I'm really into updos, and they can actually be pretty easy if you know what you're doing. I added this headband to complete the look.

Step 1: Creating the Bun

Start by curling your hair. Wrap your hair around the barrel to give your hair a more natural and voluminous look. When I'm in a hurry in the morning, I just curl the front and top of my hair. Leave the curled hair in front and braid the back before pinning it into a bun. Then, pin small sections of hair to the back. I've done this hairtsyle in 5 minutes, which is great for busy mornings. In this tutorial, I curled my entire head of hair before putting it into an unbraided bun, but it basically has the same effect. I just pin everything randomly and somehow it works. Make sure most of the bobby pins are concealed, and the hair isn't too tight against your head.
How do we make that headband? It's adorable!
That was a very simple accessory to create! I took a strip of spare tulle, and tied a loose knot off to one side. Then I sewed some spare beads and trinkets onto it (I felt that the knot was a good foundation). I found everything in some of my craft bins and junk drawers. One of the attachments is actually a part of another headband that I have that broke off. I figured I might as well make myself a new headband if the other one was broken. :)
