I've been really into buns these days. They are sophisticated and easy as ABC. They can be done on messy or straightened hair and both ways give you a refined appearance. See the video below of how I stumbled onto my textured bun technique.
You can see some of the heat damage in my hair in the picture below even though my hair was blow-dried about 3 days before this picture was taken.

Here are a few easy steps to creating this bun.
Start with stretched hair or a twist-out or braid-out.
Separate hair with fingers to detangle large bumps and knots.
Pull hair into a ponytail using your hand only to smooth
Loosely roll hair under creating a bun-like shape. Add pins where needed to secure the bun and you're done.
Remember - Avoid using a comb or brush as much as possible. The size of your bun will vary depending on the length of your hair.
