Hi everyone! My name is Clare and I’m from Australia. My website is Seton Girls’ Hairstyles. Today I’m going to be sharing with you this super quick & easy updo, which would be perfect for Easter or any other formal occasions!
I love how pretty this looks, and that it’s so easy to create in such a short amount of time.
Items needed: two small rubber hair ties, 1 normal hair tie, and a handful of bobby pins.
Time: 5-10 minutes
- I started with my hair down, parted to one side, and the curls leftover from when I curled my hair the day before (though you can of course, use fresh curls 😉 ) Then I sectioned off a circular sized bit of hair from that back of my head, and tied it off with a rubber hair tie. Gently tug on the section to create volume in the crown area.
- Next, gather all the hair from either side of the part (now is a good time to leave any bits of hair out around your face if you’re wanting to, like I did) back to just behind your ears and tie together at the back of your head directly over the hair tie from the section you just tied off. (see video above)
- Poke two fingers up and behind the hair tie creating a small hole, and grab the section you just tied off and pull it up and through the hole. (Again, see video)
- Now gather the remaining hair into a ponytail but on the last pass through the hair tie only take the hair about half-way through and stop there..
- Gather the remaining hair left and flip up and tuck all of it into the hair tie (refer to video), just keep tucking and tugging your hair around until you get it to the way you like it..(if you’re hair is too short for this, you can do the bun any way that works for you.)
- Now use bobby pins to manipulate the bun into the shape you want (it should be a bit like a messy bun when you’re done, though you can make it neater/messier if you prefer.) (I didn’t finish pinning it all into place at the end of the video, but added more pins in afterwards to make it exactly how I wanted it.) A hand mirror is very helpful at this point so that you can see exactly how it looks from the back.
- You can loosely curl the little bits of hair you left out in the front if desired, or add some hairspray or small flowers, and you’re done!
This would be great for a prom or formal event, or just any time you want to do a little something extra in your hair. 😉
