Time for a Summer 2023 Summary! Here are some things we know to be true: Adidas Sambas were the It shoes of the summer, Barbie was the It movie of the summer and Sofia Richie was the It girl of the summer! It’s hard to deny the model’s influence, following her star-studded wedding in the South of France to Elliot Grainge. She’s blowing up and breaking the Internet, from magazine features to brand collaborations — just yesterday, she announced a partnership with David Yurman!
Known for her classic style and natural makeup, Richie has perfected the art of the slicked-back bun. And now we know her beauty secret behind the iconic look: it’s the Oribe Matte Waves Texture Lotion! The trendsetter took to TikTok to share the “really easy technique” behind her “lazy girl hairstyle” tutorial.
Keep scrolling to learn Richie’s sleek bun routine!
Here is Richie’s step-by-step sleek bun breakdown:
With wet hair, find a strong center part with a comb.
Brush your hair out, keeping the center part in place.
Apply a hair mask all over.
Take the front hair in front of ears and clip the right and left sections off.
Apply the Oribe Matte Waves Texture Lotion. (“I can pretty much do this hairstyle with any product, but for me, I need an Oribe lotion,” Richie said.)
Brush hair back and lock the ponytail in place with a hair tie.
Unclip the front pieces and brush them back, while applying the lotion to seal down any baby hairs. Richie said she’ll brush her hair “as tight as I can.”
Twist hair around the ponytail into a bun and tie it down.
Brush out any imperfections.
Go in with a pump of lotion to tame any flyaways.
Go in with an oil to graze hair for “extra sleek shine,” Richie said. “I think this honestly makes the difference.”
