It’s that time of year again when we start piling our hair up every which way and find new ways to make it look sexy and chic. The fact is, no matter where you are, hair piled up or pulled over to the side is so sexy when the temps go up, and shoulders and neck baring fashion is all the rage. If you like looking sexy in the summer, and who doesn’t, this one is easy, so super easy. This look is sexy because it is mussy and no fussy, and has a very hap hazard, neat but not kind of bun thrown off to the side. You can do this at home in LITERALLY a few minutes. One key is, the dirtier your hair, the easier it will be to knot up. Don’t do this on freshly washed hair, you will only frustrate yourself. UNLESS the hair is still wet, in the barely towel dried sense, the wetter or dirtier your hair, the easier it will be to fold exactly the way you want it to.
Step 1 – Pull all your hair to the side as if you are making a side ponytail. In fact, make a side ponytail. Secure the elastic low at the base of your neck but so that the pony swings down your front.
Step 2 – Bend your hair and loop it however you want, there are no rules here. You can roll it around your elastic, or twist it until it buckles. One method is to twist the pony in half upwards, and pin, the keep doing that until you have a loose loopy bun. Again, there is no ONE specific way to make this look work, you loop it however you want to get the look you are going for.
Beauty Trick – Spray your bobby pins before you secure your hair. This gives them extra traction and your loops will hold longer. Spray your hair after you have secured. Keep doing this. And no, it doesn’t matter how dirty your hair gets, it will be up so noone will notice.
Beauty Tip – don’t worry about neatness. Loose buns with strays is a very sexy look right now. You can pull that off in evening or day wear. Just pin it so it sticks with the look you are going for.
