Prom Hair 101: The Sleek Bun



Step 1: Choose the Right Products

When creating a bun that will shine on the dance floor, choose products that offer both hold and reflective shine. Start your style with a Smoothing Creme plus a directional blow-dry to smooth as you protect the hair.

Step 2: Add Control

Say goodbye to unruly baby hairs with Hydrating Oil for a luminous finish. And tame flyaways effortlessly with a flexible Light Hold Hairspray, ensuring a polished look without any stray hairs.

Step 3: Select the Perfect Brush

The right brush is essential for achieving a flawless finish. Reach for a boar bristle brush to effortlessly guide your strands into place, leaving you with a smooth and sleek result.

Step 4: Brush with Precision

Attention to detail is key. Section your hair and brush it towards the nape or crown of the head where you’ll secure your ponytail. Brush with purpose towards your desired placement, ensuring a refined and intentional look.

Step 5: Prevent Neck Sag

Avoid the dreaded neck sag by tilting your chin upward as you fasten your elastic and bobby pins. This plus another touch of Light Hold Hairspray will secure your bun firmly in place with confidence so you can feel the difference as you maintain a sleek and secure style all day long.
