Buro 24/7 Trends: The bun by Guido Palau
Expert tips to try at home
If recent outings by Rooney Mara plus models Suki Waterhouse, Poppy Delevingne and Lily Aldridge are anything to go by, your hair should be sporting a bun.
According to 'the world's most in-demand stylist' Guido Palau, the bun is where it's at to look your best.
Guido talks to Buro 24/7 about how to create the perfect bun, following the Dolce & Gabbana and Alberta Ferretti AW13 shows for this season.

"The bun is a cinematic image and it plays on enhancing the features and an inherent natural female beauty. Collectively, I was inspired by the iconic image of a woman with natural Italian charm, such as Sophia Loren..."
To create the look, apply spray mousse for volume, and dry with a hair dryer, before applying a quick spray of hairspray to the root. Create a bouffant by backcombing with a stiff bristle brush to give volume, then use the pins to secure.
"At the Alberta Ferretti show I used a lot of product so that the hair was not too soft, and the results were great." Says Guido. For this look in particular, Guido applied mousse to damp hair before gathering into a bun (in this case making the central parting visible) and as a finishing touch, a spray of hair spray Control Addict 28 was used to seal the style.
