Hair Tutorial : The Messy Bun

When the seasons turn and monsoons come along, they bring along with them a host of conditions. While the season is a blissful and scenic time, that isn’t always true and hair problems are just one of them. We’ve previously spoken about ways to prevent and treat monsoon hair problems, some even with home remedies. Our fun bun hair tutorial showed you how to create an updo that is both classy and quick. Today, we will guide you through the messy bun tutorial which is the perfect casual updo when effortless style is your choice.

You will need:

  • A comb
  • A thin hair tie
  •  Bobby pins

      Step 1: Lay your hair flat downwards. The more volume your hair has, the better it will serve the purpose of the tutorial. 

Step2: If your hair tends to be of the finer nature, then this step is a must. Take the foremost section at the crown of your head and back comb it. This will created volume and your messy bun will have more texture to it.

Step3: Let your hair fall downwards naturally. Then gather the hair at the base of the neck into a low ponytail.

Step 4: Once gathered, smoothen the hair and bring it all together, keeping the hair tie in one hand.

Step 5: You may then use the hair tie in such a way to tie the ponytail that it is half tied up, only by its ends sections.

Step 6: Once done, it should look as above. Allow for any layers to stray out the ponytail as well.

Step 7: Use the hair tie to fasten the base of the messy bun in such a way that it is tight and secure.

Step 8: Secure any stray sections of hair that are coming out of the ponytail by twisting them backward to create a tight curl.

Step 9: Once you’ve created twisted back the section, fasten it in place with a bobby pin and cover the half bun you have tied. Carry out the same for each section of hair.

And your messy bun is complete, looking effortless and chic as ever!
