This is my second Instructable.
My hair is actually down to my hips, but it should work with shorter hair too!

Put your hair into a pony tail. Don't use a pony tail holder, just hold it with one hand.
Twist it.
Lay one finger slightly above the pony, and coil your hair around it.
Coil, coil, coil... until all of your hair is coiled around your finger.
Hold the bun you've made, take the top layer and fold it up towards the crown.

Step 3: Video
