Wear two headbands with an updo - You want to place the two thin headbands a couple inches apart, and tease your hair at the crown so that the bands are separated with volume. Pull your hair into a high ponytail, twist into a messy topknot, and pin in place.
WHAT!! "Make sure the grooved side of the bobby pin is facing down, against the skin. The ribbing is designed to grip hair and lock it in place, and you will capture more hair with the pin in that position"
Take 2 elastic bands and separate the hair into 2 ponytails, one above the other, in the back of your head. Once the ponytails are secured, take sections of each ponytail and, starting at the ends, roll them toward the head, pinning them in place with bobby pins. Roll the top ponytail first, then the bottom, leaving pieces closest to the middle for last.
