Take two invisible elastic bands and separate the hair into two ponytails, one above the other. Take sections of each ponytail at the ends and roll them toward the head, pinning them. Roll the top ponytail first, leaving pieces closest to the middle last.
Headband Top Knot: Start with curled hair or strands with texture (try sea salt spray to add a 'lil oomph). Place a no-slip headband just off hairline. Tease at the roots for volume before tying in a high pony.
