Try a low bun with a center part for a retro 1960's look

Retro hairstyles like Hollywood waves and high-volume curls are not so much old fashioned as they are eternal. Often, the simpler retro 'dos are the best, just like this low bun. Teamed with a center part and big hoop earrings - no, they didn't all disappear at the end of the nineties - it creates the perfect 60's beauty look.

This kind of hairstyle also happens to be spectacularly easy to recreate.

What you need:

Tail comb
Barrel brush
Hair elastic
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one

Towel-dry your hair and use a tail comb to define a center part. Comb through all of your hair until it's all smooth and straight, taking care to work gently through any tangles (just pulling a comb or brush through them can cause split ends).

Step two

Apply Iron Straight Heatspray generously to protect your tresses and promote super sleek results. Then, blow-dry it straight using a barrel brush.

Step three

Once hair is totally dry, pull it back into a low ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.

Step four

Twist the pony and roll it into a bun. Secure with as many bobby pins as you need - it all depends how much hair you have and how secure you want it to feel.

Step five

Tease the bun slightly to add texture and spray with Bold Control to lock in your style.

It's that easy!
