What You Need
- A large T-shirt that you don’t mind cutting up
- A brush or comb
- Hair ties
- Start by selecting the shirt that you want to use. Make sure it’s made of soft material so it won’t damage your hair.
- Cut off the bottom hem of the t-shirt so that you are left with a rectangular piece of fabric.
- Fold the rectangular piece of fabric into thirds lengthwise, creating an approximately two-inch-wide band.
- Brush or comb your hair so it’s free of tangles and knots.
- Place the folded band around your head like a headband, positioning it where you want your tied-up hair to sit.
- Take sections of hair from either side of your face and bring them back behind each ear so they sit flat against your head.
- Take both sections of loose hair at the back and tie them together loosely over one shoulder with a small elastic band.
- Take the center portion between both elbows/lower arms and cross over underneath/behind all tied-back hair bundles above elbow level. Subsequent laid-folded ends may also be looped through abovelong end if needed. Bunch together at/above nape of neck like a pony tail with an overhang.
- Take the ends of the shirt that are sticking out from beneath your tied-up hair bundle and bring them around to the front of your head, tying them together in a loose knot just above your forehead.
- Adjust the knot so it sits securely but not too tightly on top of your head, releasing any strands that may have come loose during this process.
Congratulations – you’ve successfully tied your hair up with a shirt! The beauty of this style is that you can customize it to best suit you and the occasion – make the bun messier or tighter, place it higher or lower on your head, or leave some strands hanging loosely for an effortless look.
