Ponytails and Buns

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.



  • Be careful when buying your ponytail holders. Make sure they are elastic all the way around and free from metal parts. Don’t wear this style too much and don’t wear it too tight. All of these issues may break your hair off and we don’t want that! :)
  • At night I always make sure to take it down and put a stocking cap on my head. If I’m not doing a conditioner wash, I just spray some water, put a little bit of moisturizer on it, brush back a little, and put it into another 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.
