The best part? It’s also super simple to master. Check out this tutorial on how to do a military bun for a super quick and easy way to style your hair.
How To Do A Military Bun?
- Wear a military hat in the style of a beret, not a baseball cap. The hat should be tight around your head and fit snugly under your chin. It should fit snugly enough to keep your head from moving up and down with the shifting of the plane. If you are wearing a garrison cap, remove it when you’re in the air and replace it at the end of your flight.
- A long scarf is worn around the neck under the hat; its purpose is to provide warmth, but it also helps tie up or hold back hair or headgear so that it doesn’t interfere with flying controls while in flight. When you’re on the ground, take off your scarf before entering buildings (which may have high ceilings) or caves, since they could get caught in doors or other obstructions and cause injury if you weren’t able to get rid of them quickly enough before entering.
- The military bunt has a leather or rubber band worn at the top of the head to keep hair out of the way.
- The leather band should be tight enough to keep a bun in place, but not so tight that it cuts off circulation to your head or causes discomfort when you move your head or when you’re lying down. It should fit snugly around the back of your neck and under your chin, allowing no more than one finger’s width between it and your earlobes. The band should go under the hat and be made of leather or rubber, not cloth; otherwise, it will get sweaty from lack of air circulation and cause skin irritation.
- To create a bun with hair spray, twist-up several strands of hair at the base of your neck so they stand upright in front of you, then spray them with hair spray until they are completely damp (you can also use hairspray if you prefer). Tie them up with a piece of string or rubber band.
- If you prefer, you can also use hair oil to hold your hair in place. You may want to wrap the oiled strands around your head and loosely tie them up with a ribbon or elastic band; this will give you more control over how much of the hair is visible.
- A bun with a comb, not hair spray or oil, is easier to make than one made with spray or oil because there’s no mess and it’s less time-consuming than using hair spray or oil to hold your hair up in place. Use the comb to pull out all of your unruly locks and then run the comb through them until they are completely damp, then tie them up with a piece of string or elastic band for a bun that’s ready for flight.
- For an even faster bun, use hairspray instead of wetting and tying your hair; simply spray a fine mist of hairspray over your hair, then comb it with a fine-tooth comb. The spray will then hold all of your hair in place while you go about your business.
- When you’re ready to take off, pull the scarf over your head and secure it under the band at the back of your neck; this will keep it from getting caught indoors or in other obstructions on the ground, as well as keep it from fluttering around when you’re flying. Then take off your hat and put on a helmet (if wearing one).
- While flying, keep the scarf tied under the band at the back of your neck; if necessary, use both hands to cover yourself with it so that no one can see that you have wings when you’re wearing a helmet and goggles with opaque lenses.
What Is A Military Bun?
A military bun is a basic, no-fuss style with a great, polished finish. It’s simple, yet classic, and looks great on most hair lengths. You essentially create a bun by twisting your hair into a bun. It’s simple, yet takes practice to get it right. Once you’ve mastered the basic knot, it’s easy to add bows to make it more stylish. We’ve got you covered with some of the best bun designs and tutorials you’ll ever find.
Best Steps How To Do A Military Bun?
- Start by taking one section of your hair and wrapping it around the other end, tying it with a small piece of hair tie.
- Grab the loose end of your braid and pull it through your looped bun, pulling until the bun is tight enough to hold itself in place; adjust if necessary by using more hair ties.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 on all sections of hair, making sure to evenly distribute them across your head so that they are even throughout (unless you have very curly or thick hair, in which case you may need to divide your sections up).
- Once all sections are in place, take the loose end of your braid and twist it around one hand; grab the second hand on either side and pull the ends over both hands together, pulling until there is no longer any space between them (you should be able to see a visible knot).
- Repeat step 4 with both arms before finishing off with another twist on each arm (again, tightening the bun so it’s secure).
- Once you’ve finished the bun, pull it up and away from your face and leave it over your head for a few minutes to ensure that it’s securely in place.
- Once you’re happy with the bun, pull it away from your face and secure it in place with a hair tie.
- For a polished finish, secure the bun with a few hairsprays (you can also use a bobby pin or pin-curl bar if you’re feeling lazy).
