Model Off Duty: How to Rock the Low Stakes Bun

Just think of it as an extra-chic messy bun.

Whether you're taking a break in-between runway shows at Fashion Week or popping out to pick up your dry cleaning, there's no reason why you can't rock a model-worthy hairstyle. Ready to emulate the style of some of your all-time favorite models? Try this super simple low bun for a go-to practical hairstyle.

Why Wear a Low Bun?

Why is the low bun so practical and chic? Not only does it keep the hair away from the face, but it groups the lengths of the hair together and shows off the different colors, emphasizing golden ombré ends or honey highlights, for example. Plus, as opposed to a high bun where sections at the back often come loose and slip out, the low bun keeps all of your hair neatly tied.

No Elastic? No Worries!

It's happened to the best of us: suddenly the need arises to tie up our hair – on a windy day, for example – but the crucial tool, a hair elastic, is nowhere to be found. Do you have a hair grip? If not, here's your solution! Simply twist the hair around itself so that it coils naturally into a low bun, then clip the ends to the head. A few flyaways will give it a more relaxed vibe, so don't worry if it isn't perfect.

Natural Finish, Long-Lasting Hold

Ensure that you can get on with your day without having to restyle your hair by applying the right styling product. A hairspray such as Infinium 3 from Tecni.ART will give hair reliable long-lasting hold with a lightweight and natural feel. Apply to towel-dried hair before blow-drying for added texture, or onto dry hair for a subtle burst of shine.

Who knew looking like a model off-duty could be so simple? Simply stock your purse with hair grips and you'll be well on your way to modeling your best hairstyle wherever you go.
