You have to tie your hair in a ponytail with an elastic band. Leave your bangs as they are.

Now put the donut band in the base of the ponytail, let your hair fall around it, and cover it completely.

You have to make your hair into a ponytail and leave the bigger flick/bang as it is. Then take a small bunch of hair and wrap it around the elastic band; it should cover it adequately.

Then keep wrapping the hair and make sure it is not tight. It should be loose. Then pin it, take the flick/bang, and pin it in the bun.
