The classic bun gets an ingénue twist in this flirty look, and it’s easier to create than you’d think! Sleek roots and a matte finish balance the sweetness of the bow. Pair the style with a bright red lip and a come-hither pout for the perfect blend of naughty and nice. Click the style notes for step-by-step instructions. –– Laura Martin

Step: Prep dry 2nd-day hair with refinish to add grit and reduce shine; focus product on roots, then work through to ends.

Step: Pull all hair into a high ponytail and secure with a hair band. From the roots, bull hair partial through one section of the hairband creating a loop.

Step: Divide the loop in the middle and pull the ends up and over the band through the divide and secure around the base.

Step: Use fingers to expand and refine loops and pin into place with bobby pins.
