Pull hair all the way over to the side,and tie it into a low ponytail securing with an elastic hair band.
Wrap the pony and loop it as if you're going to knot it,forming a bun-like shape.Secure with bobby pins,crisscrossing them as you pin.Spray hairspray all over to hold the style in place.
Finish the look with a shine spray to add sheen and tame flyaways.
