Finishing Touches: The "Zipper Technique"
The coolest hack Lauren showed us backstage was "the zipper," a technique where you almost make a mini french twist at the bottom of the bun. You pin the twist all the way down toward the neck to better secure hair back. "It keeps stray hairs from coming out," Lauren explained. To finish, Lauren spritzes the back with Tresemmé Extra Hold Hairspray ($5).
"Everyone has their own methods. Sometimes, I'll do this twist bun, or I'll do one big 'cinnamon bun' and wrap it with a braid," she said.
