Loosely pull all your hair to the crown of the head and secure with a hair elastic to create a high ponytail. If your hair is really thick, add another elastic for extra hold.
Divide the hair into three sections and make a simple three-strand braid. Secure the ends with a hair elastic.
If your hair is fine textured and you want your bun to appear thicker, simply tug at the strands to plump up your braid.
Wrap the braid around your high ponytail and bobby pin it into place. Finish it off with some firm-hold hairspray if you’d like.
