How To: Honeymoon Hair

What’s a girl to do when the wedding is over and the glam squad wasn’t invited on the honeymoon? Caralee Pridemore, Sam Villa ambassador and founder of Sweetly Pinned (@caraleestyles), has it covered: a low twisted bun perfect for poolside and an exciting evening out. See it here

“This is an easy style that anyone can create with minimal tools and products. It’s simple yet it will elevate their look for their honeymoon to make them feel special,” says Pridemore. 

Low Twisted Bun 

  1. Apply a volume foam to dry hair and blow dry with a Sam Villa Light Ionic Professional Hair Dryer to create texture and grip. If at the pool or freshly showered, add a conditioner and/or oil to create the same look with a glossy finish.  |
  2. Create a ponytail and split it into two sections. 
  3. Wrap the left section over the right section and twist both together all the way down, leaving a few of the ends out. 
  4. Pinch and pull the twist apart for more volume. 
  5. Wrap the twist around the base of the ponytail and secure with mega-grip bobby pins. 
  6. Pinch and pull it again to create a pretty shape.
