How to create a sleek low bun at home!

Step #1

Whether you start with hair that is wet or dry, this look is achievable! This first step is to comb through your hair making sure all the knots and tangles are out. It’s important to do this because you want your hair to be sleek with no bumps. Brushing your hair helps in achieving that slick, sophisticated look.

Step #2

Pick your part. Do you want a deep side part or a classic center part? Once you have decided, use a fine-tooth comb to part your hair. Try to be precise as possible to ensure your part is even.

Step #3

After you have combed through and parted your hair, apply the hold products of your choice.   For a sleek look, it’s important to use products that will keep your hair in place. We recommend Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infussion Volumizing Soufflé Mouse because it provides a firm hold without the crunch. Regardless of your hair-hold preference being hairspray, mousse, or gel, make sure to apply the product evenly throughout your hair.

Step #4

After applying your product, use a boar-bristle brush to brush your hair down for a flat finish. It’s important to brush your hair in the same direction to help aid to the sleek look. Once you have all your hair moving in the same direction, take a hair tie and put your hair into a low ponytail.

Step #5

Now that your hair is slicked back into a low ponytail, take the ponytail and twist it. Twist your hair all the way down to until you reach the end of your tail. After twisting to the tail, take the twisted hair and wrap it around the top of your ponytail. Once your hair is fully wrapped around your ponytail, take bobby pins to secure the bun in place. Add some hairspray to prevent any stubborn fly-aways.
