  • Start by parting your hair from the corner of each eyebrow to the corner of your head.
  • Place the bottom half of your hair into a ponytail.
  • For the first bun, take a third of the hair in the top section and wrap it around in a bun.
  • Take a few bobby pins to hold the bun into place. TIP: Make sure the pins are nice and tight so that the bun doesn't fall out.
  • Then fluff the bun with your fingers to make it a little messy and full.
  • For the second bun, take the section of hair that's directly under the first bun and repeat steps 3-5.
  • With the last section of hair, tuck it behind the second bun towards the crown of your head and repeat steps 3-5.
  • Lastly, let your hair down from the bottom ponytail.
