    Step 1: Take hair from crown, leaving some hair down at the sides and back, and secure in a ponytail at scalp.

    Step 2: With ponytail laying flat on head, pull up one side of the hair that was left down and wrap under the ponytail. With other hand, pull up the other side of the hair and wrap that also under the ponytail.

    Step 3: Twist the side sections of the hair under and around ponytail once or twice depending on length.

    Step 4: With the side sections of hair twisted and covering the spot where the ponytail holder is, brush hair in back to blend and smooth.

    Step 5: Place one hand under the blended hair to create a bun and tuck ends under. Secure with bobby pins. Quick Tip:  Don’t forget to make Xs with the bobby pins and use about 10 to 15 pins depending on the thickness of her hair.

    Step 6: Spritz with Donsuki Hairspray to secure style.
