7 Steps To A Chic Bun


chic-bun

chic-bunFor the Urban Zen Fall/Winter 2016 The Alchemist Collection, stylist Jorge Luis, for L’anza Healing Haircare, created loosely pinned topknots with strands casually escaping down the back of the neck.

 

“My inspiration was the nomadic spirit of the desert, with hair that looks naturally healthy and beautiful but with a unique kind of raw, simple texture that has each strand flowing randomly,” says Luis. “In fact, the style evolved from the idea of this organic, windblown hair, and that raw texture was the focal point of the look.”

chic-bunHere’s the how-to…

>>1  Mix a good-sized amount of L’anza Keratin Healing Oil Dry Texture Spray with a small amount of hair oil in palms, and apply to almost-dry hair to create texture, hold and keep it soft.

>>2  Work deep under hair and at roots, starting at the back, massaging in with tip of fingers.

>>3  Rough-dry product into hair using blow-dryer aimed in random directions to set the product in (repeat the process for fine-textured hair).

>>4  Randomly draw up the hair and create a ponytail at the crown. Take medium sections, tease the hair and spray teased sections with the dry texture spray used before.

>>6  Tweak and pinch surface of hair with fingers around the front, then more lightly on rest of hair. This gives hold with an interesting “raw” texture with a healthy shine.

>>7  Finish the look with a diffuse misting of L’anza Color Illuminator Hair Brightening Spray to intensify and refresh hair color and to brighten the hair under the lights.
