7 Easy Steps:

1. Work a few pumps of hair balm into dry hair. Brush using a bristle brush and allow to dry.

2. Smoothen all hair by using a hot iron.

3. Spray roots with a setting spray and then taking hair back off the face, brush into a high ponytail position and fasten with a clear elastic.

3. Tidy away any loose hair around the face and nape of neck by spraying area with a finishing spray and using a fine-tooth comb, brush fly-aways into the rest of hair.

4. Split pony tail in two, twist each section, twist together and wrap into a bun.

5. Fasten with pins, creating a square as the base. Push pins straight through to scalp and then inwards. For fine hair, best to position and fasten into knot in one motion using a silicone elastic.

6. Spray and neaten/mess-up as you desire.
