“This is a super easy hack to a full bun that’s perfect for the holiday season,” explains Ellen Devine (@Ellendevinehair), Sam Villa ArTeam and master stylist at Lunatic Fringe. See the video here.
- Add body to the hair using a Sam Villa Artist Series 2-in-1 Marcel Iron and Wand. Detach the spoon to make it a wand and wrap the hair around it in large sections.
- Separate the hair left to right. Using the Sam Villa Artist Series Finishing Brush, smooth one side of the hair into a high ponytail, making a loop and leaving the ends out. Repeat on opposite side.
- Take the two buns and cross one over the other and pull through, then secure with a bobby pin. Tip: secure right where your hand is holding the hair in place for the best security.
- Take the tails that are left out, wrap up, and secure. Spray with hairspray and adjust using a tail comb. Pull out a few extra pieces for framing around the face.
