Hair Bun with Enisa

Hair Bun with Enisa

The hair bun worn by Enisa has become as much her signature as much as her music.  The 2014 Prom Guide Cover Model, now recording artist, best known for the single, Burn This Bridge and the soon to be released Karma takes time out from a photo shoot to demonstrate how she puts her hair up in a bun.

We’ve seen this look quite a bit on the runway and we’re here to break down the self-proclaimed classic “Enisa Bun”.

  1. Her hair is gorgeous. Since I am natural I have a slightly different way of doing my high bun but it is essentially the same. I dont use a rat tail or hairspray but gel is my best friend!

  2. What a beautiful hair style! I always have hard time to make it into a clean bun myself. But this method and video instruction is awesome!

  3. That’s a fantastic way of making a bun! I love to try this one out. I really have to take care of my hair this time, I think the most neglected part of myself in terms of grooming is my hair. I haven’t really invested on hair products that will really maximize the natural waviness and look of my hair.

  4. I will never get tired of wearing a classic bun for any occasions. Now that I have shoulder-length hair, I’m missing it! I can’t wait to get my hair even longer 😀
