Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The bun as a hairstyle has long indicated a very specific character type. It shows a woman as neat, prim, proper, and organized. As such it tends to be favored by Proper Ladies, librarians, School Teachers, nannies, doctors, serious office ladies, and women of a certain age.
Characters with this hairstyle tend to be respected and be in charge. They also tend to be more conservative and tight-laced than other characters.
Naturally, it makes this hairstyle common for a Lady of War who chooses to eschew Tomboyish Ponytail or Braids of Action, though the latter could be easily converted into a bun.
Often times, this leads to Letting Her Hair Down if she decides to break out of that mold. Part of what creates the appeal of the Hot Librarian.
A Sister Trope to Power Hair (an Iron Lady's hairstyle), Girlish Pigtails (a properly girlish hairstyle), and Regal Ringlets (an extravagant, but still proper, style).
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Compare Odango Hair (two buns placed high on a character's head).
Contrast Tomboyish Ponytail and Motherly Side Plait.
Note: This trope is for using visual shorthand to characterize an individual. It is not a trope for every character who happens to have a bun. Please remember this when editing the example list.

Wonder Woman: In her Diana Prince alter ego Wonder Woman, is a prim domineering by the book bespectacled WAC secretary who always wears her hair in a bun. This is contrasted with her co-worker Lila Brown who is Steve Trevor's secretary and almost always wears her hair loose and is driven nuts by Diana's attention to detail and sticking so close to the rules as written.

Nanao Ise in Bleach, Lieutenant of the 8th Division. Not only does she wear her hair in the bun, but she also wears glasses and is frequently seen carrying a book (making her arguably a Hot Librarian as well). She is also so stiff and formal that her captain (a Professional Slacker in contrast) keeps trying to convince her to lighten up a little.

Jane Porter from Tarzan initially wears a prim bun in line with her British Stuffiness, but she loses it as she accommodates to the jungle environment.
During her coronation, Elsa from Frozen wears a French crown braid with a twisted bun above the neck. When she realizes she can cut loose with her emotions, she tears out the braid and allows her hair to hang in relative freedom.

RWBY:
Glynda Goodwitch wears a large ballet bun above the neck. Compared to Ozpin's laid-back attitude and amused tolerance for Ruby's ditzy behaviour, she's stern, restrained and seems as frustrated by Ozpin's attitude as by Ruby's. Even her kindness is stern: when she compliments Ruby, her tone of voice is firm and professional and is quickly followed by an admonishment of Ruby's reckless heroics.
Winter Schnee wears a high bun at the rear left corner of her head. She's a high-ranking member in the Atlesian military and a stern and professional woman who carries herself with dignity and elegance.

Professor McGonagall wears her hair like this in Harry Potter. When she says the Yule ball is a chance to "let down our hair", Harry notes that she looks like she has never actually let her hair down in any sense. note  Interestingly, he does later note that her hair had come down while she and the other teachers are preparing for the Battle of Hogwarts.

Discworld:
Susan finds that her Expressive Hair tends to twist itself into a bun of its own volition. As she works as a governess or school teacher when she's not saving the world it's rather fitting.
Granny Weatherwax wears her hair in a "tight bun that could crack rocks." It also serves as a convenient sheath for her weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat, hatpins.
Adora Belle Dearheart in Going Postal wears a bun as well. She wears plain gray dresses, is an Office Lady who works for golems and was formerly a bank teller, and says she has no sense of humor, largely because of her Unfortunate Name. She's actually quite attractive, especially to Moist, but she's still proper and serious.

The only time she's shown with her hair down is in flashbacks when she was in elementary school and she was a lot less rigid back then. She's shown to be very strict and formal, and she does not hesitate to use her whip on the boys for any kind of misbehavior.

On Time Trax, SELMA (Specified Encapsulated Limitless Memory Archive), Darien's credit-card-sized artificially intelligent supercomputer, projects a holographic image matching this trope: hair in a high bun, an old-fashioned high-neckline blouse and long skirt, and a prim expression. Her image is modeled on an image of Darien's mother he painted as a child, and her relationship with him, whether prompted by this iconography or not, is often decidedly maternal in nature.

Liz Shaw in Doctor Who has a bun in her first story. It's probably not a coincidence that in subsequent stories, once the ice has been broken with the Doctor and the Brigadier, the bun goes.

Subverted with "Lady Borgia" Ogiwara from Dear Brother. She is first seen as a soft-spoken and dignified Onee-sama type and later reveals herself as a massive Smug Snake. She originally had bobbed hair in the manga, but her hairstyle changed to a large high bun in the anime series.

Marie from Splatoon usually wears a high bun, to match her calm and quiet reputation. She occasionally lets it down when she's off duty.

Chi-Chi from Dragon Ball wears a high bun throughout the Boo Saga and Dragon Ball Super. While she has softened up from her Education Mama attitude during the Time Skip between the Cell Saga and Boo Saga, she returns to her old mentality again after the Boo Saga ends. The hairstyle mostly serves to make Chi-Chi look older after the Time Skip (while Bulma, ironically, looks younger than before despite being four years older than her), which becomes obvious when she has her hair down in Super.

The Alice Network: Though a female spy is not exactly proper, the worrier Violette is still significantly more serious and respectable than her colleagues (young, innocent Eve and cheerful, funny Lili)… and she has the bun to match.

Jinora from The Legend of Korra wears a high bun at the rear right corner of her head. She's the most mature and reserved of her siblings. She does shave her hair off temporarily to get her Airbending tattoos but once it grows back, she's back to the bun.

In Once Upon a Time, this seems to be the go-to hairstyle for most of the show's female villains, usually to emphasize their cold and cruel nature. In an inversion of Letting Her Hair Down, flashbacks typically show their hair either worn down or in less severe styles prior to their Start of Darkness, only to then adopt the bun after their inevitable Face–Heel Turn:
Regina wore several different hairstyles during her past as the Evil Queen. One of the more commonly used styles was a rather elaborate bun that she seemed to always wear when performing her most sadistic deeds. In modern day Storybrooke, she starts off with a short bob which gets longer and looser following her eventual Heel–Face Turn.
Regina's mother, Cora, wears her own bun similar to the one Regina favored as the Evil Queen. After her death, Regina later finds Cora's spirit in the Underworld, where her hair is down as she pulls a Heel–Face Turn and finally reconciles with her estranged daughter.
Zelena wears a bun of her own when she's in full Wicked Witch mode, which comes down after her Heel–Face Turn and redemption.
The Snow Queen wears a bun because it was the hairstyle that she happened to be wearing on the day that she accidentally froze and shattered one of her sisters for her Start of Darkness. In modern day Storybrooke, she initially wears a looser ponytail when posing as the friendly owner of the local ice cream shop, but immediately switches back to the bun full-time once her cover is blown and the whole town knows her true identity.
Even Emma herself adopts the standard female villain bun when she becomes the new Dark One, and just as quickly abandons it when she loses the Dark One powers and goes back to being the Savior.
One of the flashbacks during Emma's tenure as the Dark One revealing how the lineage of Dark Ones started shows that the woman who became the very first Dark One also gained the same bun as Emma in an Expository Hairstyle Change upon gaining her powers, implying that this bun is part of the standard package for female Dark Ones.

Eva Kant from Diabolik, in spite of her status as one of the most beautiful women in the series and propensity for fanservice. Justified: before marrying, she used to wear a Tomboyish Ponytail, but adopted this hairstyle on her wedding night to accentuate her resemblance with her mother (who wore her hair in a bun) and screw with her husband lord, Antony Kant, her uncle, who was responsible for the death of her mother and Eva growing up in an Orphanage of Fear without a family or her real last name (why she had married him in first place: to take back her last name). Upon learning who he had married, lord Kant (who at least drew the line at incest) had a heart attack, and Eva continued wearing her hair this way in celebration ever since.

Star Trek: Voyager
Captain Janeway had this style◊ for most of the first season, which was known as The Bun of Steel.
The coldly-efficient Seven of Nine used this style for her first 3 seasons on the show. As she was also a Ms. Fanservice, she uses a French pleat that adds to her attractiveness rather than an actual bun, but the principle is the same.

The T-X in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines starts with her hair down due to being Naked on Arrival like all time travelers (both human and Terminator) from the future, but immediately steals this hairstyle along with the clothes from the first human woman she finds and kills and keeps it for the rest of the film, where it helps to emphasize the cold and emotionless nature that she has as a hostile Terminator.

In My Little Pony: Equestria Girls – Friendship Games, the human version of Twilight Sparkle wears a large high bun. Being the Teen Genius of Crystal Prep High School, it's meant to invoke the same character type; she's become way more academic than athletic, unlike the rest of Crystal Prep.

Kano Ienaga from Golden Kamuy wears a high bun, with the demeanor of a Yamato Nadeshiko. It's mostly a ruse as she's actually a Serial Killer posing as a False Widow to get people to trust her so she can lure them into her hotel to eat them.
