Although this style can be made to look quite fancy, you could also wear this bun for casual or everyday occasions as well. This updo can be made to look smooth and sleek, or more relaxed and tousled, depending on the look you are going for. You could add some texture above your ponytail before you make the bun and frame your face with some wispy pieces if you are wanting a more bohemian looking style. You could even pull the twists apart a little more to make an adorable messy bun. Along with formal occasions, I could see this being a cute casual hairstyle for school, work, or even the beach.
Supplies needed to recreate this updo hairstyle:
- 1 medium size ponytail holder. You will want to choose one that is stretchy, and strong.
- Several bobby pins.
- Hairspray, gel, wax, etc.
I love that this style can be created with just one hair tie and a few bobby pins, and it literally only takes a few minutes to do! This hairstyle will work best with medium or long hair and most hair textures.
