Recreating this hairstyle couldn't be simpler. Make sure you're equipped with a brush, a can of Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, a fine-tooth comb, a hair tie, an insert, and some bobby pins.
Step one: After brushing the hair through, spray it all with High Lift Creation Spray and brush it again. This will give the hair a matte finish and a whole lot of hold for the following steps.
Step two: Gather all of your hair back into a high pony.
Step three: Pull the pony through the middle of the hair insert then do some minimal teasing to build extra volume. Don't go too far though, you still need to be able to shape the hair.
Step four: Arrange the hair around the insert and secure with bobby pins.
Step five: Spray the hair all over to finish, smoothing down any unwanted flyaways.
If you would prefer not to use a hair insert, you can just back-comb the pony for longer before winding it into the bun instead.
What do you think? Will you be rocking an XXL bun this summer?
