As stylish as it is practical – what more could you want from an easy updo?
What you’ll need
Perfect for everyday, you can wear an easy messy bun out to brunch, around the office, or out for after-work drinks. Plus, this versatile ‘do is easy and quick to create, whether you have short or long hair.
Beauty vlogger Nikki Phillippi is ready to show you that messy buns are just as stylish as they are practical. Watch her video to create your own perfectly undone bun.
Creating an easy messy bun
Before you start: A happy scalp equals happy hair, and happy hair equals a drop-dead gorgeous updo (because you’ll need to do deeper hair parts, you’ll want your scalp to look in tip-top condition). To care for your scalp, wash and condition your tresses with the TRESemmé Renewal Hair & Scalp Nourish & Renew Shampoo (£4.99*) and Conditioner (£4.99*). Formulated with tea tree extract and sunflower seed oil, this wash and care duo will leave you with a healthy-feeling scalp.
To create an easy messy bun, it’s especially important to use a product that will help add volume to your hair. Nikki recommends applying the Toni&Guy Glamour Volume Plumping Whip to towel-dried hair to help add body to limp locks.
Brush and section your hair.
Create a rope braid.
Secure and Repeat.
Create a low ponytail.
With the rest of your hair, create a low side ponytail and secure it with a hairband. Lightly tug some sections of your hair at the root to loosen the ponytail slightly. As Nikki’s demonstrated, this style can also be achieved on super short tresses, too!
Set your 'do.
