The Instyle Awards went down on Monday and we still can’t get over Zendaya’s entire look. It’s no surprise since she was styled by the honoree of the night, Law Roach. Zendaya paired a Givenchy Haute Couture original with Louboutins and a sleek wet bun.



It’s the bun that we absolutely love because it ties the whole look together so effortlessly. While Zendaya showed off the updo on the red carpet, what’s great about it is that it’s wearable anywhere and for any occasion. So if you love her sleek bun as much as we do, then read on to find out how to perfect it for yourself!


In order to recreate Z’s hair, start off with already wet hair and thoroughly apply a leave-in hair treatment like a hair mask all over. Using a heavy conditioning product like this will help weigh your hair down for that sleek finish.


With your hair moisturized from root to end, follow up with a gel and curl definer to help set and smooth down your hair. Pairing the gel with a curl definer will give it that just-stepped-out-the-shower finish.


Do a deep side part and using a bristle brush, brush the top part of your hair away from your face first before brushing it to the side. Collect all of your hair into a low ponytail and use bobby pins and more hair ties to create the bun in the back.


Tie your hair in a hair wrap to set it and let it dry. Once it’s dried, you can carefully untie the wrap and get ready to slay the updo!
