Gather the hair at the crown of your head and place into a lightly messy knot. Start the bun in the back and once yo have the body created, gather the front pieces and add it to your fantasy top knot to maintain the middle part. Use bobby pins to secure any loose pieces to create the shape you want.

Step 5: Finish with a Thickening Spray

Finish with Bed Head by TIGI Superstar Queen for a Day Thickening Spray to give hair volume and add some TRESemmé TRES TWO Extra Hold Non-Aerosol Hair Spray for hold.
