BUN AND DONE!

Shape (Singapore) - - Look Great News -

Your work­out clothes are chic enough to wear all day. Your go-to gym hair­style will be too with this do.

STEP 1

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.

STEP 2

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.

STEP 3

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.
