High Bun Start by putting the hair in a high ponytail, leaving out the fringe and a small section on the side for a braid. Proceed to backcomb the ponytail and form it into a high bun, securing with bobby pins.

Classy Bow Updo - How it was done: Hair was given a side parting and sleeked back into a high ponytail. The ponytail was then divided into two large sections that were back-combed to form volume and secured into a bow shape; and a third, smaller section that was positioned at the front of the bow to hide the grips and complete the shape.
