Finally, a trendy ‘do that the average woman can successfully recreate- no degree in cosmetology or hairstyling prowess required.

The “Party Bun” has announced its presence in pop culture with tons of celebs and everyday fashionistas alike sporting the sloppy chic updo.  The beauty of this style is its simplicity; it’s a glorified (and much cooler looking) ballerina bun.  All that’s needed is a tease comb, hair tie, a spritz of hairspray and a properly functioning hand.

Long suffering ladies battling frizz and dryness, rejoice. You have the ideal hair type to make this style really pop. The rougher your hair’s texture, the better.

Here’s how to do your own “Party Bun” in five easy steps:

Step 1: Pull hair into a very high ponytail and secure with a hair tie. The higher the ponytail, the edgier the look.

Step 2: Fidget with the ponytail and hairline a bit. Don’t dishevel the hair, just allow the tie to loosen enough to let those “baby” hairs lay on the face.

Step 3: Using a tease comb, tease the ponytail until it’s large and crazy looking. Yes, crazy looking should be the goal. The fuller the ponytail is teased, the fuller the bun will be.

Step 4: Wrap the ponytail around into a loose bun and secure with bobby pins. Be patient- this simple technique can take a few tries to perfect. Use a little hairspray and voila! You have a simple and stylish look that’s appropriate for a variety of occasions.

“The party bun is fantastic because every women is capable of teasing a ponytail and using a few bobby pins,” says Lakeland hair stylist Michael Rose. “It’s a cool and edgy look, but also very classic and elegant.”
