Separating hair

1. Separate the hair in the front and make a ponytail

Start off with a middle part. Using your fingers or a comb, separate the hair in front of your ears.

Then collect the rest of your hair into a high ponytail.

2. Make a loosely wrapped bun

Wrap the tail end around the base of the ponytail, almost musing it down as you go. It shouldn’t be taut.

Then secure this with another hair tie.

3. Curl the hair in front and brush through them

Use a curling iron to carefully the loose hair in the front away from your face, in sections to create 3-4 curls on each side.

After holding it on the iron for a few seconds, let it loose and scrunch the curl with your hand.

4. Pin up the curls

Grab some curls on 1 side and pin them back, at the base of the bun.

Repeat on the other side, leaving down the curls closest to your face to frame it. 

Adding final touches

For the final touch, pinch and pull the bun to add volume to either side.

This hairstyle is great for beginners because it looks great and doesn’t have to be exact!
