Just because you’re spending more time at home doesn’t mean you can’t still style your hair and switch things up to keep your days interesting. We understand that a complicated style might be asking too much, but the undone bun is so easy to create and looks effortlessly cool. Of course, the classic bun and ponytail will always be there when you’re not feeling the creativity, 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.
Read on to learn about how you can master this perfectly undone bun in minutes:
Chill at Home with an Undone Bun
Start Off with Clean Hair
Start off with clean and conditioned hair. Try a nourishing and moisturizing system for your long hair like Suave Lavender + Almond Oil Frizz Calming Shampoo and 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 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.
