A messy bun is a popular and easy hairstyle that can be achieved in just a few simple steps. Here’s how to do a messy bun:
Start with dry hair: A messy bun works best on second-day hair or hair that hasn’t been freshly washed. If your hair is clean and slippery, you can add some texture by using a dry shampoo or texturizing spray.
Gather your hair into a high ponytail: Flip your head upside down and gather your hair into a high ponytail on the top of your head. Use a hair tie to secure the ponytail in place.
Twist and wrap the ponytail: Twist the ponytail and wrap it around the base to create a bun shape. Use bobby pins to secure the bun in place, tucking in any loose ends as you go.
Pull out some strands: Use your fingers to gently pull out some strands of hair around your face and the nape of your neck to create a messy, undone look.
Secure with hairspray: To keep your messy bun in place all day, spritz some hairspray over the top to hold any flyaways in place.
And there you have it – a quick and easy messy bun that looks effortless and stylish. You can customize your messy bun by adding accessories such as headbands or hair clips or by adjusting the height or size of the bun.
