Step 1: Start with clean hair.

Before creating your confetti bun hairstyle, cleanse and condition your hair with a hair care system that gives you sleek, frizz-free hair. Editors’ pick: TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth ConditionerAfter the wash and conditioning process, blow-dry your hair until it’s completely dry.

Step 2: Create your bun.

Apply a styling oil, like Suave Professionals Moroccan Infusion Styling Oil, to your hair for shine, then use a hair brush to smooth your hair up into a sleek bun. Secure your knot with hairpins to keep it in place. If you need help with this step, check out our simple ballerina bun tutorial.

Step 3: Apply some gel.

Squeeze a dollop of TRESemmé TRES Two Mega Firm Control Gel onto your hands and smooth it over your bun.
