In contention, the messy bun is the simple updo to pull away (especially convenient option when you’re working with second day or post-workout hair.) But the truth is, this fortunate, I didn’t-try-at-all style requires a little bit skill, which is totally depends on the length of your hair. We have done some research on this topic and got ‘em’ covered step by step tips for perfecting the messy bun in 3 steps.
The Perfect Messy Bun: Short, Sweet, and Flyaway-Free
Step 1. First, pull your hair into loose ponytail as high or as low as you’d like it. Do not use comb or worry about your strands being flawlessly slicked back- the look is effortless.
Step 2. Segregate the hair in your ponytail into two or three sections and tease. Teasing is the key step that totally restyle our bun game—it gives you the volume and messy texture you need to pull off the look that protect your bun from entering ballerina territory.
Step 3. Segregate your teased hair into two sections and enfold the hair in opposite directions, as you would when making a topknot. But, instead of pinning your hair nicely in, secure your hair with a bobby pin about an inch from the bottom of your strands, leaving the ends to fray around your bun, creating a messy effect. If you feel like the body of your bun is extremely tight, gently pull it apart with your hands or the end of a comb. We also like to pull a few rogue pieces out around the face.
MDC Quick Tip: One of our favorite things about pretty buns is they work well only on dirty hair (snooze button, am I right?) but if your hair is clean (not frizzy), and you want to pull off the look, spray your hair with dry shampoo to add some texture and grip. And there you have it – effortless style that’s actually easy to achieve.
