Brush your hair
When your hair has dried, use a flat brush you smoothen your hair and get rid of tangles.
Tie your hair
Gather your hair using a flat brush and bring them all together to one side, letting them fall over your shoulder. Then, tie your hair with an elastic band to form a low side ponytail.
Put the hair bun donut
Insert your side ponytail into the hair bun donut until the hair donut reaches the elastic. Secure the hair donut in place using one or two bobby pins.
Hide the hair bun donut
Take a small section of your hair and wrap it around the donut. Repeat this step until all of your hair has covered the hair bun donut. Make sure to secure each section with bobby pins to keep your hair in place.
