Get The Look: The Chic Bun In 4 Easy Steps

This chic bun is a style that can take you from day to night. But if you don’t know how to get it right it can look like a cat’s been through your hair! This beautiful look was seen at the Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet Fall 2011 collection at New York Fashion Week.

Here’s how Sebastian Professional’s Lead Stylist and Global Design Team Artist, Thomas Dunkin created the look in 4 easy steps using Sebastian Professional products:

Get The Look:

1. To start, dampen the hair with water and generously apply Volupt Spray throughout the hair. Blow the hair out with just your fingers, keeping any natural texture in the hair and making sure the hair has plenty of volume.

2. Once the hair is completely dry, leave a soft parting where the hair falls into a break naturally. From here, spritz all over with Shine Define for flexible control and gently pull back the hair to either the center or to either side.

3. Twist very small, subtle sections on the sides and pull hair back into a large chignon and allow what pieces pop out to remain loose. Secure with a natural-colored hair band, matte bobby pins and fine pins. Pull the chignon into a pretty shape and secure with a few more pins.

4. Finally, spritz the hair with Trilliant for a soft natural hold and beautiful shine.
