Step 1

Start off with a few loose curls in your hair then gather it all where you want your bun to be, here I’ve done it on the side. When pulling your hair through the elastic don’t completely pull through the last loop, leave half of the hair looped with the ends out like pictured above.

Step 2

Using long wide pins start spreading the curls and loosely pinning into place, make sure the pin is secure by sliding it right through into the ponytail elastic.

Step 3

Keep spreading and pinning all the hair until it starts to look like a tousled bun, don’t pin tightly – keep it loose and soft so the bun stays full.
