Step 1: Comb through your hair and create a side part. If you’re doing this hairstyle on dirty hair, tease the top part of your hair, or even use dry shampoo or baby powder, so that your hairstyle is not flat and greasy.

Step 2: Gather your hair into a low ponytail, making sure that it’s not too sleek and that you’ve left some volume above it.

Step 4: Twist the ponytail and create a low bun. Use an elastic hair tie to secure the pun.

Step 5: Mess the whole hairstyle out. Let strands of hair from your bangs out. Use texturizing spray on your hair and you’re good to go.

For a natural approach, try spending some extra time teasing your hair to achieve extra volume. If you still want that big, rich texture, use hair extensions before creating the bun, as that is the most efficient tool to maximize your options.
