Pointer: Create a Glam Hair Bun

When navigating the city from deskside to client meeting to launch event, a woman needs a ‘do that will stay put. At FPR we prefer a style that is sleek, sophisticated, professional and easy. We recruited the unofficial Queen of the bun, Julia McEwen, to share her secrets on looking fabulous, without too much fuss.
Thanks to this amazing hair contraption called “the hair doughnut” I can give myself a quick style that takes my hair off my face and neck — and it still looks like I’ve spent some quality time finessing the ‘do. Truth be told, it only takes two minutes from start to finish.
This mesh doughnut works for all hair types; fine, thick, coarse, curly or straight. It’s particularly great for thin haired gals because it gives the appearance of mega volume. Choose one that matches your hair colour and pick a size, they range from petite to xxx-large.
Here’s how to get the Oscar de la Renta, high chunky bun.
- Using a brush, pull hair back into a ponytail. You can wear it low, medium or at the crown of your head. The choice is up to you.
- Secure with an elastic.
- Thread your hair through the doughnut and bring it to the base on the ponytail.
- Cover the exposed mesh with your hair and use a bobby pin to secure the look.
