As bun hairstyles go, an artfully disheveled look with a matte finish is one of our favorites, especially when pinned high on top of the head. It's basically just a classic topknot, only with a lot more going on and a texture that is right on-trend.
This updo is also incredibly easy to achieve with shoulder-length hair or longer. Who knows, it could soon be replacing your beloved go-to pony...
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairstyle
Step one: After towel-drying hair, apply Volume Inject Mousse evenly from roots to ends and blow-dry with a round brush. You want to get a reasonably straight finish but don't worry about getting it looking perfect.
Step two: Once dried, gather all of the hair up into a high pony. Secure with a hair elastic a couple of inches away from the top of your head then split the pony to push the hair tie closer.
Step three: Spray the lengths of the pony with High Lift Creation Spray and tease with a fine-tooth comb it until it has just about tripled in size.
Step four: Twist the pony loosely and wrap it into a bun shape. Secure with plenty of bobby pins.
Step five: Mist with Bold Control Hairspray and muss the hair on the top and sides of your head with your fingertips. Don't worry about taming flyaways, with a hairstyle like this one, they're actually beneficial!
That's all there is to it!
