Forming Fiber


Step 1
To begin the look, create an even centre part.

Step 2
Leave two small sections of hair around the face for softness.

Step 3
On the first side, create a secondary part line from the top of the head to just behind the ear.

Step 4
Apply VERB Ghost Hairspray to the front section of hair.

Step 5
Add an elastic to sectioned hair to create a high ponytail applying the elastic where you want your space bun to sit.
Hot tip: make sure the elastic spot is a little higher than you want to go, since gravity can bring placement down.

Step 6
Repeat steps 3 to 5 on the other side to create a second ponytail.

Step 7
Apply VERB Ghost Hairspray to the top of the head to tame any flyaways.

Step 8
Apply VERB Volume Dry Texture Spray to one ponytail.

Step 9
Create small sections in the ponytail hair and back comb to create fullness.

Step 10
Apply VERB Volume Dry Texture Spray again.

Step 11
Wrap the hair around the elastic applying bobby pins as you go to create the space bun and secure the hair in place. 

Step 12
Apply VERB Ghost Hairspray to your completed space bun to tame any flyaways.

Step 13
Repeat steps 9 to 13 on the other side!

Step 14
Apply VERB Forming Fiber paste to the front pieces of hair to smooth and lock in place.

Step 15
Use a hair straightener to give the bottom half of your hair a clean, sleek finish.
