A simple and sophisticated hairstyle does wonders for your look. Achieve it in minutes by creating the half updo with bun. 

More often than not, long hair can be challenging to style on a daily basis. With so many styles out there, it can even be intimidating to get started. The good thing is that there are easy hairstyles that even beginners can achieve with the help of reliable products.



7 Steps in Creating a Half Updo with Bun



 

1

Start strong

The foundation of any hairstyle is strong, healthy, and manageable hair. Wash and protect hair from damage with TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Shampoo. Then, follow it up with Cream Silk Hairfall Defense Conditioner to help reduce hairfall.

Section your hair

Divide your hair into two horizontal sections and gather a portion of the upper part into a half bun. Use a hair tie to secure the half bun in place. Make sure to leave a tail or free strands from the half bun for the following step.

Braid it

Gathering the tail of your half bun, divide it into three sections and start weaving these into a three-strand braid. Then, secure the end with an elastic.

Coil it

Wrap the three-strand braid around the half bun and secure into place with bobby pins. You can use as many bobby pins as you need.

Protect from heat

Spritz TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist on the lower section of your hair. The spray will protect your hair from heat damage caused by using a curling iron and other heated styling tools.

Create romantic waves

Take small sections from the lower part of your hair and start curling these from the middle to the tips.

#HairHack: Curling iron barrels can get piping hot. Use a heat glove to protect your hand from unnecessary burns. This way, you can also coil your hair more closely around the barrel.

All done!

Continue curling the remaining sections of hair until you achieve soft, bouncy waves. Voila! Your simple but chic look is complete.
