Trending fall hair styles include one of my favorite looks – the bun. Top knots, loose and messy, or sleek and slicked back, variations on the bun were seen at most major fall shows from Gaultier, to Prada and Cavalli, to DVF.
Personally, I love the bun, not only because it looks so chic, but also because it’s so easy. In fact, when I am writing, I’ve been known to simply tie my long hair in a knot and skewer it with a pencil! While I’m not advocating that look for anywhere outside your cubicle, a more traditional bun is a versatile, elegant look that pairs beautifully with new fall fashions.
So, how best to achieve the look?
I’ve started using Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Light for just the right amount of hold. Earlier this year, I was introduced to Framsi hairspray, which keeps my long waves under control when I wear it down. But, for a more structured style like a bun, I need a little more control.
Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Light is a styling and sculpting gel containing pearl protein. According to Looking fit.com, pearl protein (or hydrolyzed conchiolin protein) includes “powerful moisture binder properties for increased hydration and soft feel; forms moisture retentive film for smoothing and nourishing benefits.” This enhances hair’s texture and manageability, locking in volume, shine and bounce. It’s also alcohol-free and color safe, a major plus for me since I color my hair.
Hydro-Gel can be applied to damp hair for maximum control. However, I prefer to apply to dry hair, so I use it only where I need it (like those recalcitrant tendrils at my temples).
With Framesi BY Hydro-Gel Light, creating the perfect bun is easy… no pencil required! Retail $11.99
