Hack This Chic Model Bun in Less Than Five Minutes

There’s nothing better than being able to hit the snooze button a few extra times in the morning but still have time to style a rad ‘do that works with any hair type (yas!). You already know how to style a braided pony, but let’s focus this week on the always popular bun. You can master this bun in no time while still looking totally polished and trendy in a snap! Get ready to happily sleep in and still look bomb in five minutes flat with this home-run hairstyle hack we’re dubbing the chic model bun.

STEP 1: CREATE A PONYTAIL

Put a ponytail in your hair and secure it with a clear elastic band. Our model is rocking her natural waves, giving this style more texture and dimension, which we love. If you have straight strands, try adding mousse to wet hair to achieve staying power and a sexy vibe.

STEP 2: FORM YOUR BUN

Turn your ponytail under, in half, and secure in place with another clear elastic band. The styling trick here is to form your bun with hair turned underneath, not on top.

STEP 3: EXPAND THE BUN

Next, widen your bun by using the pointy part of a teasing comb to spread it open. You want to exaggerate the width of your bun to keep it looking cool, fresh and purposeful. This styling trick will prevent your bun from looking like a random gym ‘do ;)

STEP 4: FOCUS ON FACE-FRAMERS

Next, define those face-framers or bangs! The key is to highlight some front fringe to give your look even more edge and style. Feel free to pin back your front fringe or let your tresses loosely frame that gorgeous face.

Rock it, girl!
