THE LOW BUN – The trick to elevating a low bun is in the hair prep, not the pinning. Start with hair that’s mostly dry, then create loose waves with a medium-barrel tong. Apply quite a lot of dry shampoo and back-comb at the crown. Divide hair into three sections (sides and back), and tie the back into a low pony. Twist into a relaxed bun and pin. Next, gently sweep one section back and over the top of the bun, securing it underneath. Repeat on the other side. To finish, slide a clip onto hair at the temple.
