It only takes seconds to do, but your friends don’t need to know that!

2. Create a half bun

Pull the top part of your ponytail, from just under your hair elastic, up through one twist of your hair elastic, creating a small bun.

3. Wrap your bun

Separate the ponytail below your bun into two equal sections.

Twisting hair

Twist the sections so they are tight.

Twisting hair

Bring the twisted sections to the top of your bun and cross them over.


Now bring the two sections down, underneath your bun and tuck them into the hair elastic.


Tuck all the ponytail hair into the elastic so it’s fully hidden under the bun, while wrapped right around it.

Fanning bun

Use your fingers to fan out the bun.
