For our current issue of Regard Magazine we did a fabulous cover editorial shoot with Roselyn Sanchez who is currently playing Carmen Luna in Lifetime’s summer hit show, Devious Maids. I had a fabulous time doing her hair and makeup for the shoot. I love making quick hair changes for each outfit and when she wore this gorgeous purple satin dress with the black lace detail in the back (by Rafael Cennamo), I knew it called for a sexy low bun.
Roselyn has super thick hair so the key to doing her bun are these super heavy duty hair pins that I use to hold it all together. Believe it or not, I used 4 pins for this look. Here is the step by step instructions and pictorial of how I achieved the look:
- 1 First, take a section from the front side and twist it towards the back.
- 2 Next, I take a section from the other front side and twist it towards the back and use a pin to secure both sections.
- 3 Then, I split the back in half and twist it into a semi bun and pin.
- 4 Finally, I take the other half of the back section and twist it around the semi bun to complete the bun and pin. I add another pin to stabalize the bun and Voila!!
This took about 3 minutes, and as you can see came out really nice.
