Different styled messy buns
There are a ton of things you can do to dress up and add uniqueness to this hairstyle but here are some ideas if you need some inspiration.
This is a messy bun worn loosely on either side of your head. This can be worn high up but the most common is low.
This is my favorite! You can curl your hair or use day old curls even if they are falling out this still looks super pretty.
This is when you just take all your messy hair and literally just pile it up all on top. This is a great casual version of this style.
Adding a poof
This is a great idea if you have bangs. Especially if your hair was styled the day before or hasn't been washed this will hide any grease and looks great paired with a messy bun.
Twisted or french braided back
This is when you twist or braid your hair on the sides before creating the bun. This makes the messy bun look really elegant.
This is the most common accessory with this style. Adding a headband is a quick way to add some flare to this style.
