Why is it that messy buns are harder to do than regular buns? The disheveled, effortless, “undone” look is way harder to achieve than people think. I wish I could look like I rolled out of bed with great messy hair, but I can never seem to get it right. Luckily I found a fool-proof way to get the perfect messy bun every time. Here is how!a7db65471b70e4a4a95d6f4545af32fa

  1. Pull your hair into a loose ponytail as high or low as you want. Don’t worry about smoothing out bumps or slicking your hair back, you want it to look imperfect.
  2. Separate the hair in your pony into 2 sections and tease them. Teasing is the key! It will change your bun game by giving you texture and volume.
  3. Take your 2 teased sections and wrap the hair in opposite directions like you are creating a topknot. Instead of pinning your hair neatly into a bun, pin bobby pins near the ends of your hair, leaving the ends splay out around the bun. This gives it the messy look! Pull the bun apart a little with your hands to mess it up even more.

The best part about messy buns is that they work better on dirty hair, so they work great on second-day hair, AKA you can sleep in longer instead of washing your hair! 🙂

The Perfect Messy Bun

When it comes to hair, you normally don’t think of the words “perfect” and “messy” in the same sentences. Well, a messy bun is the perfect hair for a lazy day when you’re still trying to look good!  Although it looks effortless, it actually takes a little skill to achieve the perfect messy bun.Chelsea Crockett- messy bun

Start by teasing your hair, even at the roots, to create texture. You can add moose to make your hair coarser.  Once your hair is teased and feels full, pull it in a high ponytail and start twisting it.  Once it is in a lose twist, start coiling it around your head to create a bun.  Loosely secure the bun with a ponytail holder and then tightly secure it with bobby pins.  Lastly, pull pieces of hair around your face out of the bun to make it look messier.  You can even move your fingers through your scalp and the bun to make more pieces fall out.  Remember, this bun is perfectly “un-perfect”.  Finish off with some hairspray and voilà!

Now that your perfect messy bun is complete you are ready to go! I hope this simple tutorial helps you achieve this look a little easier!

Love you all,

Chelsea

Wanna know what the fall 2013 hair trends are? Good, cuz I am about to tell you!

Messy Beach Bun: These buns look effortless and wind-blown! You can achieve this look by sectioning off the hair in front of your head (where your bangs would be) and pulling the rest of your hair up into a ponytail just below the crown. Twist the pony into a bun and secure it with bobby pins. Next, curl the hair in the front loosely and then randomly pin them around the bun in the back.chelsea crockett messy bun

Upside Down French Braid: I am in love with this trend! It is so stinkin cute. It is not as hard as it looks! Just flip your head upside down and start the braid at the nape of your neck. Braid it until you get to your crown. Gather the rest of your hair and combine it all into a ponytail. Wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Viola!upside down french braid chelsea crockett

Braided Headband: This style is so classy! How do you do it? First, part your hair down the middle. Then make a small braid on each ear starting behind each ear. Pull them over each other and pin them tightly against the top of the head.chelsea crockett braided headband

I hope these work for ya!
