The messy bun is a style which will always be chic, on trend and fashionable. Perfect for
those lazy days, those second-day hair days, those hot summer days, or those days when
you want to showcase a little shoulder. There are a number of ways you can work the bun;
whether that be a messy bun or a neat ballerina bun, so it’s essential that you master the
art and get informed on this sexy style. These messy bun tricks will help you to master your own personal messy bun!
The bun works with pretty much any hair type. Ideally, it’s better for longer locks, however
any length past the shoulders will work especially with handy-dandy bobby pins to fix any stray
hairs. One way to create a great messy bun that will stay in all day is to begin by tying your
hair in a high pony. You may want to back-comb your hair slightly before you begin, so that
you achieve a little bit of height and volume in your pony. Carefully tease the hair out of
the pony and loosen slightly if you want a less preen look. Then, create a messy bun with
your hands by scrunching your hair into a messy ball, then fix with another hair bobble.
Loosen the hairs and pull out slightly, and with bobby pins fold the bun hairs in and attach
to your head. The key to this style is keeping it messy; make sure the bun is big, and you
can play around with bobby pins and figure out how tight or loose you want your messy
bun to stay.
Finish your bun with hairspray and using a mirror, check the back of your bun to ensure it
sits how you like. Now get messy bun’ing!
