Tutorial: Create the Undone Bun for Summer

The undone look that's perfectly put together.

If you have long hair, you probably have some serious love/hate vibes with your hair during the summer. Since cutting it off is out of the question, you’ll have to figure out how to get your hair off the sweat zone (a.k.a your neck) as you form your locks into a cool hairstyle. Of course, the classic bun and ponytail will always be there when you’re in need of some relief, but we think it’s time to kick-things up (ever so slightly) with the latest hairstyle for long haired girls with the undone bun. Just as its name states, this undone look is a take on the messy bun, except with some strands of hair that slightly hang out of your twisted bun. Perfect for the busy girl who wants some options for her long hair, we love how you can dress up this look for cocktails with the girls or rock in on the beach for the ultimate in casual and cool summer hair vibes. Read on to learn about how you can master this perfectly undone bun in minutes.

Look of Summer: Undone Bun for Long Hair


Start off with clean hair.

Start off with clean and conditioned hair. Try a nourishing and moisturizing system for your long hair like the Suave Professionals Natural Infusion Macadamia Moisturizing Shampoo and the Suave Professionals Natural Infusion Macadamia Moisturizing Conditioner. These formulas work to make your hair really soft and shiny. Bonus: it has an awesome fragrance!  Next up, is getting your hair dry. Before you blow-dry your hair, apply a heat protectant like the Suave Professionals Keratin Heat Defense Leave-in Conditioner whose formula can help protect your locks during the heat styling process.







Hold your hair up.

Brush your hair with a boar bristle brush to detangle your hair as you make it smooth and ready for styling. When finished, gather your hair with both hands into a very high ponytail.




Twist your hair.

Use both hands to gently twist the hair that’s contained in your ponytail. Your dominant hand will work to twist your hair upwards and then down where your non-dominant hand completes the twisted motion. Repeat this process until you get to the tip of your hair.




Wrap hair around.

After you twist your locks, wrap it around the base of your hair where your bun is situated. Use both hands to create this look as you focus on a high and tight bun. For the undone part, leave at least two inches of your ends out of your bun. Hold it together by placing some bobby pins on the part of your hair that isn’t in the bun.





Use some serum like the Dove Absoute Quench Supreme Creme Serum to smooth out any frizz that may have acclimated along your crown.







There you have it – a new and fun undone bun hairstyle that you can rock with ease on your long hair this summer!
