Jennifer Morrison's Winning Bun

You know how to throw your hair up in a messy bun on the way to the gym or the beach, but what about when you want that laissez-faire attitude to go with a cocktail dress? We’ve never seen a better example of the polished messy bun than the one Once Upon A Time star Jennifer Morrison sported at the Toronto Film Festival.

Hair stylist Ryan Trygstad worked Oribe’s Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse ($35) into Morrison’s hair before blowing it dry. “Once the hair was completely dry, I layered Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray ($20) at the root,” he says. “It adds great texture and modality to hair that is being put up in an up-do.”

Trygstad secured a super high pony at the top of Morrison’s head: “more forward than you would think,” he says. Then he rolled the hair around the elastic, keeping it loose and “messy and sexy,” securing the bun with large French bobby pins. He finished with White Sands Infinity Fishing Spray ($21) to hold it in place without eliminating the flyaways that give the final look its covetable texture. Don’t be afraid to pull pieces out of the top of the bun or around your face. And hey, if you want to wear it to the gym, we won’t stop you!
