    Prepping Your Wavy Hair

    Shake the TRESemmé Extra Hold Mousse well and apply 2-3 dollops into your damp hair. This mousse not only helps tame frizz but also provides the grip needed for your bun to hold. Scrunch your hair gently to enhance your natural waves and then use a diffuser to dry your hair, preserving the texture that will give your bun that desirable lived-in look.


    Sectioning and Ponytailing

    Next, create a center part to frame your face and section out a small piece of hair in front of each ear. These pieces will add a relaxed and stylish edge to your final look. Gather the rest of your hair into a high ponytail, ensuring you leave the front sections free. The height of the ponytail will determine the final position of your bun, so place it according to your preference.


    Creating the Bun

    Now, it's time to form the bun. Twist your ponytail loosely and wrap it around the base. Don't worry about it being too neat; the charm of a messy bun lies in its imperfections. Leave out a few strands for a more undone vibe and secure the bun with bobby pins. The key is to pin it in a way that feels secure yet maintains the bun's effortless appearance.


    The Finishing Touch

    Finish off with a spritz of TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray. This will lock in your look without sacrificing the bounce and movement of your waves. The result? A hairstyle that's as resilient as it is stylish, keeping you looking polished from morning to night.
