BCBG Fashion Week Hair Messy Bun Tutorial 2010-02-12 08:00:00

Get BCBG's Quirky Ballerina Bun

Wondering what pretty new hairstyles have come out of Fashion Week's first few shows? Well, look no further, because at BCBG, stylist Harry Josh created these whimsically pretty buns inspired, he says, 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." Want the lowdown from Josh on how to get this look at home? Just keep reading.

To create the style, Harry began by applying John Frieda Frizz-Ease Take Charge Mousse ($6) 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 ($6.50) to their ends. 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."
