Which big bun gets your vote?

The bun is a summer staple and it can be worn in many different ways. Right now, however, we just can't get enough of big, XXL looks, like the braided bun and messy updo above! The question is, which one would you be more likely to wear?

Braided bun

There are some hairstyles you can wear absolutely everywhere and a braided bun is one of them! It's a simple yet very effective hairstyle that will keep long hair up and under control, while protecting it from any humidity in the air, too. Oh, and did we mention how chic this updo is?

Styling tip

Keep your style sleek by applying a high shine finishing spray like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. This will help to calm your hair after styling, and it will prevent any unwanted frizz and flyaways from materializing throughout the day.

Messy bun

Whether you just jumped out of the pool, or you're down for some slick hair experimentation this summer, a messy bun is a great go-to option. The texture balances the wet finish perfectly and you can team your bun with a headband for an instant upgrade.

Styling tip

When applying gel, start small and add more as needed. With a product like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel, a little bit goes a really long way, and you only need the bare minimum for a messy bun.

So, which big bun hairstyle gets your vote?
