If you’re growing tired of an itsy-bitsy bun hairstyle, it’s time to turn things up a notch by adding a bit of volume to the look. Adding volume to your bun creates a bigger statement to your hairstyle allowing it to stand out from the rest. There are a few ways you can add volume to your bun to create this stylish resort updo trend in particular. However, we’re going to stick with the simplest way you can create the look at home with foolproof hair hacks, and by using the right wash and care system before styling.

To prep your hair for creating this look, opt for washing with a volumizing shampoo and conditioner like Love Beauty and Planet Volume and Bounty Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help eliminate some steps down the line like adding extra hair into your bun to create a fuller look. Before wrapping the ends of your hair into a bun, tease the lengths of your hair while it’s in a ponytail to add texture. If you aren’t into texture, you can just skip the teasing step and wind your ends around the base of your ponytail and pin in place.

After creating your bun and pinning in place, it’s time to pancake, or gently spread the hair apart to make your knot as big as you want it. Set your hair with a firm hold hairspray like TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 to complete your look.

This simple resort updo trend is extremely versatile. If you’re wearing this look to your wedding, you can add a crown, or other bridal accessories to dress it up. If it’s a casual look, opt for no accessories at all, or something less fancy like a cute headband.
