Buns are a classic and timeless hairstyle and a messy version is the newest take on an easy, laid back up-do. So you’re probably wondering how to do a messy bun and master the new take on the classic style.

Come rain or shine, this is the ideal hairstyle for the office party, but still works right through the year to a summer’s evening BBQ to – and wit

1.Start by brushing hair careful to avoid knots and tangles

2.If you want you can use a little bit of volumising root spray or a spritz of your best dry shampoo to texturise the hair

3.Next create a high ponytail right on the top at the back of the head, this doesn’t have to be too neat but try to get it right up to the crown of the head. Tip: If you have really long or thick hair and find it tricky to create a high pony, tip your head upside down to make sure you can get you pony high enough.

4.Once you have a high pony divide into two sections and use your fingers to twist the hair around into a bun securing with a bobble.

5. You will now have a tight ballerina style twisted bun. We like making things look a little messier so this is the time to start pulling out a few strands around the face and loosening up the bun to add volume.

6.Using bobby pins you can play around the shape of your bun to add more dimension. Finish with a light hairspray to keep all the strands in place.
