How-To: The Big Bun
Buns. They're simple, elegant and ideal for every special occasion.

Big buns are everywhere this season, and they're the ideal go-to look for special occasions.

In minutes, this sleek, polished style can come together, so whether you're doing in on a client or teaching her to do it to herself, follow this quick tutorial from Geneva Cowen for Sam Villa.

1. Gather hair into a ponytail in the center top section of the head. Begin at the back, brush section by section into hands to smooth and secure with a bungee.

2. Brush hair in the ponytail thoroughly from the back towards the front of the fringe area.

3. Wrap the length of the ponytail around the bungee with the ends facing towards the back and tuck them into the bun. Use large hairpins to secure the shape by pinning directly into the bungee close to the scalp.

4. Finish with Redken control addict 28 for hold.
