Add texture to your hair.

Optional: Mist your hair with Suave Professionals Sea Salt Texturizing Spray to add texture to your hair. Brush through to spread the product throughout your hair. Then, backcomb your hair to enhance the texture and to create volume before creating your bun.

Place headband on hair.

Slide an elastic headband over your hair and right above your ears. This headband will help you create the most perfect croissant bun.

Tuck your hair.

Starting from your ear, take a section of your hair and wrap it around the headband. Repeat until all of your hair at the back is tucked in as you creating a neat roll.

Add pins.

To prevent your hair from moving, and to keep your headband in place, place bobby pins at the base of your bun to secure.
