You asked, I answer. I’ve received so many emails and Facebook messages asking me to give instructions on how to make the big ole’ bun I often wear piled on top of my head like in this post yesterday and this post last month. Well you’re in luck because today, I give you my step by step guide for how to make the perfect donut bun.
What you need:
– One bun donut. I got mine at H&M but I’ve seen them at many major drug stores too.
– A comb
– A mirror
– A little patience!
Step 1: Make a ponytail high up on your head. Smooth any stray pieces with a comb. Secure the pony tail with an elastic band.
Step 2: Take a donut and place it at the very tip of the pony tail.
Step 3: Over the donut, split your pony tail in two and start to wrap each section around the outside of the donut.
Step 4: Start spinning the donut towards your head, like your rolling up the sleeve of your shirt. The hair should get spun into the donut. This is the trickiest part and a lot can go wrong. Sometimes this takes me 3 or 4 tries to get it right but keep trying. The perfect bun is out there and you can achieve it!
Step 5: Take loose ends and secure them under the donut with bobby pins. I generally just fumble with the bun, covering the donut where needed until it looks pretty. I skip the bobby pin step but it depends on your hair.
Step 6: Look gorgeous, strut your stuff, and say goodbye to bad hair days!
