Salon Secret

The online destination for all things hair.

The site showcases stylists’ professional expertise and promotes the latest industry innovations. Through smart, conversational content, Salon Secret brings stylists to their clients in a new way.

When it comes to easy, go-to hairstyles for any occasion, a hair bun is right at the top of our list. But what say we turn things up a notch? Like turning a simple style into a fun, and beautifully feminine ‘do that will never get old. As luck would have it, hair blogger Kavuli Nyali shares our vision – so much so that she’s got the look down to a step-by-step process that pretty much anyone can get right.


Follow the steps to fabulous:

1 Section off a fringe from the back of your hair.

2 Smooth and twist the remaining back section, pinning it into a side bun.

3 Apply Dark and Lovely Au Naturale Plaiting Pudding Cream to your hair to assist with styling.

4 Use flexi rods to add curls to small sections of hair.

5 Smooth down the sides using your plaiting cream.

6 Allow your hair to dry completely.

7 Unravel the flexi rods and style to your liking.


While we love a good tutorial, it’s always nice having someone else do your hair for you. Plus, a professional stylist will be able to advise on other styles to try. Enjoy!
