Tyra Banks Funky Updo

Gather hair -- no need to be precise, as the look is meant to look super casual -- and pull back into a ponytail. Twist the end of the ponytail around the base and secure with bobby pins. 4. Pull a couple of random strands loose in front and arrange them to frame your face. See More Tyra Banks Hairstyles
