We loved Julianne Hough’s chic modern bun and fresh layered zig-zag part at the 2015 American Music Awards. Riawna Capri, of Nine Zero One Salon, created the look using UNITE products—here’s how you can recreate it:
1) Start with dry straight hair. Create a deep angled V-shaped part. Brush that piece forward and smooth it down with UNITE TRICKY Spray Wax to keep the part clean of fly-aways.
2) Next, repeat the first step by creating another deep V, brushing that piece forward, and smooth down with UNITE TRICKY Spray Wax. Repeat this step until you have the desired size.
3) Next, tie all the hair from behind your ear into a ponytail (that way you don’t mess up the parting). Then, take each side that you had separated and add it back to the pony very carefully with an elastic, alternating from side to side–the trick is, you want to make sure to have all the hair brushed forward to disguise any scalp lines. This is the key to NOT having it look like the 90s zig-zag part!
4) For the mini bun, loop the hair once, allowing the ends of the to come off to the right side in an upward 45 degree angle.
Once every thing is in place, lock it down! First, spray with UNITE SESSION-Max to make sure everything stays in place. Then follow with UNITE GLOSSING Spray to create a radiant shine.
