The hair bun is a sta­ple for lots of rea­sons – it’s easy, looks chic at ev­ery age and can read­ily be tweaked to in­ject some fresh­ness. Case in point: the twisted take seen at the lat­est Carolina Her­rera run­way show (left). “This style works on most hair tex­tures that are shoul­der length or longer, and then you only need your fin­gers, a few pins and a bit of prod­uct,” says hair­styl­ist and R+CO am­bas­sador Bar­ney Martin.

Start with sea-salt spray on slightly dam damp hair, then blow-dry and use your finge fin­ger­tips to cre­ate a hap­haz­ard part.

O Once hair is dry, and with­out us­ing too much ten­sion, take a sec­tion on one side of the part and twist in­wards, from the front of the hair­line to the na nape of the neck, se­cur­ing with bobby pins as you go. (If your hair is lay­ered or tends to frizz, Martin sug­gests a lit­tle gel in the palms of the hands to help keep strands in place.)

“Then take the two twisted strands from ei­ther side and join to­gether, and con­tinue twist­ing around the cen­tre of the nape to cre­ate a bun,” ex­plains Martin. “Use your fin­ger­tips to en­hance the ‘per­fectly im­per­fect’ ef­fect – pinch the ends of the chignon to soften, gen­tly lift the roots on the crown to cre­ate a lit­tle height – and fin­ish with a fine mist of hair­spray to re­tain the tex­ture.”
