One of the easiest high-impact looks you can create in a matter of minutes is a messy bun hairstyle.
You will need:
- A comb or brush
- A hair elastic
- Bobby pins
Begin by brushing your hair out before pulling it back into a high ponytail and securing with a hair elastic.
Spritz your ponytail liberally with hairspray and then tease or backcomb it to add extra volume. You should end up with a ponytail that looks more like a hair explosion on top of your head. If it's neat and tidy, you're doing it wrong.
Split the pony in two and wind both sections around in a circle - so they kind of chase each other - to create the bun shape. Secure with hair pins and apply a little more hairspray when you're confident the bun is going to stay put.
For a final messy flourish, tease the hair on the top of your head (the bit pulled tight stretching back from your forehead) with your fingers to get a truly unkempt look.
