My favorite way to put my hair up is to bend over and gather my hair at the top of my head, in the center, not by my forehead, and make a ponytail, and then form a bun, but the kind where its like pulling the ponytail halfway through, not a twisted bun. Then the mid-ends of my curls are out and I pull out strands and loosen it up, and arrange it so it looks like a fancy curly up do. I either go out like that, or add some accessories like a headband or flowers/bows/etc. You can also put your hair in a ponytail and then braid the loose hair, and wrap it in a bun and use bobby pins to secure it. It's really hard to describe these without showing you lol but I hope you get the picture.
