Easy steps to make a proper bun!!

1.Spray loose hair liberally with hair gel.

2.Using the paddle brush, brush hair into a ponytail in the middle of the head. Hold ponytail in place with one hand.

3.Use the boar bristle brush to smooth out any bumps in the ponytail. Hair should be smooth and slicked back! No bangs!

4.Fasten ponytail tightly in place with a thick hair elastic. Shake your head back and forth a few times to make sure the ponytail will stay in place.

5.Twirl free hair in one direction, forming a tight coil, and slowly wrap the coil around the base of the ponytail to begin forming the bun.

6.As you wrap, secure the coil to the base of the ponytail by sticking hair pins through the hair and the hair elastic, pinning along the outer-most edge of the coil until hair is in a cinnamon twist shape.

7.Use a hairnet to keep loose ends neat and tidy. Make sure it matches your hair color.

8.Spray the styled hair with another mist of hairspray and use hair pins to tuck in any stray pieces of hair.
