Create a ponytail.
Apply the hair donut.
If you have thin or fine hair, you may want to lightly tease it to help create the effect of a fuller bun. If you already have thick hair, and want your donut bun to look sleek and smooth, simply comb through your strands.
Wrap your hair around.
The most important thing, is to ensure that you’ve covered the whole donut with your hair so that it’s completely concealed. Tell-tale signs are a no-no!
Set it with spray.
If your bun begins to feel loose throughout the day, just top it up with some more hairspray or secure with a few more bobby pins – these little slides are your new BFF!
