If you're looking for a fresh new hairstyle, street style is a great place to start. Having said that, it's also a great source of inspiration for more classic, timeless hairstyles, too, such as this volumized bun, for example. It's a hairstyle that has really stood the test of time, from ancient civilizations right through to the present day. Sometimes the simplest looks are the best!
As you can see, the relaxed, understated nature of a hairstyle like this really helps to balance a look with dressy or very vibrant attire. This girl's bun also throws extra emphasis on her face – and by extension, her best features - and, in conjunction with her XXL sunglasses, makes her bright lipstick the focus of her beauty look.
Essentially, a bun allows for plenty of different clothing and makeup options because it keeps the hair under control and off the face. If you want to try a similar look, keep reading to find out how to get the look in hardly any time at all!
What you need:
Step one: With a bristle brush, remove any knots or tangles then smooth the hair back into a high ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.
Step two: Spray the pony all the way down with strong-hold hairspray. Take a fine-tooth comb and tease the pony until it's somewhere between double and triple its original size. Be really gentle when backcombing through the strands, however, to avoid causing split ends and unwanted shaft breakage.
Step three: Twist the now XXL pony and wrap it around into a loose, large bun. Secure with as many bobby pins as you need - there's no golden rule, it all depends on how long/thick your hair is.
Step four: Mist the style all over with more hairspray. To tame any flyaways or frizz on the tops and sides of your head, spray a little into the palm of your hand and then smooth the hair down firmly. That's it!
Now all you have to do is find a street style-worthy outfit to team with your new hairstyle. Happy styling!
