Bun Making Tips:
Use a good hair elastic, & MUST use bun pins (these are different from bobby pins)
Twist the hair around the pony tail base, securing with pins (through the elastic base) as you go.
Use a hair net to catch fly away hair, then finish securing the bun with pins.
Please ask any teacher for assistance if you need help understanding how to secure a proper bun!
