Try this if you have hair that's shoulder-length or longer. The more hair you have, the larger and more dramatic the bun will be. It's perfect for showing off an outfit's pretty neck detail.
1. Spritz your roots with dry shampoo or texturizing spray to soak up oil and add volume, says Nicholas Penna, Jr., owner of SalonCapri, in Boston. Try Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. ($19.50, Oribe.com)
2. Twist hair up into a knot and use a tool that helps you pin and secure your bun. Our pick: Oscar Blandi's Pronto Styling Pin. ($12; BlandiProducts.com)
