Messy Hairstyles and Messy Hair Buns for Everyday Styling

The messy hairstyle is the perfect solution to second day hair. A tousled and messy hair bun is great after a night out and there are several ways to do it right. And, there's something extremely sexy and free of any constraint in tousled 'dos, whether it's an updo style or fun and loose curly messy hair.

A messy style looks great on any length and type of hair – short or long, straight or curly, thick and flexible or fine and wispy. Read on to find out how to create this timeless and chic look with minimal effort and still be a stylicious maven with these several looks.

Messy Hair High Bun Styles

STEP 1: Use Love Beauty and Planet Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Dry Shampoo into the roots of curled hair. And, then use a comb and tease the top section at the point where you want the high bun to sit. Roughly tease the rest of the hair with a wide-tooth comb.

STEP 2: Mist the hair with Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold and Frizz Control Hair Spray to keep the bun in place. After the spray is dried--hold your hair loosely, pull it all up to the center top of your head.

STEP 3: Fold the hair over once and wrap the hair tie twice around the base of the hair to secure the bun. Gently stretch the bun apart at the top and bottom to loosen the shape.

STEP 4: Slide your fingers under the hair above your ears and gently lift to soften the head shape.

Messy Hairstyle with Side Bun

STEP 1: Get your hair ready with Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Dry Shampoo.

STEP 2: Sweep all your hair to one side and secure your hair in a side ponytail with tie.

STEP 3: Create a hole above the elastic, flip the ponytail up and through the hole and pull it a portion through the hole. Make sure to pin down the bun.

STEP 4: Keep pulling out hair above the pony and pull in the remaining ends and pin down into the bun.

STEP 5: If there are excessive flyaways, spritz with hairspray and gently pull back towards the topknot with your fingertips.
