March 14, 2014


This is the final DIY hair tutorial from my collaboration with Your Cloud Parade and 10.11 Make Up (you can see the previous three here). This one actually might be my favourite yet as it’s so simple… I think even I could do it!

I hope you’ve enjoyed these tutorials as much as I have sharing them. If you’ve tried any of them out, I’d love to see. Post a photo on Instagram or Twitter and tag @RocknRollBride in it!

Supplies Needed

♥ Hairspray (we used Kenra Volume Spray)
♥ Bobby and hair pins
♥ Backcomber (we used Tool Structure Tortoise Backcomber)
♥ Elastic hair band (we used Goody Ouchless Elastic Hair Bands)


Step one: Gather all of your hair into a ponytail. You will want to position the ponytail based on where you would like the bun to rest on your head. The ponytail will be the center of where the bun will sit.

Once you have secured the hair, back comb it by taking sections of the ponytail and pushing the hair from the ends towards the scalp with your comb. Spray lightly with hairspray.


Step two: Separate the hair into four sections. Twist a section of hair, form a circle, and bring the ends of the hair through the center as though you were tying a knot.

Do not bring the hair all the way through, and pin the knot, securing with bobby pins. Repeat these steps with the other three sections.

Step three: Once the hair is all secured, pull some of the hair in each knot, tugging gently in opposite directions, to make the knots fuller.
