/ 05.01.2015

Bun hairstyles are ideal for the weekend, whatever you have planned. They'll keep your hair up and out of the way for any physical activities, and they look super chic for brunch. So, how will you rock a bun hairstyle this weekend?

1. Low bun

A low bun updo is a great go-to look for when you need something practical, but want to keep your hairstyle as chic as possible. You can wear it tight and sleek or with a looser, more textured finish.

Styling tip

To get a subtly undone texture before creating your bun, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to damp hair and rough dry, using your hands instead of a brush to guide your hair.

2. Twisted chignon

Rather than one big piece of hair, a twisted chignon creates a more intricate look with multiple pieces pinned around each other.

Styling tip

Give your bobby pins extra grip by spraying them with a dry shampoo such as Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray.

3. Half-up knot

If you don't have time to wash your hair and you don't want to wear it all up, try a half-up knot. It does a great job of disguising dirty roots while showcasing some gorgeous movement through the lengths.

Styling tip

Add gloss and prevent frizz with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.

4. Easy knot

When you need a hairstyle for a night out and only have a few minutes to make it happen, an easy knot is the way to go. With a slightly disheveled finish, it creates a gorgeous, sultry look that can be dressed up with a hair accessory and a bold lip.

Styling tip

Spray an old toothbrush with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and use it to muss the edges of your knot for added texture.

5. Braid bun

The devil's in the detail, and one of the easiest ways to make a bun more intricate is by braiding your hair before winding it into a donut. You can stick with a regular three-strand braid or take things up a notch with a fishtail braid or rope twist.

Styling tip

Complete the look with plenty of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray to seal your strands against humidity and prevent flyaways.
