There are two most common ways of creating a bun with a weave. The first is with a sew in weave, and the other one is with braiding hair. However, for a simple bun, you can use a simple bun extension.

Comb your hair and tie it in a ponytail. Then create a bun from your own hair. Then place an extension on top of the bun you created. Use a styling gel or wax if you want the hairstyle to be sleeker.

Step 1: Wash and condition your hair. Before sewing on your weave, it is very important that you prepare your hair.

Step 2: Decide where your part is going to be, and start braiding your hair into cornrows. The first cornrow should go around the outer edge of your hair.  But when you want to put your hair into a bun, you should leave sections right around the hairline unbraided.

Step 3: Start sewing the weave from the cornrows in the center to the outer cornrows.

Step 4: Tie your hair into a ponytail and shape it carefully into a bun.

Step 5: This sew in the method should be effective even if you want to wear your hair down, but if it doesn’t look good, you can always braid those outer sections, and sew another set of extensions on.

There are a few pros and cons for both methods, but you should choose one based on your personal needs.

A sew in weave bun is more suitable for girls with shorter and thinner hair who don’t necessarily only want a bun from their weave, but also a more permanent solution for their hair situation.

However, for girls whose hair is not that short and who only want a beautiful, voluminous updo every once in a while, sewing a weave on their head could be a little bit extreme and too much of a hassle. In that situation, a nice piece of braiding hair will be just enough to do the trick and give you that perfect, puffy weave bun.
