Live from New York….It’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! TMG has all the scoop on the latest in beauty trends from the runways, giving you a heads-up on what’s hot for the spring!
The always fabulous Ted Gibson shared the secret that the top hairstyle for the spring is….drum roll, please…the bun!! Here we have ANOTHER unstructured bun (we think this is a really relate-able runway/realway trend to watch!)
What could be a better hairstyle for spring? Simple, chic, and easy to do at home, this look definitely translates perfectly from the runways to the streets and we’ve got the scoop on how you can get the look too!
At Vena Cava, Ted was inspired by 1970′s Halston, creating a chic woman, wearing a classic bun, but modernized with texture.
Using Ted Gibson Built It Blowdrying Spray, Ted and his team blew out each of the models’ hair and then flat-ironed it straight after working in Ted Gibson Tame It Shine Lotion, to give the hair a sleek appearance and healthy shine.
The hair was then slicked back into a sleek ponytail, which was separated into 1-2 inch vertical sections (depending on the length of the model’s hair) with elastic bands, which were, “meant to show” as part of the modernization of the bun.
The ponytail was then twisted the same way you’d twist the hair to create a classic bun, and was then secured with bobby pins all around the outside of the bun, which Ted says, “are also okay to show”. Although a few pieces were already sticking out, Ted “finished” the bun by texturizing the center of it with his fingers, and securing the look with a spritz of Ted Gibson Beautiful Hold Hairspray.
To complete the look, a scarf (approximately 20-24 inches long, can vary) was then wrapped around the head. Starting underneath the bun, Ted placed the center of the scarf under the bun and then wrapped it around the top of the head, crisscrossing at the top. The loose ends were then twisted downward, and pinned underneath each side of the bun to hold it into place.
And voila, possibly the simplest way to have chic hair for spring!
