If you like your hairstyles chic and uncomplicated, a braided side bun could be the perfect updo for you. It's an understated look that can be worn anywhere from a job interview to a yoga class to a night out with friends.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with towel dried hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout. Use a comb to ensure good all-over coverage because the cream will protect your hair from heat damage.

Step 2
Divide your hair into three sections - top, middle and nape - and blow-dry. Use a paddle brush to guide the hair straight, and keep the airflow pointed down the hair shaft to smooth your strands as they dry.

Step 3
Once dried, part your hair deep on one side - it doesn't matter which one - then sweep your tresses over to the opposite shoulder. Tie your hair into a low side ponytail below your ear, then braid it all the way to the ends.

Step 4
Wind the braid into a bun shape and secure it against the back of your head with bobby pins. Three or four pins should do it, but it all depends on the length and thickness of your hair.

Step 5
Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray. This will protect your new 'do from the elements, helping to prevent frizz and flyaways from ruining your style. That's it!
