Step 2: Gather Hair Using Your “Eye Line”

To achieve the sophisticated and sexy aspect of the look, the bun should land somewhere at your eye level or just above. As you pull back your hair to start the bun, start your hands next to your eyes and gather your hair. That’s the line of where your bun should lay to be the most flattering. It will give you a little faux-facelift. Once you find that line, gather up all of your hair to create the quick fashion bun.

Step 3: Create a Twisted Bun

Creating this bun is so simple! Once you’ve got your hair gathered back where you want it, twist the ponytail around and around, creating your bun. To give it more of that effortless, model-vibe, leave the ends of your hair out of the bun instead of tucked in. This will create some fun texture to play with. You can pull it to either side of your fashion bun style.
