7 Gorgeous Messy Bun Hairstyles for Every Hair Length
There's nothing more cool-girl casual than the messy bun. Not only does it look effortless on all hair types, it's actually effortless to DIY. But of course, not every messy bun is created equal, and if you want your messy bun to look a bit more…intentional, there is an art to creating one.
According to celebrity hairstylist Bridget Brager, the best practice is to use either a flatiron or curling iron to boost texture before each messy bun, or use either tool at the end of your style to add polished bends and waves around the face and at the nape of the neck. "These pieces are what make the bun feel unique, so don't be afraid to let them drop out and be seen," she says. "I love T3's Lucea ID ($249; amazon.com), and Curl ID ($249; amazon.com) hot tools, which allow you to set your heat settings based on your hair texture, length, and color treatments, reducing your risk of heat damage."
