Day 2: Medium Hair
Take advantage of the texture brought on by dirtier, second-day hair with an easy bun thats a favorite of celebs, like Eva Mendes. The sex appeal of this devil-may-care look is in the messy texture, so resist the urge to pick up a comb or brush. A little bit of tangle will actually enhance this 'do!
To start, finger comb your hair into a high ponytail. Using only your hands as styling tools will create some bumps, but relaxthats part of what makes this look work. Rather than securing the ponytail with an elastic, keep one hand on the base of your hair and use the other to twist the ends into a ballerina bun. Not tying the ponytail prevents your hair from getting too flat around your hairline. Stick open hairpins (they grab more strands than bobby pins) into the buns base as you wrap each coil into place.
RB Tip: If you have thick hair or are using a bun filler to add more volume to your updo, secure the ponytail into place with an elastic before setting making the bun. When youre done, finger comb the front pieces to add more texture along your hairline.
