Looking to update your classic bun? Look no further. We've got the step-by-step how-to to create a timeless, romantic twisted bun à la Elizabeth Banks. Turns out this casual knot is easier than you think!

Step 1) Begin with straight or slightly wavy hair. Create a deep side part and draw out a two-inch section running from the part along the front hairline to the ear. This will be the face-framing curl left outside the bun.

Step 2) Pull the rest of the hair off-center and collect it at the nape of the neck.

Step 3) Next, twist tresses loosely behind the ear and secure with u-shaped hair pins. Try Goody's Modern Updo Hair pin ($6.29).

Step 4) Use a large-barreled curling iron to make a few waves in the section of hair framing the face.

Step 5) To complete the look, mist with a medium hold hairspray for added hold and shine.
