How To Style

  1. Apply a volumizing product of your choice to damp hair, concentrating at the roots. Spray a heat protectant spray and blow dry, using a low heat setting.
  2. Part your hair a little off the centre.
  3. Pull as much of your hair as you can into a low ponytail at the nape, and tie with a hair tie.
  4. Divide the ponytail into three sections and tease to add volume to each.
  5. Take a section, wrap it around the base of the pony and keep it in place with the help of bobby pins. Do the same with the other two sections.
  6. Spray a strong-hold hairspray on a hair brush and brush through to avoid wayward strands. Use a medium to strong-hold hairspray to set your hair and keep your bun from falling apart.

For strong and hydrated hair

Extremely versatile, the messy bun can be as casual or classy as you want it to be. It is easy to recreate and perfect for just about every occasion.

Products Used

  • Texturizing spray
  • Teasing comb

How To Style

  1. Apply a texturizing spray to your hair and scrunch gently.
  2. Run your fingers through your hair to comb and pull as much of it as you can into a ponytail at the crown. Make sure that you do not use a brush or a comb because the less structured your hair looks, the better it is. If the hair tie cannot hold up all your hair, thats fine. Loose tendrils work in favor of this hairstyle.
  3. Divide the ponytail into two sections, and, using a teasing comb, add volume to them. Hide the teased portion by smoothing out the top layer.
  4. Wrap one section around the base of the ponytail, and secure it in place with the help of bobby pins. Then, wrap the other section around the first but in the opposite direction and pin. To keep the bobby pins from falling off, coat them with hairspray before using them to secure your bun.

3. Quirky Faux Bun

Products Used

How To Style

  1. Start by applying a volumizing product to your hair.
  2. Gather your hair at one side, close to the temple. Secure with a hair tie, and use bobby pins around the ponytail to keep the shorter strands in place.
  3. This hairstyle requires the use of pomade. So, to spread it through your hair evenly, spray some water on the ponytail.
  4. Take a small amount of pomade between your palms and spread it through the length of the pony. Curl your hair towards the base of the ponytail, so that the resulting shape resembles a bun. Use a little more pomade to smoothen the rest of your hair.
  5. Allow the pomade to set, and cut off the hair tie.
