BUN AND DONE!
Your workout clothes are chic enough to wear all day. Your go-to gym hairstyle will be too with this do.
Skip the brush. “Use your hands to pull your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head,” says Matt Fugate, a consulting hairstylist for Kerastase. “This keeps some texture in your hair, which looks cool and helps hide sweat.” If your hair appears more oily than sexy, spritz a powder volumizer, like Kerastase V.I.P. Volume in Powder Spray (prices vary, www. ebay.com), onto the roots to soak up moisture and add lift. Then redo the ponytail.
Work on your body. Mist the ponytail with a texture spray, like AG Hair Cosmetics Beach Bomb Tousled Texture (US$24 or S$39.60, www. amazon.com), then run your fingers up the hair to gently tease it. Ruffling it a bit adds volume, which will make your bun bigger, Matt explains. Now wrap the hair around the base of the pony.
Stick the landing. A few bobby pins slipped into the bun will hold it securely. “But I also allow some strands to fall out. The look seems more effortless that way,” Matt says. To make sure those pieces don’t get frizzy, spray a bit of dry oil, like Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Zero Smoothing Light Spray (prices vary, www.ebay.com), into your palms, then run them over the errant tendrils.
