How to Achieve the Slick Bun Look
BY GEORGIA ROSE
My favourite hairstyle of all is having a real moment.
15 JAN - 2023
While the slicked-back bun has always been my go-to, the hair style is having a serious moment ahead of summer.
It requires little hair tools, and is super low maintenance during the day, while still appearing stylish. Perfect for nights out, bad hair days and the humid season it’s so versatile and chic.
A few important things before you go slicking back..
- Hair Ties make a difference. You might not know it, but hair ties can cause a lot of damage on the hair, especially when pulling tightly. It’s best to avoid anything with high-grip, rubber band texture. Opt for small scrunchy-like hair ties or a soft band (we suggest some below)
- A little product goes a long way. There’s no need to overdo it on the hair gel, unless you’re looking for the ‘wet’ look too. Start small and work the product into the hair before it dries, adding a little more in places that need it.
- For a bit of shine, opt for a styling creme over a traditional gel or pomade. Finish with a little hairspray to hold everything into place.
- Not all products work for all hair types. If you can, head into your local beauty store and feel a few different formulas. Thin hair will better react with lighter formulations, whereas thicker hair will be able to take thicker pomades.
