To create this look:

  1. Apply an anti-frizz creme to towel-dried hair.Part hair to one side and blow dry smooth,curling under at the ends.

  2. Pull hair all the way over to the side,and tie it into a low ponytail securing with an elastic hair band.

  3. 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.

  4. Finish the look with a shine spray to add sheen and tame flyaways.

Warning: compliment overload to ensue.
