To snag this ~wild~ look, secure the top third of hair into a pony at your crown. Gather the first pony and a second section of hair into a pony on the back of your head.

Twist and pin small pieces of the pony to create a slightly messy bun. Then, loosely drape the front section to frame your face and pin into the bun.
