Knotted bun: with no bobby pins--if you tie the hair twice and wrap another ponytail holder around the whole bun twice it secures it perfectly and the elastic seems to fold under the whole bun so it's almost invisible.
Quick Messy Bun / Up-Do. Love this! Tried it with my curly, medium length hair (so I didn't need to do the brushing or teasing parts) and it worked really well! A nice big bun with lots of waves/texture thanks to my curls :)
