Hairstyles: Messy Bun


First things first: put your hair in a NEAT pony tail. Bangs out: tie your bangs with the extra elastic before making the pony tail.

Make sure it's tied, then take your finger and twist the pony tail around it.

Now, take it in your fist, the one with the elastic around the wrist, and slide the elastic on, twisting it two or three times, depending on the thickness of your hair.

Bangs out: take the pony tail out if you haven't already. Take your brush and brush your hair to one side. If you want, take a clip and clip your bangs to the side.

You now have a messy bun. Play around with it to make it even messier, if you wish, or leave it the way it is.
