Oversized bun This is the bun that eats the topknot for breakfast and then has the ballerina bun for lunch. It's HUGE. Fortunately, you don't have to have a crazy amount of hair to get the look. You can beef up your bun with clip-in hair extensions (like Scunci Faux Ponytail, $14.49), or a donut (a stretchy, round piece of foam), which is what I used. All I did was wrap sections of hair around the donut and pin them down with bobby pins.
If you don't have either of these accessories, you can go the old-fashioned route and tease your hair. Just spritz one-inch sections of your pony with a product like Redken Quick Tease 15, $18, then go at it with a teasing comb. It'll triple your hair's volume.
