Create a lazy bun in 9 simple steps

Thinking of a new updo to try? Here's the lazy bun. Read on to learn how to create this 'do. 

Updos are often the go-to hairstyles for special events like weddings and fancy dinner parties. You can either put your hair in a chic ponytail or an elegant bun. Speaking of buns, there are several ways to do this classic hairstyle, and one of these is the lazy bun. Wanna learn how to create this updo? Read on to find out.


Wash hair

Use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo to make your hair smooth, nourished, and manageable. Then, follow it up Cream Silk Standout Straight Conditioner to help fight frizz and give you sleek and straight hair that can rock any hairstyle.


Spray dry shampoo

Spritz TONI&GUY Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo to add volume and texture to your hair. This will make your hair easier to style.


Put hair on the sides

Put a section of hair on the left and right sides of your face. Then, gather another section of hair from your hairline to your crown, twist it, and secure with a clip.


Create a bun

Comb the section of hair near your nape and tie it in a low ponytail using an elastic. Then, wrap your hair around the base of your ponytail to create a low messy bun. Secure it with bobby pins.



Unclip the top section of your hair. Then, spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on this section, then tease it to add more volume to your hairstyle.


Do the twist

Twist the rest of the top section of your hair and wrap this around the base of your bun. Secure it with bobby pins.


And twist again

Twist the section of hair at the right side of your face and wrap it, too, around the base of your bun. Secure it with bobby pins. Do the same on the left section. You can spritz hairspray on the sections of your hair before you twist them to give them better hold.


Add a bit of mess

Loosen some strands of hair and twist these to add texture to your hairstyle and create a chic, relaxed look.


Ready to party

Now, you can add the lazy bun to your list of favorite updos. Its textured finish can make  your hair look a bit fuller, so you won’t have to deal with flat and limp locks. You can wear the lazy bun when attending weddings, tea parties, or birthday lunches at a quaint restaurant. Complement this hairstyle with a pastel dress and ballet flats or sandals, and you’ll be good to go.
