You can create cute updo styles for long or thin tresses with the help of bobby pins. These easy-to-do styles should be effortless and should bring out your natural hair color and texture. A simple ponytail is all it takes to create a chic bun. For thick or coarse tresses, use two sections of hair. Wrap each section around the base of the bun, twisting it together. Secure the ends with bobby pins.
