Making a bun with long hair and no donut
When it comes to making a bun with long hair, the first step is to start with a ponytail so you will need a hair tie. This will hold your hair together more easily.
After that, the process is relatively simple. You will twist your hair and very carefully coil the twist around the base of the ponytail. Use the bobby pins as you go to hold it together.
As you get to the end of your hair, you will use bobby pins to tuck your hair underneath the bun. You’ll want to add a few to make sure it’s nice and secure.
You can also use hair sticks to keep your hair in place. This variety pack has several different styles to choose from.
