Once you reach the ponytail base, secure the bun with hairpins. Voila! Your big bun is ready.

If you want you can take out few strands from the sides, and curl them with an iron to soften the look.
These were the various updos for long hair. Once you are done with your updo apply good amount of hairspray. This will help to hold your style better and for a long time. Enjoy!
