Brigitte Bardot's Iconic Bun Hair Tutorial

Who is ready for some more vision further hair tutorials you guys know the fifties and early sixties beautiful dough is my absolute style icon. I adore her hair I love her clothing and you guys really seem to enjoy my projector dog hairstyles as well so today I wanted to highlight a particular hairstyle. That she wears a lot in her old photographs and that is this messy fluffy really airy type of bun. Which I personally think is so gorgeous so iconic attainable as well I guess because the beautiful thing about these hairstyles is that they are so easy to achieve,

So today I'm going to show you how to do this how to get the iconic bb up to. If you want to know how to do that then keep on watching before we get started. I just wanted to thank function of you for sponsoring today's video and tell you a little bit about them so as you may know I have been using the function of beauty hair care for a few months. Now they offer customizable hair care that is specifically tailored to your hair type issues goals. It's super easy there is a quiz on their website that takes about two minutes to fill in where you can input your hair type and your hair goals and your personalized preferences.

You can choose the color of your product and the scents and you can get your name printed on your bottles. So this is my current bottle of shampoo and conditioner I went with colorless this time and the lavender scent which is just incredible. My hair is so shiny so soft I can really tell a difference in the health of my hair and my hair has even gone a bit wavier you can't tell now. Because it's curled obviously but I've noticed and since I've been using these my hair has actually gotten wavier but what I wanted to tell you today is that functional beauty now also has body care which is so exciting. So then I also have body wash and body lotion.

I have two here there's also a little section of the quiz for body care so you can fill in the dryness of your skin and again your personal preferences. I chose the eucalyptus and mint scent for my products and I absolutely love these the body wash is super moisturizing doesn't leave your skin dry at all and the body lotion is this amazing texture. That I've never felt before in a body lotion it's really nice and hydrating but it's not greasy at all like it kind of just disappears into your skin. Which is so nice functional beauty products always come with stickers. By the way, so I decided to decorate my body products to kind of differentiate them from my hair products.

Because you know don't want to be putting body wash on your hair another thing. I really love about the function of beauty is they have been taking lots of steps towards becoming more sustainable. So they recently switched all of their packaging and their shipping packaging over to craft cardboard and they now use post-consumer recycled plastic for their bottles. Which is amazing you can follow my link in the description box to get twenty percent off of your first order with the function of beauty highly recommend them so thank you functional beauty for sponsoring this video and let's move on to the hair tutorial prejudice of course is famous for her very casual messy didn't put a lot of effort in looking hairstyles and I feel like with kind of messier looking at hairstyles like these it's best to kind of get the base down right and then kind of wing it from there and not overwork the hair.

Because to get the perfect messy look matter of fact casual hairstyle the best way is to just actually do your hair that way so for the base. I have curled my hair obviously I used red curls to do this so I just rolled my hair up in four strips of fabric. This time I did one curler on top one on the bottom on this side the same thing on the other side. So I had four curlers in my hair did that overnight and I used some setting lotion to set my curls and nowhere is my results and I really like this.

Because it's mostly straight up top and mostly curly on the bottom and that is a type of hairstyle that you can often see Richie wearing as well in her old photos. So I am going to just quickly brush this through I don't want to do that too much but I want to be able to work with this and kind of loosen up the curls a little bit and now the next the thing that is super important for anybody for doing hairstyle but also these updos of course are to get a lot of volume into the hair and mostly around the roots so backcombing is your best friend in this case and I'm definitely gonna do a lot of that so I'm gonna start actually in the front here and just start slowly backcombing my hair.

Now, most of her updos, or at least the earlier ones I'm not a huge fan of her kind of mid to late 60s hairstyles but I love the earlier ones and those are mostly done with a sensor parting. So I'm going to keep a center parting in my hair as well and that is why I am going to backcomb kind of um diagonal sections going straight back from my bangs. I'm just making my way down and I'm gonna be backcombing quite a lot because most of this disappears when you smooth it over anyway. So I'm gonna do that both sides okay and then the same thing at the back here this section on my crown gonna. Just so I quickly back on that as well and then don't be afraid to do some kind of big strokes of backcombing throughout the body of the hair as well so you could just take a section and then kind of do this give some volume to the hair all right.

So this is a pretty good base to work with I forgot to mention but of course. If overnight curls aren't your preferred method of curling your hair then you can just use a curling iron use a kind of small to medium size and just make some waves in your hair as long as your hair has a little bit of texture can even be natural. Then you're good to go but I would advise you to do something because it'll be easier to do the bun that way anyway I'm gonna just smooth over the top of my hair very gently with my comb. So that the top is at least a little bit shiny and not just pure frizz okay. next up we're going to build the bun and to do this I'm going to start just very simply and again we want to let a lot of this just happen as it happens.

You won't get the same hairstyle twice but when you look at her photos her bones are always a little bit different. So I am basically just going to grab all of my hair and pull it up like. That so it's kind of swept up from the back and slightly from the sides but the top is still in a center part. So I'm gonna leave it like that not mess with it too much and just tie it into a ponytail quite high up on my head right around my crown. There we go so straight away I am going to take some hair from the front side here right in front of my ears and I'm just gonna pull that out because that is definitely a part of her signature look. Just these two front curls and if your hair is not curly over here then you may want to go back in with a curling iron and just curl that really quickly.

 That's quite an important part of the style and the same thing in the back here just pull out some curls along the bottom of your ponytail but once you have that we're gonna do another kind of hairstyling by chance type of thing. I'm gonna just push this hair up kind of onto the elastic-like that I literally just pushed it up with my hand and I'm going to take some good bobby pins. Now and try to secure this exactly the way I'm holding it so I'm just going to stick in bobby pins. Wherever I feel like the hair is thicker or wherever I feel like there is an end that could use some securing. So make sure it stays up but try not to over pin this you definitely still want it to look light and airy and messy and you will lose. That look if you use too many bobby pins to secure.

This so once everything is up you can take a second mirror. Which is something I always like to do and just check what it looks like from the back. I'm quite happy with it um I do think this hair is a bit too much I don't need that much. So I'm just going to pin that up okay. I'm just going to go back and talk at the sides of this bun a little bit because I feel like my ponytail is maybe a bit too tight still again. We want to have a lot of air in the hair that is very typical also of Virginia hairstyles. There's a lot of kind of air in them so to achieve. That you want to just you know create a bit of room between your hair and your scalp so for the bangs. I'm going to try and slightly at least split those comb them to the sides to create a bit of a curtain bang-ish effect. Now if you like something that Regina does which I personally really like is to add some hair accessories so she sometimes used to wear flowers in her hair or ribbons or headbands bows.
