RUSK Artistic Director Gerard Caruso made the “messy, but not so messy bun”

It’s Fashion Week must-have at the Yoana Baraschi NYFW S/S 15 presentation. Here’s how he did it:

  1. Prep hair with the new RUSK Texture Spray.
  2. Place hair in high ponytail.
  3. Create loop, secure with band.
  4. Twist loop, secure base with pins.
  5. Finger tease and lock in with the new RUSK Freezing Spray.
 RUSK Texture ($18.00/8 oz.; Ulta): Offers instant volume and fullness by enhancing hair’s texture and shape. This multi-benefit spray maintains hair’s natural sway/movement and delivers a matte finish. Developed with Glycerin to provide optimum moisture balance to aid in styling. RUSK Freezing Spray ($19.00/10 oz.; Ulta): A quick-dry, humidity-resistant hairspray that offers all-day, extreme hold and definition without build-up while increasing hair’s body, suppleness and shine. Developed with a propellant that ensures dry application every time. for more information check out the RUSK web site
