Bedhead Bun 1. Lightly backcomb the hair at your crown for lift. 2. Gather your hair into a loose, messy ponytail on the nape of your neck. Just hold it for now; don’t secure with an elastic. 3. Using your other hand, twist the ponytail around itself to create a bun shape, and secure with pins. 4. Tousle the hair on top, and leave out a few short pieces in front for a no-frills bedhead look.
