Below, instructions will be given on how to pull of this versatile hair style with just a few short, simple steps.
First, you should straighten your hair with a comb being sure to get rid of all tangles and snarls. Some individuals find using styling gel adds extra control for this hair style. Next, divide your hair in half in a vertical manner to create two pigtails. Then, use elastic bands to secure the pigtails. After this, create a bun by coiling one of the pigtails. Using bobby pins, anchor each ponytail into the desired bun shape. Repeat this process with the other ponytail. The bobby pins should be placed approximately two inches apart from each other for optimal security. After finishing this process, you should have two buns stacked next to each other on the back of your head. To complete the double bun hairstyle, you should apply a small amount of hairspray.
