To Pineapple your hair is to create a high bun by lifting all your hair upwards and securing it loosely with a large hair tie. This style is ideal if your hair is prone to simple tangle and long. If your hair is of a more complex texture and prone to shrinkage then the French braids or twists would be a better option.
