A messy bun is my go-to lazy hair. Having thick curly hair, having it down often leaves me feeling like a lion (I am hoping to get it cut soon so hopefully that will solve my problem. I can't wait!) . I also hate having my hair in my face most of the time so I end up just throwing it back into a messy bun. Now the typical 'messy bun' is usually pretty high and looks cute and messy. However, this does not work for me I have quite a lot of thick hair. This means that in an attempt to create this cute bun the whole messy aspect just doesn't work and the actual bun is big and heavy meaning that gravity takes over pulling it down. In result, it pulls on my head and creates this whole 'flat on top and big on the back' kind of vibe. Definitely not cute.
So, I have discovered the perfect way to create my own messy bun that looks pretty cute and doesn't pull at all. It is a very basic low messy bun that is great for when you just need tog et your hair out of your face. In order to create this, you take a hair band on your wrist and just pull your hair into a low ponytail. However, when pulling the hair through, don't pull it through the entire way. Then, twist the band and repeat the last process until the band is right. Super easy, super cute and it literally takes 10 seconds.
Here are a few pics of the end product...
I hope you enjoyed reading about my messy bun and maybe you fancy giving this a go too. To make this a little less messy you can pin the bun into shape or you can just leave it as is, the choice is yours.
Have a lovely weekend and I will speak to you soon.
