We all know that Halloween is coming, which means that you must prepare with two things – your costume and the party. If you are not sure about the costume for the Halloween party, you can always search for an inspiration at some classic book you love. And you can always make the character look scary if you add dark circles under the eyes or thin line of leaking red lipstick at the corner of the mouth.

So, if you want to achieve a retro look, you must start with the hair. I will show you how to create a retro bun, inspired by the Downton Abbey novel. It is actually a low bun, but it’s not as simple as it sounds. You have to follow the steps strictly, in order to get the perfect result. Here we go:

  • At the beginning, you must consider the texture of the hair. It must be straight, shiny and soft. The best way to achieve such a texture is to make a straightening hair mask and if the hair is too curly, you should work it with a flat iron. Use the flat iron if it is absolutely necessary and only after the hair is covered with thermal protector.

  • Then, brush the hair nicely, and divide it into three equal sections – left, right and middle.

  • Tie each section into a low ponytail.

  • Take the left pony and roll it outwards into a bun. Secure with bobby pins.

  • Then roll the same way the other two ponytails and secure them with bobby pins at the same level of the first one.

  • Spread the rolls a little bit in order to hide the bobby pins.

  • Then place a head band to bring the retro look even more. Choose the pattern of the hair band according to your outfit.

  • Done!
