This style is pretty, it's chic and it's right on trend. It's also super versatile so if you need a new 'do for work or even a wedding, it'll showcase your makeup (even if that's just a quick sweep of bright red lipstick) and keep your hair totally under control.
What you need:
Hair tie, volumizing spray, fine-tooth comb, bobby pins, finishing spray
Gather all of your hair back into a high ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Then, use your fingers to muss the top and sides of your hair a little bit.
Spray the 'tail with plenty of volumizing spray then go to town with a fine-tooth comb. Tease it until the hair has basically doubled or tripled in size – it all depends how big you want your bun to be. Just be careful not to rip through your hair as you back-comb it; time efficiency doesn't necessitate collateral damage in the form of split ends!
Top tip - To un-tease your hair the next day, apply a lot of conditioner and patiently work out the tangles with a wide-tooth comb.
Loosely twist the ponytail into a bun and secure with three or four bobby pins. Complete the look with a liberal mist of finishing spray and you're all set!
