How to do a Loose or Messy Hair Bun

It’s amazing what a hair style can convey in terms of energy and mood. Hair can also greatly affect how others perceive you, as well as your level of self-confidence. Hair is a natural accessory that can be quickly and easily manipulated into nearly any form. However, some styles are certainly more complex than others and require a relatively copious amount of time to create. Other styles can be done in an instant, such as a bun.

Ballerinas, for example, commonly tie their hair into a tight and efficient bun that leaves no room for fly-aways or loose tendrils. However, a messy bun can be just as striking and lovely, and the best part is that it takes a fraction of the time.

A loose bun is flirty, fun and low maintenance. One way to achieve the look is by gathering the hair into a bundle and securing it, with an elastic, into a standard pony tail. Then you just loosely wrap the hair around the base of the ponytail and secure it with another elastic hair tie or a few bobby pins. It’s perfectly fine if you miss a few strands, as that will only heighten the effect of the look. The purpose of a loose bun is to give you added character and dimension. You can also just tie the hair up as if you were going to make a ponytail, but leave the bundle of hair through the last loop of the elastic, rather than pulling it all the way free. The result will be a bun with a length of hair sprouting out of the elastic.

Somewhat messy hair will contrast against a made-up face to create a striking, natural look that will even appear sexy and inviting. However, you don’t want to go overboard on the make-up either. A bit of color on the cheeks and some eyeliner is all that’s really necessary. A subtle gloss on the lips will also finish the look, making you appear dewy and fresh.The novelty of a messy bun is that it’s so fast. If you’re running late because you overslept or became distracted, swiftly securing your hair into a bun will eliminate the stress of a bad hair day and alleviate any anxiety about primping and preening. A bun often looks more alluring when strands of hair are left free, so experiment with your hair and remember that trying to get everything “perfect” can actually be counterproductive.
