Model off duty: Rock the low stakes bun

Whether you're taking a break in between runway shows at Fashion Week, or popping out to pick up your dry cleaning, there's no reason you can't rock a model-worthy hairstyle while out and about. Try this easy maintenance low bun for a go-to practical hairstyle for the busy modern woman.

Points for the low bun

Why is a low bun a practical and chic hairstyle? Not only does it keep the hair away from the face, but it groups the lengths of the hair together and shows off the different colors, emphasizing golden ombre ends or honey highlights, for example. Plus, as opposed to a high bun where sections at the back often come loose and slip out, in a low bun all the hair stays neatly tied.

No elastic? No panic!

It's happened to the best of us: suddenly the need arises to tie up our hair – on a windy day, for example – but the crucial tool, a hair elastic, is nowhere to be found. Do you have a hair grip? There's your solution! Simply twist the hair around itself so that it coils naturally into a low bun, then clip the ends to the head. A few flyaways will give it a more relaxed vibe, so don't worry if it isn't perfect.

Natural finish, long-lasting hold

Ensure you can get on with your day without having to restyle your hair by applying the right styling product. A hairspray such as Natural Finish from Tecni.ART will give hair reliable long-lasting hold with a lightweight and natural feel. Apply to towel-dried hair before blow-drying for added texture, or onto dry hair for a subtle burst of shine and hold.

Now you know, as long as you've got a hair grip in your purse, you don't have to worry about working a chic hairstyle inspired by off-duty models!
