    HOW TO: The Fun Bun

    We recommend you read the instructions first before commencing to understand the process of the steps and to prevent you having to look back at them mid way through a step. We wouldn’t want your fingers getting stuck in your hair tie between step 2 and 3.


    Step 1: It’s important to identify if your hair is straight or curly to get the best results. For those with straight hair you might want to use a curling iron to curl your hair a little at the ends. This will help to make the hair tuck a little better into the bun. If you have a wave or curl to your hair then you get to skip this step.

    Step 2: Flip your hair over and gather everything into a ponytail on top of you head, securing it with an elastic hair tie.

    Step 3: On the last time around with the hair tie, only pull the ponytail through half way.

    Step 4: Take the loop you’ve created and spread it out. Widen it and allow it to be somewhat messy.

    Step 5: Take the bottom end of your hair and wrap it around the ponytail base where your elastic is.

    Step 6: Pin the end of the ponytail to the base using a couple of hair pins/bobby pins.

    Step 7: Pull on pieces and then pin them down. This will give your fun bun a slightly more messy texture. Play around with step to achieve your desired look.

    Step 8: Spray a small amount of hairspray all over. If you are looking for a messy look don’t smooth down all of the fly aways, just lightly tuck the pieces that have gone rogue! Otherwise achieve a sleeker look by applying more hairspray and ensuring all bits are nicely smoothed down.

    Enjoy your FUN BUN!
