Edgy Side Bun: Yes, From a Bridal Runway

side bunI know what you’re thinking… a bridal show? Yes. TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu created this look for the Jenny Packham Spring/Summer 2013 Bridal Show. But, you can easily change out the bridal bling for something still blingy, but a bit less bridal. Or just skip the headband all together. I think with the crimped hair and low side bun this is a slightly edgy alternative to a traditional updo.

What you’ll need:
• TRESemmé Climate Control Foaming Mousse
• TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray
• Small elastics
• Flat iron
• Curling Iron with 1 1/4” – 1 1/2″ barrel
• Hairpins in a variety of sizes
• Clips
• Combs
• Brushes
• Blow dryer

How to get the look:
Apply TRESemmé Climate Control Foaming Mousse on damp hair and power dry on high heat using a flat brush.

Make a deep side-part and create a few random braids on the heavier side of the part, along the hairline and crown. Spray each braid with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and fasten with small elastics.

Use a flat iron to set the braids by running it along the length to create a natural crimped texture.

While the braids are cooling, use a curling iron to create soft loose waves throughout the rest of the hair.

Undo the braids and run fingers throughout, loosely pulling hair into a low ponytail to the opposite side of the part, behind the ear.

Loosely pin the length into a bun and spray with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray for a soft and touchable finish.
