You Will Need
- Hair that hasn’t been washed for 24 hours
- A brush
- Bobby pins in the color of your hair
- Hair spray
- Dry shampoo or hair mousse (optional)
- An elastic band (optional)
Start with day-old hair
A messy bun tends to come undone if your hair is freshly washed, so try this trick on a no-shampoo day.
Brush your hair back
Brush your hair to the back of your head and gather it into a ponytail in your hands.
Twist the hair
Twist the ponytail around its own center, forming a loose bun.
Anchor the bun
Anchor the bun with bobby pins in the same color as your hair, letting a few stray pieces slip out.
Spritz the bun with hair spray.
Gently pull a few face-framing pieces out of the bun.
