Buns are one of those classic hairstyles that never look dated and can be adapted to suit any occasion. You might opt for a sleek bun at the office or a braided bun for a romantic dinner, and for everywhere in between? How about a messy bun? Why try the messy bun? With the rise in popularity of tousled, unkempt hairstyles on both the runway and the red carpet, the messy bun has become a hairstyle staple. It's styled just enough to make you look put together without making it look like you've tried too hard, it's easy to achieve, and requires very few styling tools/products! So, if you want to get the look, then simply follow the five easy steps in our tutorial...
Starting with dry hair, spray styling spray throughout from the roots and along the lengths. As you go, scrunch the hair to create body.
Rough dry with your hairdryer whilst continuing to scrunch your hair.
Smooth the hair into a high ponytail and then twist the hair until it spirals into a bun. Use a hairgrip (or several) to secure the hair in place.
Using your fingers, gently tease some hair out of the bun for a messy, wild effect. Also do the same with the hair along your scalp to give the style some extra volume.
Spray lightly with hairspray to fix the style in place. Shape the hair just slightly while the hairspray dries and you're finished! Now you know how to get the messy bun hairstyle, there's no excuse not to try it! Happy styling!
