We Can’t Stop Obsessing Over This Slicked Back Knotted Bun from Alice + Olivia F/W ’19

This sleek bun works for any special occasion. 

Inside the Angel Orensanz Center, Justine Marjan is creating a sleek knotted bun that will serve as the foundation for Alice + Olivia‘s bold and eccentric designs for Fall/Winter 2019. Marjan is using her favorite TRESemmé products while creating a look that is wearable both on the runway and off.  “We’re giving all the girls a sleek, low bun with a center part,” Marjan says. “A lot of the girls are wearing headpieces, so the look will be really clean and the headpiece will be the star of the show.”

We’re breaking down the steps for how to recreate this style on your own in just a few minutes:

Step 1: Prep your hair.

Prep your hair by spritzing the TRESemmé Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray throughout your strands to protect them from any damage done by heat styling.

Use a quick mist of TRESemmé hairspray to set the style.

Step 2: Tame frizz.

Apply a few pumps of the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum from the roots to ends of your hair to tame frizz. This will keep your style sleek and shiny. Furthermore, it will help you achieve that glossy polished finish. Then blow dry your hair straight using a hair dryer and a smoothing brush, directing the hair away from the face.

Step 3: Iron your hair.

After that, flat iron small sections of hair from the roots to the ends with a flat iron.

Step 4: Section off your hair.

Separate the hair in front of the ears, then clip it out of the way. While working on the back section only, apply TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Gel.

Step 5: Give your hair some hold.

Spritz TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hairspray in Level 4: Extend and brush almost all of your hair into a low pony while tilting the head back as you secure the hair with an elastic.

Step 6: Brush your hair back.

Brush the hair that was clipped around the face forward so it frames the face like a curtain. Then apply even more TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Gel to fingertips, and work into remaining sections of the hair and secure into the original pony with another elastic.

Step 7: Create a knot.

Twist the length of the hair into a knot and use bobby pins to secure.

Step 8: Secure your style.

Finally, finish by misting even more TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hairspray in Level 4: Extend all over and spray directly onto a toothbrush to tame pesky flyaways.
