Last all day Messy Bun

I love finishing a 'do with a messy bun but find that it is usually falling out by the afternoon. This is the only way I have found to style a messy bun that will last the entire day.

To start, make a high side pony.

For a little fun, we added colored hair to the pony.

Next, divide the pony into three sections.

Take one section and make a loop.

Secure the loop with a clear elastic (looking back, I wish at this point I would have added a little gel to keep the flyaways down).

Make loops with the other two sections.

Continue to make loops with the rest of the hair.

Add a few booby pins to secure the loops in place covering any visible elastics.

That is it! This took me ten minutes and lasted all day!


  1. The coloured hair really does make the whole thing POP! Very pretty.

  2. Cute! and the flyaways are just fine - after all, it's a messy bun! :D
