Hollywood’s busiest season has arrived! While most of the red carpet conversation has focused on gender equality, favorite fashion and hairstyles still keep social media chatter going. This year braids and buns adorned the stars for a modern take on classic style. You can be sure your clients will be turning to this timeless twist for their very own red carpet moments!

Recently featured on BehindTheChair.com, Rocky Vitelli’s romantic braided bun fuses the two chic styles for a modern look with flawless elegance.

How to create the romantic braided bun:

Step 1

Cleanse the hair with CHI Royal Treatment Volume Shampoo and condition with CHI Royal Treatment Volume Conditioner. Then, apply drops of CHI Royal Treatment Pearl Complex and blow-dry the hair.

Once the hair is dry, mix drops of Royal Treatment Pearl Complex with CHI Royal Treatment Brilliance Cream and apply on the hair for flexible hold and shine. Curl the hair with the DURA CHI 1-Inch Curling Iron, then finish with CHI Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray.

Step 2

Separate the crown area first, then section the sides and clip out of the way. Then, create a low side ponytail at the nape and finish with Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray.

Step 3

Next, create a 2-strand braid in one of the side sections from the front hairline to the ponytail in the nape area. Secure with pins, loosen the braid and finish with Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray.

Step 4

Then, add volume on the crown area by backcombing at the roots.

Step 5

On the other side, create a 2-strand braid again and attach this twist to the ponytail in the nape area. Spray some Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray to create a firm foundation.

Step 6

Divide the ponytail into three separate ponytails. Twist each pony, loosen them up a little bit and secure.

Step 7

Pin the twisted strands up into the ponytail and finish the look with Royal Treatment Ultimate Control Hairspray.

Step 8

Finished look
