And here’s the good part, you won’t need the help of a celebrity hairstylist to achieve this sleek, defying look. To style your hair, all you’ll need are four hair bands, a comb, a hairbrush, and your favorite hairspray.
- To start, brush out your hair and ensure that it is free of knots. Try to make your hair as smooth as possible.
- Spritz your hair with water. Then, use a styling comb to create your center part by running the handle down the middle. Once you have achieved your middle part, flatten your hair with the comb.
- With two hair ties, pull your hair back into a ponytail at the base of your head to form a low pony. After that, use a brush to smooth out the top of the ponytail.
- Take hold of the ponytail and twist it clockwise. When your hair is completely twisted, wrap it around itself in a circular motion to form a bun. Secure it with two more hair ties.
- Tuck extra hair under the hair ties, and use bobby pins to secure the bun in place.
- Mist the hair with hairspray to ensure a firm, all-day hold.
