How to Make a Bun With Loose Curls at Home

In the mood to glam up? Put your hair in a bun with loose curls. Here are the easy steps on how to create this hairstyle.
Hair Types

Putting your hair in an updo doesn’t need to be reserved only for special occasions. If you want to glam up a little and try a new hairstyle, why don’t try making a bun with loose curls? It’s elegant and relaxed at the same time. Ready? Here’s how to do it.


Prep your hair

The best hairstyles begin with a good wash. Choose a shampoo that helps make your hair look thicker like Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Shampoo. Follow it up with Dove Nourishing Secrets Thickening Ritual Conditioner for best results.


Split and secure

Divide your hair into two horizontal sections and clip the top section.


Tie your hair

Put the bottom section of your hair into a low ponytail using a clear elastic. Leave some strands loose.


Twist and spray

Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your low ponytail while twisting it to keep all strands in place.


Create a bun

Roll the ponytail sideways to form a bun. Secure it with bobby pins.


Work on the upper section

Remove the clip on the upper section of your hair. Tie this section with a clear elastic, leaving some strands loose.


Add volume

Gently pull some sections of your hair to give more volume to your bun with loose curls. Then, spritz hairspray while twisting your ponytail to keep all strands in.



Form another bun

Roll the top section of the ponytail sideways to create another bun and secure with bobby pins.


Curl your hair

Get a curling iron and wrap one loose section at a time around the barrel. Curl it away from your face. Continue until you finish curling all loose sections of your hair.



As a final touch, spritz hairspray all over your bun with loose curls to make your hairstyle last long.



Look in the mirror and see the elegant hairstyle you’ve just created. And it didn’t take more than 15 minutes! Why don’t you wear a bun with loose curls when you’re having a romantic date at home? You’ll definitely look stunning.
