The incredibly sleek, high bun has a little secret tucked inside. Find out what gives that bun it’s volume and perfect shape!
Sebastian Professional lead stylist, Thomas Dunkin, explained the Alice + Olivia Spring 2012 fashion show hairstyles while working on a model’s bun backstage. Kim Kardashian is clearly on trend, wearing the same hairstyle at the Style 360 Presents Abbey Dawn by Avril Lavigne Fashion Show. Learn the insider tip that will get you the look, even if you don’t have piles of hair like Kim!
As you can see in the inset photo that I took backstage, a foam donut-like circle is used to add height and shape to the bun!
Prep the hair with Sebastian Potion 9 Lite to give the strands a bit of texture. Pull it back into a tight ponytail and then carefully wind it around the donut it until the foam is no longer visible. Secure the bun with bobby pins. Spray the look with Sebastian Shaper Fierce to hold it in place!
With all the hair that Kim K has on her head, she might not need the donut, but if you want to add a little something extra to your look for a special evening out, just pick up the shaped foam at your local craft store!
