From the festive season to New Year’s Eve — “The party season is here, and let’s face it, most of us are really just all about the HAIR!  And, while some styles are fun to share as a DIY with clients, this twisted bun definitely requires the skill and eye of a pro,” explains Anna Peters, Sam Villa ArTeam Member and owner of re:TREAT Color + Hair Design and Studio  @annas_hair_retreat.  Get ready to twist things up with Peter’s Twisted Bun how to.

Twisted Bun: The Steps 

  1. Prep hair with a directional blow dry by spraying Redken Quick Blow Out throughout the hair. Using a Sam Villa Professional Light Ionic Blow Dryer and Sam Villa Artist Series Polishing Paddle Brush, direct hair off the desired part following the head form to the lower nape until completely dry.
  2. To create a sleek smooth finish, glide the Sam Villa Signature Series Sleeker Professional Straightening Iron over the strands 1” section at a time. Clip hair out of the way with dry sectioning clips to ensure there are no creases in the hair.
  3. Create a sleek low ponytail at the center nape of head secure with elastic.
  4. Using a small hair padding “donut” slide 2 long sparkle cords through donut and secure at base of ponytail. Leave cords hanging with lengths of hair.

  5. Take a small section of hair close to the size of cord and twist until section begins to twist up onto itself. Once entire section is twisted, drape and secure with grips or medium hair pins across the hair padding. Do the same with the cord intertwining the hair and cord to desired visual balance.


  6. Keep each twist tangle free and clean of flyaways by sectioning each with a long tail comb and combing through a styling wax down each section for hold and shine.
  7. Continue this pattern of twisting and placement until out of hair and cord. Balance is key, try stepping away often to take a look and assess how it is coming together.



“It’s fun to let yourself get lost in creativity and create new looks for the season, it’s the perfect time to show your guests how multifaceted you are,” adds Peters.
