How To: Classic Bun


A classic, simple bun has become one of my favourite hairstyles this summer.  It's just so hot out and if you have long hair like me, all you want to do is have it out of your face and off your shoulders!  (Great for tanning too ;)  It's just such an easy, laid-back hairstyle and it doesn't have to look severe if you style it the right way.

All you need is one elastic band, 4 bobby pins (depending on the thickness of your hair), a brush and some hairspray.  (I used L'Oreal Elnett for Dry and Damaged Hair.)  If you can put your hair in a pony-tail, you can put it in a bun too.  Here's how I do it:

1. Brush your hair back off your face and make it into a high ponytail.
2. Twist the hair around the elastic band in the middle of your head in a clockwise direction, while keeping the bun flat and in place with your hand.
3. Pin the sides of the bun, working in the same direction as the hair (clockwise).
4. Spray with some hairspray to keep in place and you're done!

So let me know, what are your favourite simple summer hairstyles to do?

Stay Stylish!
