How to Master the Pineapple Bun

how to master a bun


 Today is all about how to master the perfect pineapple bun. 

Yes, this is a thing! One of my most common questions has nothing to do with fitness and everything to do with this wacky bun on top of my head. If you’re a fit chick, you know that working out every day might help your body look bangin’ but on the flip side it leaves your hair looking whack. One of the reasons I cut my hair into a pixie a few years back was because it always used to look so dirty and messy from sweating. Sure, I used to put it up in a “messy bun” – but if I wanted to throw on a dress or head out to dinner with the hubs it looked just as the name says, MESSY!

So, I stepped back and reinvented the “bun” to look more elegant and put together. I seriously wear this hairstyle all the time. It takes all of 3 minutes to put up and the dirtier your hair the better.

There’s 5 easy steps to creating the bun and you likely have all of the materials already in your bathroom. The only thing I recommend picking up is a hair texturizer or volume spray. I use Living Proof Full Dry Volume. Let me tell you – it’s AMAZING!!! It’s also so great to spray in your hair after using a curling iron to create waves. The product leaves your hair looking like perfect volume beach waves.
