Items needed: A ponytail holder and styling product(s).
Instructions for Ponytails:
Step 1: Wet your hair.
Step 2: Apply a little gel or a leave-in.
Step 3: Lightly brush towards the base of your head and use a cloth ponytail holder to hold it back.
Step 4: Take a scarf and place around the hairline to keep the hair closer to the scalp. (If I skipped this step, it’ll look like I have a big hammerhead – lol)and you have a ponytail.
Instructions for Buns
Step 1: Put the hair into a ponytail the the directions above.
Step 2: Then put one braid in to stretch the hair for a fuller bun.
Step 3: After the braid dries, unravel and gently fingercomb.
Step 4: Fold (or roll) the hair under once or twice (once for a bigger bun, twice for a smaller bun) with two bobby pins and you have a bun!
Another way to make a bun is to make a “sock bun”:
Step 1: Use one clean sock and cut the toe part off the toe.
Step 2: Roll the sock into a shape of a doughnut.
Step 3: Put your hair into a ponytail.
Step 4: Pull the ponytail through the hole of the doughnut sock. It should be located at the top of the ponytail.
Step 5: Then take sections of the ponytail and split it in all directions so that your hair covers the entire doughnut sock and tuck and pin it under with bobby pins.
