Romantic side bun - This is a hairstyle that I have been

Romantic side bun - This is a hairstyle that I have been doing for a while, and people always seem to be so amazed by it even though it only takes a few minutes to do! Here's the step-by-step: 1.Tease hair all over the upper half of head. Make sure there is more teasing towards the sides of your head, and less teasing closer to your part (hair sticking up around your part is just TOO much). 2. Secure hair with an elastic in a mid-low side ponytail a couple of inches behind your ear. I suggest having the ponytail on the side that is opposite of your part. Leave out a front section of hair (it can also be helpful to part this section off and clip it out of the way before you make your side pony). 3. Hopefully you are good at making a messy bun! Create one by tilting your head to the side and spreading all the hair in the pony out evenly from the center if the ponytail. Mist with an aerosol holding spray and wait a few seconds for it to dry. Pull the hair in your pony that is laying flat to the center and secure tightly with another elastic, but make sure that you still have a good amount of ends sticking out of the bun. 4. Now is the fun and creative part! Take the ends that are sticking out of the bun and begin bobby pinning them in different areas around the BASE of your bun (by the elastic). I pull some of the ends out further to create a longer piece of hair so I can pin it higher up and lower down. Keep securing all of the lose strands to the base of your bun, making sure to stick the bobby pins directly in your hair. If you want you can secure some of the strands directly into the bun as well. 5. Use your aerosol mist and the tip of a rat tail comb to make the finishing touches. I spray my head with the mist first, then use the tip of the comb to fluff out parts of the bun, strands of hair, and the hair around the bun. You choose your volume! 6. Optional: Use a curling iron to curl the section of hair you left out away from your hair, making sure to hairspray it. If you don't like bangs you can loosely secure this section into the bun as well. 7. Finish it all off with aerosol spray and you are all done! This took a while for me to get down the first few times I did it, but now I can do this hairstyle in less than 5 minutes and people will think it took me a long time to create this look :) Good luck!
