How to make a Bun hairstyle

1. Using a smoothing brush, scrape your hair back into a low ponytail, securing it at the nape with a snag-free band. Spray hairspray onto a huge make-up brush and smooth it over the surface of the hair to control any stray ends.

2. Place a bun ring around the ponytail and secure it with matt hair grips.

3. Start to wrap the hair around the bun ring section by section, and secure it with matt hair grips.

4. Carry on until you have completely covered the bun ring and all the sections are neatly secured in place.

5. When the hair is secure, gently pull a few wispy strands out of the bun using the end of the tail comb and finish by spraying with a light glossing spray.

6. Stick a feather or decorative hair piece through the bun If you want to add drama.
