    Here’s how Orlando Pita created this look for the Carolina Herrera show, and how you can do it in the salon for a deserving bride.

    1. Spray T3 360° Plump onto hair, massaging it into strands from root to tip and blow-dry. 
    2. Take large sections of hair and create 8-10 curls at the back.
    3. Pin them up and let them cool and set. Take the pins out, brush hair and fluff up with a comb for volume. Use the Bespoke Duality or PRO Mini.
    4. Using a pea-size amount of T3 360° Boost, smooth hair back with a natural side part and fasten into a low ponytail.
    5. Take a piece of hair from the bottom of the ponytail and wrap it around to hide the elastic band. 
    6. When you reach the end of the hair secure it with a pin through the ponytail.

    This modern bun can be done in five simple steps.  Here’s how:

    1. Blow-dry with T3 360° Plump
    2. Section by section, begin teasing entire head with a fine-tooth comb.
    3. Secure hair in high ponytail with elastic band and tease the ponytail to add volume and texture.
    4. Using ponytail, create bun by wrapping large sections of hair around elastic and using bobby pins to secure hair in place.
    5. Add an elastic colored headband for accent.

    Be sure to work a good volumizing spray into the strand before styling.
