It's finally party season and we're more than ready to start the hunt for the perfect new frock and get experimental with our style. No other season gives you full reign to master a new makeup look or hairstyle and one we've been dying to perfect is the Undone Bun. The A list have been loving this look lately and now we're ready to claim it for our own.

Some things are reserved for the rich and famous, but looking fabulous and groomed is not one of them. We can all look A list worthy, all it takes is a little learning. This party season we're desperate to start rocking the undone bun and for plenty of reasons too.

Not only is the undone bun chic and sophisticated, it suits all face shapes and can tie together any outfit to look completely photo ready. Best of all you can throw this look together in about 20 minutes if not less. No wonder we're getting obsessed with this style.

To find out how to master the look, we teamed up with blow LTD, the experts in fast beauty, t​o get their stylist approved tips on how to create the messy chignon fast.

You'll need:

Sea salt hair spray
Volumizing hair spray
Clear hairbands x 2
Hair grips x 10

How to do an undone bun:

1. Prep the hair with salt spray for texture and apply a volumiser spray at the roots for lift.

2. Blow dry the product into your hair and twist the ends. You want to create lots of texture to make it more manageable to style.

3. Take a diamond section of hair from the crown and backcomb it gently.

​4. Make two pony tail sections at the nape and at the back of the head.

5. Tie the pony tails together in a knot.

6. ​Tuck the ends in and pin to create a messy bun.

7. Loosen gently and set with some hairspray.
