Faux Bun Tutorial

I do not have enough hair to create a bun by wrapping and twisting my hair. So started to do this faux bun. Its great for unwashed hair or the day after a blowout. Plus it EASY, I am not good at doing hair so if I can do it, you can too.

Start with dry hair. Put into a ponytail on the highest part of your head. I run my fingers through it because I want a messy look.

Take 1/3 of your hair and fold it over and tuck it into your ponytail.

It will look like this. You can pull some hair out  for a larger size bun.

Then take half of the remaining hair and do the same in the front, tuck it into your pony and pull a little out.

Tuck your last section of hair into your pony. You will have some strays and the ends of your hair might stick out. Just keep tucking in strays and use bobby pins if needed.

Here is the finished look. I like to pull on it and shake it to make it more messy and casual.

Here is the back.

Wha La! Easy Peasy, right?
