Trend Testers: Messy Hair Bun Tutorial
With spring just around the corner, it’s time to try a fresh hairstyle that will help you shake off the winter blues. For this week’s trend testers, we put together this messy hair bun tutorial modeled by the lovely Marie. This look can be dressed up for a day at the office or dressed down for a comfortable day around the house. Finish with a bright floral scarf to add a touch of spring to your look.

What you’ll need:
  • A small clip
  • Bobby pins
  • Hair scarf
  • Lightweight styling cream
  • Soft hold hairspray

Prepare for this style by smoothing a styling cream through your tresses to fight stubborn frizz. We chose Fekkai Coiff Perfecteur Anti-Frizz Silkening Crème because its lightweight formula will minimize frizz without detracting from the messy hair bun.

1. Pull all your hair to one side, over the shoulder. Clip the hair on the sides of your head in place to establish your where your messy style will sit.
2. Loosely twist the rest of your tresses, rolling your hair to form a messy bun shape.
3. Carefully secure the style with a few bobby pins. Make sure the small clip you started with is hidden beneath your bun.
4. Add a floral hair scarf for the perfect spring look.

Give your finished style a final check in the mirror. Pull apart pieces that look too structured and pin back any crazy flyaways. If needed, you can apply a quick spritz of soft hold hairspray to keep everything in place.
