Messy Bun 101

Messy buns are all the rage right now even on the runway! I'm here to show you just how easy the messy bun can be! Here are a few of my favorite celebrity inspirations! 

Just like the title these are messy and I know it, but soooo easy and so fun to spice up your dirty hair! 
The key to messy buns is that they are MESSY, don't obsess about making things perfect because they aren't supposed to be! 

Let's start with the low messy bun! Starting left to right! 

1. Put hair into a loose low ponytail
2. Twist the pony tail
3. Wrap the twist into a bun and pin in place 
4. Spilt the bottom section into two sections, twist the section while holding it up.
5. Wrap around the bun and pin in place
6. Repeat step 5 to the right side as well. 

And ta-da! You're done! Like I said! Keep it messy! Feel free to pull on pieces and on the top to add volume! 

Side messy with some twisted texture! Be creative with this one! Change up the twist with a braid for a different look!! 

1. Start with a far side part 
2. Twist braid your bangs. If you don't know how to do this I have a tutorial on my "all about bangs" post. But for a quick refresher you are going to section your hair into two sections. One above the other. Twist them forward first and then cross them over each other going the other direction. To make it a French twist just add hair to the section before you twist. Repeat until your twist goes all the way down. Finish it off with a clear elastic and put it aside. 
3. Bring all your hair to the side and ponytail. Don't pull your hair all the way through. 
4. Push the ponytail to your head and pin in place. 
5. Grab the front twist and wrap it around the bun and pin in place. 
Beautiful! Just like the previous picture pull on hair to make it as messy as you want it! ( this look can also look pretty styled more sleek for a different look) 

High messy bun. SO EASY. 

1. Start with your hair in a top knot on the crown of your head. 
2. Pull the top knot up to make it loose. 
3. Pull the top knot apart and press against your head and pin until it's secure. 
4. Pull this one like crazy and make it messy and big!!
