Messy hairstyles for perfectly-imperfect tresses every day
Monday: High bun
Yes, it’s the day that shall not be named. But instead of resigning yourself to the Monday blues, you need to get yourself a hairdo that’ll kick off your week in the best way possible!
This everyday look needs to be on your style list when it comes to messy hairstyles. A high bun is just as perfect for smart office wear and is sure to stay put all day long, meaning you’ll #slay from dawn to dusk. Credit: @morganhairco
Editor’s tip: Now we’re sure you know how to master a high bun, but did you know that by spritzing your tresses with a dry shampoo (like VO5 Volume Dry Shampoo), your bun will have extra staying power? Yep it’s true, it’s not just for saving greasy strands!
Tuesday: Macaron buns
Okay, the worst part of the week is over, so now it’s time to experiment with something a bit more refreshing. Macaron buns are 2017’s surprise hair trend and we couldn’t be more thankful for this dreamy hairstyle if we tried. Credit: @kristin_ess
Ready to be Parisian chic? Then you need to grab the TONI&GUY Matt Texture Dry Shampoo to build up the texture and body of your tresses. To style, follow the same method you would to create space buns, but rock them lower at the nape of your neck. Et voila!
With the help of a texturising spray and a pretty hair clip, you can create this messy hairstyle in a matter of seconds. Perfect for the office to office party, this mid-week, Hump Day hairstyle is one fuss-free look we can’t live without! Credit: @thebeautydept
Thrusday: Half-up, half-down
Happy Friday Eve! To celebrate the forthcoming weekend, try your hand at some half-up, half-down hairstyles, all of which are having a major moment and have fast become the hottest hairstyle to be seen wearing.
Friday: Textured bun
Thank the hair gods it’s the end of the week! But with a collective sigh of relief comes a flurry of social activities to attend. Whatever comes your way this Friday, we suggest giving this texture bun a whirl.
Editor’s tip: Spray hair with the VO5 Dry Backcomb Spray to create big, voluminous updos with all the texture you can get from using a backcombing brush.
Saturday: Space buns
Party time! Unless you have been living under a rock, you will know that space buns have had a major revival since they were last worn in the ’90s – Gwen Stefani we are looking at you in particular. So embrace your inner retro kid and work the space buns trend now. Credit: @ohmygeee
Tip: Leave loose strands to fall around your face for an undone, casual finish to this messy hairstyle. Go on, do it for ‘gram!
Sunday: Tousled bun stitch
Sundays go one of two ways: either out and about having brunch with friends, or wrapped in a blanket and binge watching your new fave TV show – there is no in-between, here.
Such days call for a does-it-all look, and we think we have the messy hairstyle for you… This tousled bun stitch is the ideal undone updo to keep your tresses under control, while still showing off the length of your hair. Credit: @kristin_ess
