It’s Tutorial Thursday! Just kidding that’s not a real thing here I just love alliterations, ha. I am excited to share another fun and super easy up do hairstyle tutorial with you guys. You may have seen my piece over on Maurice’s blog where I shared a fun updo and casual look perfect for summer. They were a bit more complex than this and to be honest this is something I do all the time.

It totally depends on your hair type but people will ask me why I go through these steps for a low bun. I know some of you can just twist you hair and throw it up but that is not the case for me. I have extremely thin hair (I know someone of you must be in the same boat) and if I did that it would be a tiny protrusion from my head and fall out of the hair tie in seconds!

The only plus is that my hair holds curl well so it’s easy to curl and add some texture before I put it up! I shared a post on how to curl with a straight iron before so check back on that if you need it. Once you are ready get a few things together: straight iron, texture spray, hairspray, salon bobby pins (that are open not the flat kind) & a brush and you are good to go!

  1. Start by gathering your hair into a low pony and use a hair tie to secure. I prefer the thin black bands just because they are harder to see.

2. Start by taking the ponytail and twisting all the way through. Then start to wrap this around the ponytail holder.

3. Once you have it fully wrapped secure with another band loosely.

4. Go through with bobby pins and secure the pieces loosely to your head. You want it to look a little messy so don’t secure it too tight!

5. Use your fingers to lift the hair at the crown of your head to give a little volume. You can always tease that area before starting as well!
