{Not to be mistaken with the ballet bun, the teased bun has much more volume and more of a tousled, effortless look!}

After our hairstyle video, there is a link to Anne’s channel where we both show you how to incorporate the hair accessories {bows and hair jewelry} we made using old ties and broken necklaces! {You can also see her video from the collab here!}

What I love about Anne’s accessories, along with our hairstyle, is that you can wear the bow all day and then later switch it out for the hair jewelry strands for a more formal/fancy look for a night on the town!


Items Needed: Brush, rat-tail comb, spray bottle, 1 large hairband, 4-6 bobby pins, hairspray and hair bow or jewelry {if desired}.

Time Requirement: 5-8 minutes

Skill Level: Easy

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by brushing your hair and pulling it into a high ponytail {You may find it easier to tip your head upside down when creating the ponytail. This will ensure that you get the HIGH ponytail look, instead of a ponytail on the back of your head}…
  2. Once you have created the high ponytail, secure it hair with a hair band {I wanted a very soft and messy look, so I intentionally left the hair loose and even allowed some to stay out of the ponytail}…
  3. Take either a comb or a teasing brush and begin teasing the hair of the ponytail a little at a time {I usually divide the ponytail into 4-5 sections to ensure all the hair is teased. The teasing usually just brushes out when you are done.}
  4. When the ponytail is teased {a good sign is when the hair can almost stand by itself at the base}, then use the teaser brush to smooth down the top hair of the ponytail leaving the teased volume underneath…
  5. Next, twist the hair very slightly and begin to wrap the hair around the elastic to create a bun.  {I did this in a clockwise direction, but feel free do it in a counter-clockwise direction if you wish}…
  6. When the bun is positioned the way you want it, use bobby pins to pin the rest of the hair into place….
  7. Add any accessory you desire {such as the DIY cute hair jewelry or hair bow that Anne showed us how to make}.
