Get ready to bloom this spring with the Rose Bun, the latest hair trend that is set to take the beauty world by storm. This elegant updo was spotted on fashion week runways, where hairstylists gave a twist to the classic chignon and turned it into a beautiful rosebud or full bloom with layers of "petals."

What's great about this hairstyle is that it can be tailored to suit your hair type and personal style. Whether you have straight, wavy, curly or coiled locks, you can easily create this floral design with some simple steps. According to celebrity hairstylist Lacy Redway, each bun should take its own personalized form just like flowers. To achieve the perfect Rose Bun, start by prepping your hair with heat protectant and mousse for maximum hold and control. Section out a diagonal piece of hair at the hairline if you want to create the "stem," or slick your hair completely back for a stem-free look.

Next, give yourself a fresh blowout for a sleek finish, or use gel if you prefer to keep your natural texture. Section off the ponytail into four parts and wrap each section with a thin transparent hair net to keep strands in place. Then, form one section into a "figure 8" shape and wrap each piece in place after wrapping completely before repeating the same motion around that middle section like layers of a cinnamon bun. Once you have created your bun, spray the diagonal section of hair left out of the ponytail with hairspray before weaving it in an "S" pattern from the hairline towards the rose bun and securing it with bobby pins. The Rose Bun is not just any messy bun; set aside at least 30 minutes along with these products and tools, including the blow dryer, clear or black elastic hair ties, transparent hair net, and hairspray.

This new hairstyle is versatile enough for various occasions whether you're attending a wedding or going out for brunch with friends. It's sexy yet dramatic as described by celebrity hairstylist Jimmy Paul who recommends this sleekness as an elevated look from regular pulled-back hairstyles. Get ready to embrace this season's most elegant trend with Rose Buns!
