YOU’LL NEED: Hair bungee or hair elastic Donut bun padding Bobby pins Optional: Leave-in conditioner and hairspray STEP-BY-STEP Gather your hair into a high ponytail. Don’t use a brush. Instead use your fingertips to align your curls and smooth any bumps down. Secure your pony with a hair bungee or hair elastic. Pad out your bun. Use a hair donut around the base of your ponytail to create the perfect bun shape. Cover your donut. Tilt your head forward and fan out your hair over the donut. Then twist your hair around and tuck the ends under the donut. Pin in place with bobby pins and finish with a spritz of hairspray if you want extra hold.
