We're always on the lookout for great hairstyle inspiration and this street style look, complete with a big bun (and excellent sunglasses) is one of our recent favorites. This girl really knew what she was doing. The big bun trend has enchanted everyone from fashionistas to actors to musicians to TV stars to, well, just about everybody with hair long enough to try it, and shows no sign of slowing down. This textured, super volumized version is a really eye-catching take on the style and one that's certainly worth trying.

It's a really great hairstyle for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's perfect for hiding a bad hair day as you can hide the more problematic sections of hair or simply make them part of the huge messy bun. Secondly, it's a style that is a lot of fun and very easy to recreate.

For any of you who would like to try this huge hairstyle out at home, we have a simple how-to for you!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle TXT Tousle Waves Spray
Hair elastic.
Bobby pins
LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one

After towel-drying hair, apply Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout your hair and blow-dry. Scrunch hair while drying to build up volume and texture.

Step two

When hair is dry, use a comb to tease hair slightly for added lift. Then, pull it all up into a very high ponytail on the very top of your head and secure with a hair elastic.

Step three

If you have particularly fine hair, you might want to use a hair donut at this point. Simply pass the pony through the middle and tease it some more before pinning into place all around the donut. You want you hair to totally cover it so use a mirror to double-check than all you can see is your hair.

For those of you with long and/or very thick hair, you hair has an inner donut it might not have told you about... you just have to tease it into shape. Apply more Tousle Waves Spray and tease hair with a comb. Once you have pretty much tripled the size of the pony, wrap it around into a large bun shape and secure with bobby pins.

Step four

Use your fingers to gently muss the bun a little more and finish with a generous mist of Bold Control Hairspray.

After that, all you have to do is find the perfect sunglasses to go with your new hairstyle...
