There isn't a bad hair day that a bun can't fix. And on good hair days, the perfectly styled bun feels pretty empowering.

A chic and stylish bun can seem difficult to pull off, but with the right inspiration, it can actually be quite effortless to get it right.

Your favourite Bollywood actresses swear by the perfect bun. The hairstyle goes well with western as well as Indian traditional looks, which makes it one of the top reasons why you should learn to get it right.

Here are 10 celebrity-approved ways of styling the bun to perfection.

The queen of hearts is also the queen of simple, elegant looks. She makes styling a bun out of her perfectly coloured beach waves as effortless as it looks. Her messy-yet-put-together-bun is tied low and kept neat, ensuring that her hair stays out of the way. Her chandbalis and the traditional ensemble make this fuss-free, rooted look one for the style files.

Alia's sleek bun look from her Gangubai promotions is one to die for. Her neatly styled bun goes really well with her all-white ensemble, and the white flower tucked at the bottom of the bun elevates the elegance of the hairdo. This is one stylish bun you can opt for on a bad hair day too!

It pays to have lustrous and long hair like Kiara's. 2022's breakout Bollywood star shows us how to do a sexy low bun in style and how. We love how Kiara has kept the bun clean, sleek yet soft. The chandbalis, along with the sexy saree beautifully complement Kiara's stylish bun.

You don't see Sara Ali Khan in a bun too often, but when you do you can be sure of being bowled over. We love how Sara has styled her messy bun. The coloured hair, the elegant hair band, the drop earrings and the hair ribbon are all elements that make this bun look classy, elegant and her age for Sara.

Trust Ananya Panday to set temperatures soaring with her minimal, sleek and stylish bun. The pulled-back hair keeps the bun looking sharp, with the loose hair adding the right amount of fun to the look. The bun looks especially great if you have slick-straight hair like Ananya's. 

If you are into high buns, this one's for you. Kriti's stylish messy bun is perfect for a pool party or a day at the beach. Just tie up your hair in a simple bun at the top of your head, strategically leaving a few strands of hair near the front loose for the perfect beach bun!

Madhuri Dixit remains a Bollywood heartthrob for a reason. The graceful star wore her hair in a lovely fusion-French bun. The beautiful hair accessories and jhumkas, along with her unmatchable grace work like a charm to complement her traditional stylish bun.

We expect nothing less than the most fashionable bun of them all from Sonam Kapoor Ahuja. She gets her glam on with a sleek retro bun. With the right hair length and volume, and a standout hair accessory, this stylish bun is a winner with Indian traditional wear.

The certified experimenter who brings a ton of trends into fashion, Priyanka oozes oodles of confidence with her simple and graceful hair bun. The high bun is tied up tightly, making it a great stylish bun hairstyle for those who have thick lustrous hair. 

Janhvi Kapoor reminds us of yesteryear divas with this beautiful stylish bun. This look works best for women with long hair — that just means you would get the right amount of volume to rock this look like Janhvi does!
