How to Perfect the Messy Low Bun

evo shows us how to create the perfect low messy bun in a flash.

Created for the C/MEO 2016 Resort collection showcased at this year’s Sydney Fashion Week, Lauren McCowan for evo created chic up-do’s that were naturally textured yet super chic. We’ve dubbed them the perfect winter do and have all the steps to recreate it at home.

With the (C/MEO) collection being an abstract take on classics, we decided there was no more classic hair-do than a bun, so we worked to deconstruct the traditional bun in a way that was worthy of the catwalk but still modern and wearable. The end result was slightly dishevelled but completely wearable look created with the magic of evo styling products.
