Hi, my name is Claire Coleman. I’m a hairstylist, and I’m going to show you how to do an elegant high bun hairstyle. First thing we’re going to do is we’re going to gather all the hair and bring it into a high ponytail. I also kept a little bit of her bangs – she has long bangs, so I kept that out. And, next thing, we’re going to take the ponytail and put it into two sections. Just split it in half, it makes it a little bit easier to manage when you have a lot of hair. And, we’re just going to start wrapping it around. And, the second section you’re going to keep in the middle, so it’s going to be coming out of the first bun. So, start wrapping your bun, and I’m also going to be securing it as I’m wrapping it. And, you’re just going to take a little piece of hair from your bun to the hair that you gather, just to anchor it down. And, just a couple of pins there. And, just keep wrapping, and definitely keeping the second section free. And, tuck your ends in. Then, you’re going to take the second section and you’re going to go outside of the bun that you just wrapped and make a second bun around it. This is going to create a lot of volume, and you’re going to have a nice, big, elegant bun. And, I like to do a little bit looser of a wrap, not so tight it just kind of gives a little bit of a different look, and you’re also going to secure that as you’re wrapping it to the hair that you’ve pulled into a ponytail. And, just want to be mindful of pinning a little too hard. You don’t want to make indents into your style, you want to keep it placed where your hair is. You’re just going to keep wrapping. It makes it much easier to pin as you go, because then you can see exactly where your style is headed. Couple more pins. Just make sure everything feels secure. You can always tame flyaways with a little bit of hairspray. And, we’re going to show you from the back. And, from the front. My name is Claire Coleman, and I just showed you how to do an elegant high bun hairstyle.
