There’s no right or wrong way to do a bun, but I get asked about mine from time to time, so I thought I would put together a quick video on how I do it.
You want to start with messy hair – the messier the better, and at minimum you want second day hair. The first step where I brush some of it isn’t entirely necessary, but it smooths the look out and also brushes some knots downwards a bit towards the middle of the bun which helps add volume to that part. With some practice, you can do this without a mirror and definitely just finger-combing.
One of my favourite things about this bun, outside of how the crazier my hair is the better the bun turns out, is that it really locks your hair in place. I can generally even go for a run or sleep in this without my hair wandering off to visit the neighbours.
