The bun itself is no new invention. In fact, different versions of an undone bun have been around forever. I’d bet even Eve rocked a bun every now and again…you know, once she dove into “fashion” a little bit. My point is that putting your hair in a bun is a trend that’s been around for the ages. However, it is the undone bun that’s been making waves on runways and just in general in fashion this season and it’s one trend that I intend to invest in. From loose ballerina buns, to messy low knots, the stage is open to whatever interpretation you prefer. The goal being nothing too tight or polished. Think more in the direction of low maintenance, I woke up late and have dirty hair, but still-look amazing-look. Always easier said than done, but below are a few pics for motivation as well as my product tips to create the look.
For texture before you put hair into bun, try my all time favorite hair product, Oribe Dry Texture. It should create a texture in hair that makes it easier to move and hold in place.
If you hair really is dirty and looking greasy in roots, try this dry shampoo by R & Co. (click link to find). It smells amazing and doesn’t leave residue like many other dry shampoos do.
After hair is up, forego the hairspray and use a little hair paste to create natural looking fly-aways and to create a piecey feeling. Try this Control Paste by Aveda.
Makeup Tip: Don’t be scared to add a pop of color to your lip. I personally love a red lip with an undone bun. Feels very Parisian.
