Bird’s Nest Bun: Tress Trend


Do you feel rushed when it comes to your morning beauty routine? Take the fuss out of styling by wearing a bird’s nest bun.

Blond babes like Kate Hudson, Gwen Stefani and Jennifer Lopez have all donned loose, twirly topknots. Elsewhere, big, messy buns ruled the fall runways of Chanel and Zang Toi. And Stylelist network blogger Beth Jones paid homage to casual Carrie Bradshaw-esque by recreating the classic updo.

Whether you’re in between blow-outs or taking a break from the flat iron, “Project Runway” celebrity stylist George Ortiz believes this is a wearable style suited for different face shapes and hair textures.

Follow these three steps to get this easy, yet elegant hairstyle at home:

1. Spritz hair with Cutler Volumizing Spray and blow dry using a flat brush, directing the root of hair toward the area where you want the bun to sit.

2. Gather strands into a ponytail at the crown of your head using an elastic holder or bungee cord.

3. Loosely twist hair into a bun and secure the knot with bobby pins, and set with a medium hold hairspray like Redken Quick Dry 18.

Final pro tip: leave a few wisps along the hairline out for a fresh finish or apply a little Cutler Fly-Away Control onto a toothbrush and smooth the hairline back to create a sleeker look.
