Beauty Blitz's Fresh Ideas For Summer Bun Styles

Twisted chignon

I subscribe to to Beauty Blitz's emails. Today's newsletter featured 9 hairstyles to help you stay cool this summer. I really loved all the ideas and wanted to pass it along!

Get Diane Kruger's twisted bun with either air dried or blown out hair. For perfect frizz-free hold, try using Motions Extra Firm Hold Foaming Wrap Lotion ($3.99) before twisting hair back into a chignon.

Blake Lively's sleek ponytail. Smooth hair back with Redken Hardwear 16 Super Strong Gel ($16.45) for unruly types or Aveeno Soft Hold Gel-Creme ($6.99) for a more moderate hold.

Zoe Saldana's middle part bun. After blowing out your hair, use L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray ($14.99) to add texture and hold for the loose chignon at the nape of your neck. Use Shu Uemura Art of Hair Cotton Uzu ($33) on your fingertips to twist the strands around your face.

To achieve Catherine Malandrino's side bun use Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray ($23) for texture and then part the hair to the side and create a lose braid, which you can wrap to the side.

Jessica Alba's braids. Before you pull your hair back, spend an extra five minutes braiding each side for a touch that’s more modern than milkmaid. For texture and hold, use a working spray like Oribe Superfine Hairspray ($29) to create your plaits. I love doing this look especially when my bangs are growing out!

a.k.a the "blogger bun"
To achieve Olivia's bun add Shu Uemura Kaze Wave Foam ($33) to damp hair for texture and hold. After drying your hair, pull it back with your hands for a more casual look or use a brush if you want it a little more polished. Secure with an elastic at the crown and wrap the hair in a bun using Oribe Soft Lacquer Hairspray ($42) for shine and hold. Secure with bobby pins.

Hope these suggestions help! Do you have any to add?
