Backcomb all the hair at the edge of your hairline all the way around your head. This will give your hair the gorgeous volume it needs to achieve this hot look.
Brush the top layer of hair over the backcombed hair to give it a smooth appearance. You don't want your hair looking like a rat's nest!
Gather all of your hair into a loose ponytail at the crown of your head and secure it with an elastic. Make sure to keep the ponytail loose to maintain the essence of this style.
Twist the ponytail around itself to form a bun and bobby pin the bun down at the crown of your head. The bun itself should be tightly secured, while the rest of your locks keep a loose and billowy look.
Pull a few strands of hair loose to give it an effortless look and spray with hairspray to hold it all in place. You're now rocking a gorgeously glamorous vintage look as seen on runways. Go practice your cat walk!
For a variation of this hairstyle, only do the bun on the top half of your hair, letting the bottom half hang loosely over your shoulders. Style the bottom half in curls and waves.
Make sure to start out with hair that has been detangled. If you back comb already tangled hair, you'll have a mess on your hands that won't be easy to fix without a pair of scissors.
