Hi, my name is Claire Coleman. I'm a hair stylist, and I'm going to show you how to do a Carrie Bradshaw bun. First thing we're going to do is we're going to start with our hair in a very high ponytail. I'm going to take my teasing comb and work section by section and just start teasing like crazy. And we're going to hold your section and tease from the root to almost the ends of the hair. Like that. And we're just going to tease and tease and tease all of your hair and it's really best to start from the root going to the ends, it makes it a lot easier to brush out when you're done with your hair style so that you don't have a big bird's nest the next day or even that night. This makes it a lot, a lot easier. Now the reason for teasing is we really want to create a really voluminous bun. It's going to be nice, big and round and just sit on the top of the head. Also while you're teasing, try and make sure to over direct the hair so you want to go a little bit farther on your head than where you would normally put it. It's just recreating the place that everything is going to be. Almost there. One last section. OK we have a giant poof ball. So now you're going to just take the poof ball and just start wrapping it smoothing it out and creating a smaller poof ball but still on the top of the head. You're going to get a really good volume shape here and the teasing really helps to form that. So you're just kind of wrapping it the same way you would a bun but just be really careful. This look is still really messy but it looks really great when you tease it up big like that. And once you get the shape that you want, just tuck the ends in and you're just going to pin it to secure the hair. Be careful not to push in too far like I did, because then you create a bump. A little indent. So you want to just be careful. Sometimes doing a little horizontal pinning is good because then you can just still maintain the shape. Now this style will pretty much stay because it's really not going anywhere. And just keep checking your shape, make sure it looks even on both sides. Tuck in any loose ends. There we go. From the back. From the front. My name is Claire Coleman, and I just showed you how to do a Carrie Bradshaw bun.
