There’s a bun for every occasion. You can choose from sophisticated bun hairstyles as prom updos. You have your low buns for casual days. You even have the ballerina bun for when you want to look sleek and neat. Messy ‘dos are also in, so you might want to create the messy bun for long hair if you want to look chill but styled well. Here’s how.
When your hair has dried, put your hair in a messy ponytail using your fingers. No comb or brush necessary—you want to nail the messy look. Secure with a scrunchy. Then, spritz TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Spray on your ponytail to protect it from heat.
Take a small section of hair from your ponytail and wrap it around the barrel of your curling wand. Hold it for a few seconds, and then release it. Do this until all sections of your ponytail have been curled. This will add volume to your bun.
Make a bun
Finger-comb your curls to loosen them up a bit. Then, gather your hair and twist it loosely around the base of your ponytail. Secure it with bobby pins.
Pull your bun at the sides to create more volume. Pull some hair strands at your hairline and nape as well to complete the messy look.
You may be sporting a messy hairstyle but you don’t look like a mess at all! In fact, you look effortlessly chic. You can wear a messy bun for long hair during casual Fridays at work. You can also put your hair in a messy bun if you’re going to have a busy day running errands. For students, the messy bun for long hair is also a great hairstyle to wear to school.
