The Effortless Bun: Your Go-to Hairstyle for Days Spent at Home

Simple and chic, this style will be your go-to look all season long. 

Let’s be real, we all have days when we can’t find an ounce of effort to do our hair. While we’re either working from home or spending our whole day inside, it can seem like a daunting task to even think about doing a proper updo.  That’s where our go-to effortless bun comes into play. You’ll be surprised how much better you’ll feel when you brush your hair and style it, even if it’s just a simple updo.

The effortless bun is perhaps the queen bee of all multi-tasking style elements. All you need is the right hair products and a handful of bobby pins to create a look that’s truly appropriate for everything from video calls to at-home spa nights.

Prep Your Effortless Bun

It doesn’t get easier than this.

Like most styles these days, it all starts with texture. Spritz your dry strands with TRESemmé Dry Texture Finish Spray, which will help revive strands for added volume and texture. We love this spray because you don’t need any water to help boost your strands. This is a great way to give your bun and overall natural and airy look.

Give Strands an Extra Boost

If your hair needs an added boost after using a texture spray, you can use a curling wand to add some randomly scattered curls. Make sure to protect your hair with TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray so you don’t roast your tresses in the process. Then, use your curling wand to create loose curls throughout your style.

Create Your Effortless Bun

Now you’re ready to create this iconic effortless bun. If your hair is on the thinner side you can coil all your strands at the back of your head and criss-cross bobby pins to hold the style in place. If your hair is on the thicker side, you might need the help of hairspray to keep the style in place. We suggest spraying your finished look with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Level 2 Hold Curl Hair Spray once you’ve placed all your bobby pins where you want them. Lastly, tug a few pieces out around your face for a flattering, face-framing and truly effortless style.
