The front bun is definitely a hairstyle with art appeal. Restraint is cast aside and the glam factor is worn high on the head.
While the fabulous unicorn chignon is styled very sleek and neat, the ends are permitted to peek out of the hair knot highlight somewhat messy and undone.
A striking shade of lipstick (such as a rich berry hue) highlights the fancy front look!

What you need for the front bun:

How it’s done:
1. Spray some heat protectant into the hair and work it strand by strand with the straightening iron.
2. Toss the hair over your head and use a hairbrush to bring it straight forward.
3. Gather the sleek hair at the front crest and tie it into a ponytail with the hair elastic. Make sure that the top layer of hair is close to the head – smooth it down with some hair gel if necessary.
4. Tie the ponytail into a knot and secure the front bun with hair pins. Slightly pluck out the hair ends.
5. Apply a generous amount of hairspray to the style and you are done!
