Tips on How to Rock a Big Oscar Bun
TREND: Big Buns
WHO'S WEARING IT: Mo'Nique, Nicole Richie, Sarah Jessica Parker
HOW TO WEAR IT: The key to pulling off the pulled back 'dos we saw at the Oscars is to keep it simple says Joseph Chase, hairstylist at the Argyle Salon & Spa. So that means no dramatic flowers like the Best Supporting actress winner—or a massive "overdone" SJP bun.
When copying the style at home, channel Nicole and start off with a smoothing serum for sleek shine. Once your hair is pulled back and set, don't forget the hairspray. It's important to choose a product that's workable to avoid that awful crunchy look. When Joseph was creating updos for Oscar parties yesterday, he used Oribe Superfine Hair Spray ($29), which he says creates a flawless finish.
