BCBG Fashion Week Hair Messy Bun Tutorial

How-To: BCBG's NYFW Quirky Ballerina Bun

Harry Josh created these whimsical buns for BCBG's Fall 2010 show. They were inspired by "the models themselves, who would come into casting and quickly pull their hair back into a bun. I really wanted to create a look that a woman wearing BCBG would sport herself."

Keep reading for the how-to. . .To create the style, Harry began by applying John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE® Take Charge® Curl-Boosting Mousse ($15.99) to already-dry hair, then blew it out some more, using his fingers instead of a brush to separate and create texture. Once he'd re-dryed, he secured the models' hair in a low ponytail and added John Frieda Root Awakening Strength Restoring Smoothing Lotion to their ends. (This product isn't available in Australia, so try John Frieda FRIZZ-EASE® Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme ($16.99) instead.) He then wrapped the pony into a twisted bun, leaving the tips of the hair sticking out in a chic fringe that, Harry says, "really completed the look and made this low, classic bun a modern style."
