Why does the middle part of your hair always disappear when you try to make a high bun? You see celebrities and influencers slaying that glossy slick bun with a middle part and keep thinking about how on earth they make it work. If you try brushing your hair back off the bat, your middle part will never (never!) stay in place, no matter the amount of gel that you use. We found this video by @jamievanslooten, an Instagram influencer, who shares an easy step-by-step guide on how to make your bun look like Nicole Richie’s.
Jamie, the author of this tutorial uses snap clips, however, if you have metal sectioning clips on hand, those will be best for a seamless outcome.
Use some get throughout the length of your ponytail to make the bun smooth and neat.
One of Jamie’s followers wonders: “Does it make it greasy / do you feel like you need to wash your hair the day after?”
Possibly using hair gel will require scheduling a hair wash the next day or the day after. Yet, a sleek bun is a great way to disguise your second-day hair while looking elegant and put together.
“It does look good on her, but I can only imagine myself with my extremely round face.” This is another comment we saw on this video.
While a slicked back look is not everyone’s cup of tea, you can wear the same hairstyle with some face-framing strands. If you have bangs or face-framing layers, you can leave those down and use some serum to make them smooth to suit the sleekness of the bun.
We hope you found this tutorial useful and will try it when it is the right time for you.
