Yes, I have FINALLY learned to do a messy bun. I think I am the last woman on earth to figure it out.
I went to YouTube and searched through the videos. (Hey, I learned to knit from YouTube, why not learn to do hair?) I found quite a few videos, and all of them had different ways of accomplishing this fashion must. Frankly, most of them were a lot more messy than they were cute, in my opinion. I finally found one that is easy to do, and looks pretty cute. I tried it in my own hair and loved it. (If I didn’t have such a hard time taking a picture of the back of my own head, I would add one in here!)
Brooklyn also loved my messy bun, so I told her I would do one in her hair. I think it turned out pretty adorable on her. Her hair is way different than mine, so hers has a different look, even though it is the same process.
In case you are actually the last person on earth to learn the messy bun, I recommend YouTube, and look for those that use 2 elastics, and only a few bobby pins.
