I get questions about my messy bun all the time, and I’ve always been hesitant to do a tutorial. Why? Because this is my lazy go-to – and I never really knew how to do a step by step on how to make your hair into a rat’s nest. I tried demonstrating it with photos, but it’s really difficult to do your hair in slow-mo and use a remote at the same time. I ended up just doing a video. This is basically just like the easy little bun/ponytail hybrid that every gal has done at some time in her life…just messier. Way messier. It’s just the way I like it, because you don’t have to worry about upkeep throughout the day. Hope the video helps, but if not…I’ll try again;)The volume powder spray I use in the video is: Sachajuan Volume Powder.

p.s. See my past hair tutorial here.

EDIT: I just realized that when I uploaded the video, it cropped a lot of overhead space – you can barely see what I’m doing with my hair! Does anyone know how I can fix this (or if I can upload a full version of it to another site)? Uploaded a new, uncropped version.

    I love your bangs, do you by any chance have a tutorial on how you style them, and maybe a description on what to ask for? I have side swept bangs but I can never style them the way I want them to be.

      I don’t, because it’s kind of a haphazard back and forth rough blow dry. I’m sorry! If I can figure out how to properly document it, I will. I asked for thick, textured side swept bangs.
