I'm stealing this look from Kate Beckinsale, who's mastered it with gorgeous results. The textured bun is just as elegant as the more traditional slicked bun, but it's great for adding height and interest to petite features, and it's a lovely idea for a business hairstyle. To do it, start on dry hair. Using light hairspray, go section by section from the crown of the head forward, spritzing and then backcombing each, but leaving the very front section smooth. Let the front section of your hair cover the backcombed sections, and pull the sides of your hair in close. To help maintain the volume at the top, wind your hair up into a bun secured in the middle of the back of your head instead of at the nape.
