This is what a ‘clean look’ bun looks like from behind. GETTY IMAGES.
Although the term clean look became popular to define a type of minimalist and very natural makeup, over time it has been expanded to also include hairstyles that avoid excesses and opt for an austere and “clean” aesthetic.
This is the case of the tight bun attached to the head that collects the hair at the back (either in the low, middle or high part) and generates a sophisticated and polished effect. It is a very comfortable hairstyle, which can be done at home in a few minutes, and which is very flattering both for everyday wear and for wearing on special occasions.
How to do a clean look hairstyle
In order for it to be well collected and smooth, in addition to getting the right tools and products, a series of steps must be followed:
First of all, it is recommended to untangle and comb the hair very well. Some even recommend smoothing it before making the bun. Afterwards, fixing gel or styling wax is applied to the upper half of the head. Once the chosen product has been correctly spread, the hair should be combed back and collected with a thin rubber band. The root area must be completely smooth, so it is recommended to use a special creping comb. The parting can be marked in the center or on one side and, once tied up, you can apply more fixing gel mixed with water. To make the bun, you can wrap the hair in the ponytail around itself and attach it to the rest of the hair with bobby pins. .
