Hairstyle trend: Defy the bad hair day: With a sleek bun you can get through the day elegantly

Sometimes the hair doesn't work the way it should: unwanted kinks or waves, greasy roots or flatness spoil our look. Then we grab a hair tie, tie our hair into a bun that looks more like a bird's nest, or grab a hat to hide the unsightly hairstyle. It's hair-tearing. But there is a solution. One that defies every bad hair day. It's called Sleek Bun. What is that.

A sleek bun is a hairstyle in which the hair is styled into a sleek, elegant bun or bun. The term “sleek” means “smooth” or “supple”. The hairstyle aims to keep hair smooth and neat, with no flyaways. The hair trend has even been spotted on red carpets a few times and proves that sometimes less is more. Famous Sleek Bun wearers include reality TV icon and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Lopez and Hailey Bieber. The best thing about the look: The sleek bun works with any hair length and is particularly easy to create. Read how easy it is below.

First, the hair should be prepared. Washing is not necessary, on the contrary. The sleek bun works best when the hair is a little greasy at the roots. Because dry and sticky baby hair is a no-go with a sleek bun. It is enough to comb the hair carefully once so that there are no burrs or knots in the hair that will ruin the smooth look. Use hair oil on the ends to add shine to your mane. If you have frizzy hair, you should first use a flat iron.

Once you have prepped the hair, you can start making the sleek bun. Create a neat middle part and comb the hair back to the sides. A sleek bun brush or teasing brush is particularly suitable for this. The narrow shape is good for catching each strand and combing the hair back smoothly.

Gather the hair at the back of your head and pull it into a ponytail. Then secure it with an inconspicuous hair tie - ideally one that matches your hair color and is particularly thin. If you want to form your sleek bun into a bun, twist the ponytail around itself and secure the hair with pins. Complete.

To be on the safe side that no hair slips out of the strict, elegant braid and attracts attention, fix your hairstyle with hairspray. There are even special products for small, annoying baby hairs. They are reminiscent of mascara and allow you to fix fine hairs with a small brush and gel so that they don't fly around. You can also use a toothbrush with a little gel. So the next time you look in the mirror when you get up and notice that your hair isn't looking good today, don't despair - just create a sleek bun.
