the top bun has become this girl’s new best friend. on dirty hair days, or when i want to look a little different with big earrings, i sport this look and get lots of compliments. here are the steps i use to make my perfect top bun. i’m sure everyone does it differently, but this technique looks cute and lasts all day.
step one: take the front section of your hair (everything on the top of your head that’ll be in front of the bun) and tease 1-inch sections. i do this to add some volume at the front so it isn’t a tight, pulled back look. once you’ve teased to your liking, gently brush it back so it’s smooth with a little bit of volume.
step two: use a regular hairtie to create a super high ponytail.
step three: randomly tease the ponytail hair and gently brush it so it’s somewhat together.
step four: twist the hair to form a bun on top of your head. make sure the ponytail is twisted all the way around and use lots of bobby pins to secure it in place. use hairspray for extra hold.
because of the quick teasing i do, this hairstyle will last from morning until bedtime.
