How to create the perfect bun

Your rating: None
A classic bun can be worn on an every day basis or for that special occasion. The perfect bun, however, does take a bit more effort.
What you'll need: 
Small hairband
Boar brush
Hair spray
Hair slides
Hair spray
Brush your hair into a high ponytail, smoothing your hair as you go along. You do not want any bumps especially at the back of your head.
Secure the ponytail with a small hairband.
Take a small bit of your hair and wrap it around the hairband so one cannot see it, tucking it into the hairband to secure it in place.
Brush your hair with the boar brush and spray the front of your hair so it stays in shape.
Take the rest of your hair and curl it as you would when you are putting your hair in a bun.
Secure the end of the hair with a hair slide, making sure to pin it towards the middle of the bun so the slides are not visible. You can use a couple of slides to secure the bun in place.
Spray your bun to make sure it lasts all day.
The perfect hair bun!
