How To Make A Messy Bun

A Quick And Easy Messy Bun Hairstyle

Quite honestly, making a messy bun has always been hard for me! I know it sounds dumb because the whole point is that a messy bun is supposed to be effortless. Well, for some reason I've always had a problem making them and have had a hard time finding a technique that will work for me without a lot of struggle.

You may remember we posted a messy bun for long hair quite awhile ago. I'm thinking messy buns are much harder to make with long hair. Ever since the princess got her hair cut, these buns have been much more cooperative for me. :) After some experimenting (and some failures) I think we've finally found a method that seems to work almost every time for us.

Yes, this video is probably not needed for most of you (who I'm sure have been messy bun pros for a long time.) But, if anyone out there struggles with making a messy bun like me... maybe this will help?

These clips can be found online at Hair Flair Boutique (look for "Bendini" on the left sidebar.) I'm not sure if these are available in stores yet or not... I haven't had time to look, but you may be able to find them in stores where Scunci accessories are sold.

I had big plans for a cute new Easter Hairstyle that I was going to post this week, but I'm not sure I'm going to have time for it. If I don't get around to it, feel free to browse through a few hairdos we have done in the past for Easter Sunday by clicking here: Easter Hairstyles

  1. You are not alone! I am messy bun challenged, too! I have tried over and over with little success, but get a good one on occasion. Belle's hair is really long, though, like you said.

  3. That looks much better than any messy bun I've ever made. Btw, I did the never ending frenchbraid in my daughter's hair this morning. Looks SO cute. Wondering how it'll look when she gets back from preschool.
