1. Prep hair by spraying strands with Kérastase Powder Bluff for added grip and Kérastase Laque Dentelle for a flexible hold and to smooth flyaways.

2. Section hair on just the top of head starting by the temples.

3. Use a flat brush to comb the section back into a small ponytail at the top of the head using an elastic.

4. Gently twist and wrap the ponytail around the elastic to form a bun.

5. Secure bun with bobby pins.

6. Finish by spritzing with Kérastase Laque Dentelle for added hold.
