If you prefer minimal aesthetics or love clean girl vibes, opt for this stylish low bun style. Begin by spraying your strands with a frizz-killing serum such as L’Oreal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In ($18). Once that step is complete, pull your hair into a tight ponytail and twist it into a low bun at the nape of your neck, securing it with bobby pins as needed.
For an elegantly romantic style, leave some face-framing strands loose to soften the bun and add an eye-catching accent like pearls on either side. To add an elegant finishing touch to your bun, wrap ribbon or gold wire around it before securing it with bobby pins. This is a simple yet effective way to elevate your everyday look and special events like weddings. Make sure that when finished off with hairspray, it lasts all night!
