First gather hair in a very low ponytail. Separate the ponytail in half and then separate each half into three smaller sections.

Take the bottom two sections and loosely twist them up into the ponytail

Take the two sections above that and loosely twist them towards each other in order to create an overlapping design with the hair. Secure the pieces in their place with a few bobby pins. Then repeat with the last two sections.

Take the ends of the hair and tuck them underneath the twisted pieces and pin them down. Now all you need to do is pull a couple of thin strands of hair out of the bun and you’re done.

There you have it ladies: a remix to your regular hairstyle. This look is so easy to achieve but it definitely looks like you had some professional help. Whether you are heading out on a date or if your grabbing drinks with you girls this hair bun is sure to take your look from 0 to 100 real quick.
