Sweater: Sea

Products Used:

*Nexxus Humectress Luxe Lightweight Conditioning Mist

*Nexxus Exxtra Defining Gel

*Nexxus Maxximum Finshing Mist

*Soft Bristle Brush. I love the one from Mason Pearson – it’s the best for gripping and smoothing the hair. Here’s a less expensive alternative.

*Ponytail Holder

*Bobby Pins

The Steps:

1. Start with your hair down, parted in the way you like it. Second or third day hair works best with this style.

2. Spritz with a conditioning mist to give it a bit more grip and sheen. I love this one from Nexxus New York. It’s works well to condition the hair surface but never feels too heavy.

2. After I spray in some product, I use a soft bristle brush to smooth down my hair and I brush it into a low ponytail.

3. Once it’s in the ponytail, I use a bit of gel to smooth out any flyways and give it a bit of hold. You can use a little now and then a bit more at the end.

4. This is the key part. I use my finger to hold the bun in place and keep twisting my hair around the base. Twist, twist twist, while using your pointer to hold the base. If it takes you a few tries, don’t get discouraged! Practice makes perfect.

5. I then secure with a ponytail holder. There might be a few hairs that are sticking out, but don’t worry about that.

6. To further secure and clean up the miscellaneous pieces of hair,  I use a couple of bobby pins around my bun. The bun doesn’t have to be perfect!

7. If the bun looks like it’s tilted a bit to the right or left, you can gently shift it to the middle.

8. Finish with a strong finish hairspray. Done!
