Step 1: Supplies
For this hairdo you will need:
Hot rollers or curling iron, ponytail holder, plastic hairbun shaper (I purchased mine from a dollar store, it was about $3), comb, bobby pins, hairspray.
Step 2: Curl Hair
Using hot rollers or curling iron, curl hair. The more curls, the better!
You could also use the pink foam rollers, but those take longer.
Step 4: Ponytail
Comb your hair up into a high ponytail and secure tightly with a coated ponytail holder. Do not use a rubber band, it will tear the hair. Pin up any loose hairs with bobby pins.
Step 5: Chignon Form
Because I have very thin hair, I like to use this lightweight chignon form to wrap my hair around, it makes my hair look fuller. You can get one in a darker color if your hair is dark brown or black.
Place a small amount of hair around the plastic form, tuck underneath and pin in place. Continue around the form, leaving most of the hair unpinned.
Step 6: Tease Hair
Tease the remaining hair with your comb.
Step 7: Pin and Spray
Using more bobby pins, pin the teased hair loosely to the base of the updo. Spray liberally with hairspray.
Embellish with a ribbon or silk flower.
