Red carpet-worthy hair doesn’t have to be a fuss. Thankfully, we met with the team at Nine Zero One Salon at the Colgate Optic White Beauty Bar where they showed us how to achieve this A-list look quickly and easily.

Watch the hairstyle tutorial:

1

Prep hair with dry shampoo

Run a dry shampoo all over your head to remove any excess oils and to make hair easier to manage. Make sure you're using one that's right for your hair type. We used Joico Instant Refresh Dry Shampoo.

2

Gather hair into a high ponytail

Smooth out any tangles or knots with a fine brush and tightly gather your hair into a high ponytail.

3

Secure with a ponytail hook

This look calls for more than your average elastic, so for a secure fit, tie your hair with a hooked ponytail holder.

4

Back comb

For amazing volume, back comb your ponytail and then smooth out the outer layers.

5

Separate into sections

Separate your ponytail into two large sections: front and back.

6

Roll the front section

Take the front section of your ponytail and roll it forward, letting the ends tuck under the bun and secure each side with bobby pins.

7

Repeat with back section

Just like the front, take the back section of your hair and roll it under so that the ends tuck underneath the bun. Again, make sure to secure with bobby pins.

Secure loose ends

In case any flyaways arise or any loose ends make it out of the bun, make sure to secure them by tucking them under with bobby pins.

Even it out

Use your fingers to very lightly pull apart the bun to hide any gaps and even out the style. Finish off the look with hairspray — we stayed brand consistent and used Joico Power Spray.
