In honor of Earth Week, we’re featuring our favorite eco-friendly products in all our beauty posts! First up, here’s the “green” way to get Christina Milian’s sexy style.
If you’re wondering what to do with your hair when the weather heats up, then Christina Milian has the answer. The smiley mami showed off a sky-high bun on a particularly warm April day in LA yesterday—and we plan to copy her all summer long!
To get the look:
-If your hair is naturally curly (like Christina’s), brush it back into a tight ponytail at the top of your head while it’s still wet, which will keep it straight. Or if you are doing this style when your hair is dry, smooth a shine serum (like eco-friendly Pureology Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher, $21, sleekhair.com) over your hair once it’s in the ponytail to make it slick.
-Now, twist the hair and wrap it around the base of the ponytail, then secure with a few bobby pins.
Secret styling secret: If your bun looks too dinky, try using a bun shaper—make your own version by filling a panty hose with a little pillow stuffing. Secure the ring at the base of your ponytail, then fold your hair over it for an instantly perfect bun!
