Can't choose between a bun and a braid? Katie Holmes couldn't seem to either at last night's Coach party on the High Line in New York, so she combined the two. Her hybrid style, which she adorned with two twists on either side of her head, is the perfect casual Summer style. And it's surprisingly easy to re-create at home with second-day hair.
- Start by misting your hands down with a hold hair spray, like L'Oréal Elnett Satin Strong Hold Spray ($15), for extra grip. Then, twist a two-inch section above each ear toward the back of your head. Secure with bobby pins.
- Pull your hair into a ponytail at the middle of the back of your head, making sure to include the twisted sections. Secure with an elastic
- Braid your hair into two neat plaits, securing the ends with elastics. Wind each braid around the base of the ponytail, one at a time, and pin against your head. The bun shouldn't lay flat against your scalp.
- Finish with another mist of hair spray, and you're set.
