#1 Put your hair in a ponytail. High or low.
Put a hairstick horizontally.
#2 Now divide your hair into two parts.
Take each part and put it up, over and behind the hair stick. Or come behind and up the hairstick. Either direction works fine.
Now wrap them in opposite directions around the ponytail holder and looping around hairstick.
#3 You can go any direction, wrapping around for a different look each time.
#4 Add pins, scrunchie, claws or whatever to secure the bun on top or underneath.
