We love a modern, tight bun round right here however generally you wish to ease up and go a extra relaxed route, ya know? Problem is, lots of people attempt to create an undone look and the hair kinda simply comes undone. But I obtained you, my boos. There’s a secret little trick I’ve been utilizing for the final 20 years and it has at all times helped me get that completely imperfect look with little to no effort. Every time I put one in every of these undone hairstyles on my IG web page I get a number of “But how???” feedback. Well, let me present you the simplest trick within the ebook…

HAIR PREP: Start by giving the hair a bit maintain and texture. The extra texture and help the higher relating to undone appears to be like. We prepped Emily’s hair with THIS MOUSSE ($$) from root to center after which THIS SEA SALT SPRAY ($$$) on moist ends. (PS: I additionally love THIS ONE ($) as extra inexpensive different.) Rough dry the hair with no brush, simply your fingers. I at all times use THIS BLOW DRYER which does many of the be just right for you.

THE TRICK: Tie a SMALL CLEAR ELASTIC ($) towards the ends of your hair and use it as your anchor. Leave out no matter quantity you wish to seem to have fallen out. In different phrases, if you need just a bit little bit of fall out (like this bun under), put the elastic extra towards the ends of your hair. If you need it to look extra just like the ponytail (pictured on the backside of this web page), you’d put the elastic up a bit increased, leaving out extra hair. Once the elastic is in place, twist your bun and pin it in place however let the tail half drop out. Spray with a MEDIUM HOLD HAIRSPRAY ($$) for additional help!

THE POINT: You’ll use the small clear elastic as your anchor to maintain the entire thing from falling aside. You nonetheless pin across the bun as you usually would however this lets you have these items drop down and never have your total bun unravel.

Here’s a glance a bit additional again.

And right here’s a photograph of it whenever you put the elastic up increased and do the identical factor.

Ugh. We want a video for this, don’t we? I believe we do.
