Star style: Elizabeth Banks' twisted style


For the MTV Movie Awards, Elizabeth Banks opted for a fun take on the traditional bun and went with a twist. You have to have really thick and long locks, or extensions, to pull this look off. You start by pulling hair into a really high ponytail at the crown of the head and then twist it around itself and into itself to finish it off. With a bun you would twist hair tight and loop it around like a coiled snake, where this look is about tucking the ends in to create a poof effect. Using hairspray when you’re finished will help loose strands stay put and help the pulled back hairs stay smooth.
