Buns that Stay Put: A Tip From the RunwayThursday, September 24, 2009
A low, classic bun is always a favorite on the runways in New York. It is simple and elegant, and chances are that many of you will be trying out this look for events this upcoming holiday season.
But, there's a problem. Most of us can't get our buns to look like the one above. It was created by Celebrity hair stylist, Philip Pelusi and his Tela design team for Caroline Seikaly’s Spring 2010 show. Instead, I tend to get hair that looks like that for about... 10 minutes. And then it falls down.
Read on to find out how to get hair to stay put!
The secret, according to Philip Pelusi, is to spray the length of your hair/ponytail with holding spray before twisting your hair into bun. The hairspray gives texture to the strands, allowing them to be easily manipulated. Most people spray the bun after, when they are already have the hair pinned and set, this is a much less affective method in keeping the hair to stay in place.
So, remember to spray before you twist!
