The Super Bun

So I don't know about you, but all this hot weather makes me sometimes wish I had hair like my husband (he's bald-ha).  But seriously, the less of it to get in my way the better!  My latest hairdo is SUPER fun, and if you are like me and enjoy a little height in your hair, try it.  It takes a little finesse, but with practice, it may become your go-to hairstyle!  People just might stop you to admire the sheer volume you created, so have fun with it.   Add sparkle with a hairpin, or tie a ribbon around the base to make it more playful.  Bring your hairspray ladies, because this one needs it :) 

Here's what you'll need:
 A teasing comb, two hair elastics, and bobby pins
plus...a good can of hairspray
Start with a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
Hairspray any fly-aways.
Distribute your hair evenly around the ponytail and 
tease starting at the base. Hairspray for strength.
Gather the hair around the first ponytail and secure another 
ponytail holder around the first one.
It will appear as a small bun below the original ponytail.  
Working from the back, take half of the hair and bring it over the top of the small bun, covering it and securing in the front with bobby pins (hiding the ends at the base of the bun).  Then, take the remaining hair from the front, and bring it up and over toward the back and secure ends again with bobby pins.  You can position the hair to cover any holes and give it a good shellac.  Take it out on the town!
