Instructions
1. Brush all your hair away from your face, then pull it back into a high ponytail. Secure with a hair elastic.
2. Pull a small section of the ponytail off to the side, then twist the remaining hair around the elastic to form a bun. Secure the bun with a hair elastic and a few bobby pins.
3. Create a three-strand braid with the loose hair, and secure the ends with a hair elastic.
4. Gently pull the braid apart to give it more dimension. This will also make it lay flat against your head.
5. Wrap the braid around the bun, and tuck the ends underneath. Secure the braid in place with bobby pins.
6. Brush any loose hair into place, then spray the hair with hair spray to keep the style looking polished all day.
