The TikTok viral slick-back bun is a trending and effortlessly chic hairstyle that has taken social media by storm!

Let’s show you how to recreate it at home!


What you will need:

  • Comb or brush
  • Hair ties
  • Bobby pins (optional)
  • Mousse
  • Hairspray


Step 1:

Apply a small amount of product to your hair and roots. This will help to control flyaway’s and create the sleek look.

We recommend using ENHANCE Volumising Mousse as it enhances shine, is humidity resistant and has a lasting hold.

Step 2:

Using a comb or your fingers, create a straight part down the middle or side of your head, depending on your preference. Gather your hair towards the back of your head. Hold it firmly to keep it in place. Once you have all your hair pulled back and it's smooth and even, secure it with a hair tie. Make sure it's tight enough to hold your hair in place but not so tight that it's uncomfortable. Ensure hair is smooth and even.

Step 3:

Take the ponytail you've created and twist it into a bun. Wrap it around the base of the ponytail until you've formed a neat bun. Depending on your hair length and thickness, you may need to use bobby pins to secure any loose ends.

If you want extra hold and shine, you can use a light-hold hairspray to set the style in place.

We recommend using CONTROL Flexible Hairspray as it offers an all-day flexible hold and UV protection.
