Easy Messy Bun Tutorial

During the summer, my hairstyles are much more relaxed and easy. I wear my hair curly or in a messy bun a lot. Many times, when I wear my hair in a messy bun, I am asked how to do it. I think it is easier to show someone how to do it than to explain it, so here is my take on the messy bun…

It is pretty simple. To start, I just added a little volume on top. I don’t like my hair to be really big, but I don’t like it to be stuck to my head so I give myself a little volume. Then I put my hair in a ponytail. On the last loop, I don’t pull my hair all the way through the elastic so that it curves around like the picture shows.

Then I take pieces of my hair and stuff them back through the elastic. Continue doing this until you have created the basic shape of how you want your messy bun to look. It will look different every time.
After you have the basic shape, you can go back and put a few bobby pins in place to help it stay where you want it. Add a little hairspray to keep everything in tact.
You are done! Easy peasy.
Now go and enjoy the last leg of your lazy summer!
