For a sophisticated hairstyle that’s equally appropriate for the office or a cocktail party (or even a homecoming dance!), look no further than the twisted rope bun. This easy up-do is perfect for medium- to longer-length hair, and it’s a chic upgrade if you normally wear your hair in a bun, topknot or ponytail. Plus, it’ll take you less than 10 minutes to pull together!
First, use Pantene Smooth & Sleek 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner to cleanse and prevent frizz. Follow up by spraying Pantene Volume Root Lifting Spray Gel while your hair is still damp, focusing on the roots – the instant lift and boost in volume will make this style easier to achieve. Blow-dry hair before styling.
Leaving the quarter front section of your hair loose, gather the rest of your hair into a ponytail with an elastic band. You can position this ponytail low, in the middle or on top of your head, depending on where you prefer it as well as the length of your hair. Give the front section a generous spritz of Pantene Airspray Flexible Hold Hairspray to prevent flyaways.
Gently tease the front sections at the root with a small comb or hairbrush.
Slide a hair doughnut up the length of the ponytail. This inexpensive accessory will help keep your bun in place and take your style from day to night without letting a hair slip out of place.
Hold the ponytail as you wrap hair around the doughnut, creating a bun. Secure with an elastic hair band.
Bring back the loose section from the front of your hair so the ends lay over the bun. Twist the ends, and then wrap them around the outside of the bun to completely cover the elastic bands. Secure with bobby pins. Finish off the look with a spritz of Pantene Airspray Flexible Hold Hairspray.
