Recreate a textured bun à la Karlie Kloss!

Karlie Kloss can always be relied upon for great hairstyle inspiration, especially when we need something glam for a night out! We just love the L'Oréal Paris spokesperson's approach to beauty, mainly because she's really into hairstyles that can be recreated (read: stolen) without the help of an red carpet stylist.

To recreate her textured ballerina bun featured opposite, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
If you're starting with freshly washed hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse throughout then rough-dry. This will give your hair a full bodied look.

Step 2
Brush your hair through to smooth it out, then gather it all up into a high ponytail. Secure the pony with a hair elastic.

Step 3
Twist and pin the ponytail into a bun shape and secure with bobby pins.

Step 4
Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum on your fingertips, then muss the top and sides of your head. Start at the back and flick your fingers toward the front to generate flyaways. If the bun looks a little smooth, muss that too.

Step 5
Complete your new ballerina bun with a veil of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. This will prevent frizz and give your style up to 24 hours of long-lasting hold.
