3 ways to style hair buns

Whether it's a formal night out or a casual get-together with friends, hair buns are as chic or sassy as you want them to be. Here are three ways to refresh your ballerina buns.

Top knot


Perfect for any texture of hair, the top knot is an ultra-chic look that helps you look put together in an effortless manner. A go-to style for a lazy or casual day, this easy hairstyle is easy to achieve. The key to a great top knot is volume, so use a texturizing spray (we recommend Morning After Dust by L'Oréal Professionnel), or backcomb your hair before you twist it up into a bun. For extra volume, turn your hair upside down and brush it, then twirl the hair atop your head in a bun, and secure it with a tight elastic for a ballerina-esque look. Use bobby pins to keep it from falling out easily.

Braided forehead top knot

Elevate the look of your regular braided bun with a braided top knot that sits above your forehead. The perfect high fashion look, this braided bun creates textures on top of your head and pulls back any baby hair that you may have on your forehead.

Low side bun

Perfectly coiffed and smooth, the low side bun is the ideal style for shorter hair. Keep the hair off your neck with this low side bun, and relieve your scalp from constantly keeping it up in tight updos. Braid your hair and roll it up into a low chignon on the side of your head, at the bottom. Pair it with a strong necklace for a posh look, or create a looser and less coiffed version for a daytime style. Finish off this sleek look with a spritz of Infinium hairspray to keep it all in place. The ultra-fine hair lacquer leaves behind no residue for high fixation and high shine!
