Buns are among the most versatile updos. You have your messy bun for a day full of errands. When you want to get your hair off your face when doing yoga, for instance, you put your hair in a neat ballerina bun. If you love bun hairstyles so much, here’s another ‘do that we’re sure you’d love to try: the sleek low bun with side part. Read on to learn how to make it.
8 Steps to Create a Sleek Low Bun with Side Part
Use DOVE Straight and Silky Shampoo to help make hair shiny and keep each strand nourished. Then, finish washing your hair with DOVE Straight and Silky Conditioner to help make hair soft and silky smooth.
Create side part
Decide whether to part your hair on the left side or right side. You can use a tail comb to part your hair. If you don’t have one, just use your fingers.
Apply a dollop of TONI&GUY Volume Plumping Mousse on your hair to prep it for styling. The mousse will also make your hair sleek and frizz-free. Apply the mousse evenly on your hair.
Tie your hair
Comb your hair and put it into sleek, low ponytail. Tie your hair with an elastic that is the same color as your hair for a more polished look.
Clip the left and right side of your hair so it stays in place as you create your bun. Keep the clips from leaving marks on your hair by tucking a tissue between your hair and the clips.
Spritz TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray on your low ponytail to make sure all strands are in place. Then, twist your hair and wrap it around the base of your ponytail. Secure with bobby pins.

Sleek Low Bun: Sleek Hairstyles to Try

1. Braid Ponytail
Ponytails are the go-to hairstyle for just about every Pinay. It’s perfect for hot and humid days, as well as for busy days at work. But why settle for a simple ‘do when you can amp it up with a braid? After making your sleek high ponytail, take a small section of hair to cover the elastic for a nicer look. Then, braid your hair and tie it with another clear elastic. Create fluffier and thicker braids by gently pulling the sections. Ta-da! Your instant ponytail upgrade in minutes!
Editor’s tip: Style your hair any way you want, be it a sleek low bun or a ponytail, without worrying about hair fall. Use Cream Silk Hairfall Defense Conditioner, which strengthens your weak and brittle strands so that you can enjoy any hairstyle.
2. Curly Ponytail
Your sleek top hair beautifully contrasts the curly ponytail. If you’re naturally curly, you just need to emphasize the curls by twirling sections of your hair with your fingers, with the help of hairspray. If you have straight hair, it’s best to curl it after making the ponytail to nail the sleek finish. Trust us; you’ll love the light and bouncy feel of your ponytail with your every move.
Editor’s tip: Achieve the perfect sleek hairstyle with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Smooth Hold Hairspray. It looks invisible on your hair but keeps a light hold so that you can enjoy a pretty and sleek hairstyle anytime.
3. Scarf Bun
Perhaps you have lots of scarves lying around in your closet that you’ve already forgotten about. Don’t throw them away as they can be used for your next hairstyle–the scarf bun. Just roll the scarf lengthwise into a strip and twist your hair with it until it forms a bun. You can even match your scarf’s color to your OOTD!
4. Sleek and Fierce Ponytail
Nailing this sleek and fierce ponytail is definitely a hairstyle victory. It’s simple yet elegant and sophisticated. Make it look its best by making sure that your ponytail is smooth and free from tangles. We recommend using a straightening iron before making the ponytail to ensure that your hair has a nice drop and bounce.
5. Sleek Braid with Accessories
It’s easy to leave our hair elastics around when we don’t need them. But you can most definitely make good use of them by using them as an accessory to a simple low braid ponytail. After making your low ponytail, line up several elastics, then, finish off by braiding your hair. You can also use a gemmed clip over the base of your ponytail for the perfect evening look.
Sleek hairstyles never go out of style. So, master these hairstyles and look pretty all the time!
