Basically, this is a day old (gel free) wash and go that looked like a haystack after the satin bonnet came off. I wet my hair, slightly all over and moisturized it with a Shea Butter mixture. I smoothed the front down with an opened ended hair tie ( thin scarves, a leg removed from a pair of tights would do the trick as well). To avoid any lumps or bumps wrap the tie around your hair multiple times, make a small knot and tuck in the ends. Find the center of your oversized pony tail and distribute an even amount of hair all around. Starting from the back, roll your hair, tucking the ends under, adding bobby pins as you go to secure the bun. After a few more pins I was able to get my jumbo bun to have an even shape all over. Shake your head to be sure your bun is secure, who has time to make multiple bathroom runs to touch up their hair? I loved the idea of this style more than I loved the actual result… But it was quick, easy and neat enough to wear to work.
