We’ve been following singer and actress Rainie Yang closely ever since we saw her in dramas like Meteor Garden and Meteor Rain more than 20 years ago.
She’s always had a strong sense of style and is fond of both elegant and chic looks. These days, she’s rocking shoulder-length hair, which she usually has up in a bun.
Doesn’t she look great in her signature bun? One has to wonder though, how is she able to do it with such short hair?
Luckily for us, Rainie recently posted a tutorial on how to do her signature bun with short hair, and we’ve got all the details right here.
Step 1: Prepare your tools
You’re going to need two scrunchies for this, and make sure you pick the kind that don’t pull on your hair.
Other than that, you’re going to need a comb.
Bonus tip from Rainie: if you don’t have one, your hands will do; it’ll even look more natural that way.
Step 2: Grab the top part of your hair
The trick to Rainie’s signature bun is this: it’s actually two buns!
If you look closely from the back, you’ll be able to spot both, but from the front, it’ll look like a single bun.
So, part the top part of your hair. You can choose to part it from above your ear or higher up, depending on how you like it.
Comb your hair, but make sure to not hold it too tight, or else it’s going to look too flat and won’t look as nice.
Back to the tip earlier on using your hands as a comb – your hair likely won’t look flat if you choose this method and will look put together yet natural.
You can also opt to adjust your hair later after you’ve tied it up in the next step.
Step 3: Tie the top part of your hair
Now is the time to tie up the top part of your hair.
Once you’ve wrapped the scrunchie around your hair, you’re going to want to save the last loop and tuck your hair inwards and downwards as pictured.
This way, it’ll look like a single bun from the front. You can adjust your hair if it feels or looks too tight.
By the way, there’s no need to worry if you’ve got a lot of short baby hairs sticking out, as it’ll look more natural that way.
You could totally walk out without tying up the lower part of your hair, but we know that’s not what you’re looking for, so on to the next step!
Step 4: Grab and tie the lower part of your hair
Take hold of the remainder of hair that you’ve parted and form a ponytail with it in your hands. Then, you’re going to want to grab your second scrunchie.
Using the same step as earlier of saving the last loop of your scrunchie and tucking your hair in, create another hair bun.
You’ll end up with two buns on the back of your head, one on the top, and one on the bottom.
But if you’re only looking from the front, you’ll only see the top one.
What’s great about it is that it’s so practical and fits almost any occasion be it sports or a day out with friends.
Wasn’t it easier than it seemed? Now you too, can go out rocking Rainie’s look.
