To get this look, pull hair up into a messy ponytail at the top of your head and secure with a hair tie. No need to brush hair first and it can help to flip hair over your head to position the ponytail. For a seamless look, use a hair tie that matches your hair color. Next, slightly loosen the ponytail by gently pulling up on on the ponytail. To get the bun or top knot, twist pieces of hair all the  way around the base of the ponytail and secure with bobby pins. This creates the loose oversized bun.
