I've had a couple requests on how to create the two updos above. Both were similarly constructed but one is high and somewhat clean, the other is low and intentionally messy.
The process is incredibly simple. The hair is tied into knots and then wrapped into a bun. Get the full how-to after the jump.
Knotted Bun Tutorial
3. Apply a generous amount of pomade or wax to one section, split it into two and tie it in a knot. Then tie it again and again until there is no hair left to tie. (Look at the photo in my header for a clearer image of what I mean.)
4. Wrap the section around the ponytail and pin.
If you want a larger bun, try teasing each section before you tie it. If you want a cleaner bun, add more product and make sure each section is smooth before you tie them. Be sure to send me a picture if you try this one!by
