If you’re looking for an upgraded version of a messy bun that’s just as easy to create but is a bit chicer then this is the style for you. Separate your hair into a middle part and pull all of your hair back into a low messy bun. Pull a few strands out in the front to make the look just a little messier.

7. Layered Bun

Layer your bun with an oversized twist.

Start this easy updo by creating a ballerina bun by gathering your hair into a ponytail. Take sections of the ponytail and twist them around the base and pin in place to start creating the bun. When you pin the twisted pieces of hair, loosen the different layers of the bun to create this oversized twisted look. Straighten your strands before you create the style and prep them with Dove Style+Care Smooth & Shine Heat-Protection Spray for an extra dose of high shine.

8. Low and Chic Easy Updos
