1. Bring Your Hair Into A High Ponytail

To make a messy bun, gather all of your hair away from your face and neck and hold it up at the top of your head. Bending your head down and tying your hair that way allows you to fasten it as high as you want. Leave a few loose hairs out of your ponytail to frame your face if desired. Keep the high ponytail knotted loosely and skip the brush, depending on how messy a bun you want, it will add to the relaxed look.

2. Twist Your Hair

Twist Your Hair

This is the most essential part. Twist your strands till they're taut once your hair is gathered in your high ponytail. Then, to construct your high bun, wrap this long twist around the base of your ponytail (where your hair meets the back of your head). This could take a few seconds depending on the length of your mane. Wrap as tightly or as loosely as your heart desires.

Tie a hair tie or elastic around the bun to keep it in place, then use bobby pins around the sides to keep stray hairs in place. You can make it your own by adding a quirky hair scrunchie, a flirty bow, or patterned hair elastic that matches your clothing. The options are infinite!
