How to make a messy bun

Nobody wants to seem like they’re trying too hard. Maybe that’s why looking hyper-polished is out and looking casually disheveled is in. We’re not suggesting that you actually roll up to a party with bedhead, but faking a little messy, devil-may-care style is all the rage these days. So how can you make this style your own?

A messy bun starts with textured hair. If you’ve got natural waves or curls, skip the blowdryer and let your hair air-dry while you sleep for tresses that’ll make for a perfect bun in the morning.

Have pin-straight locks? Add a little attitude by infusing some gel into your tresses and pulling wet hair into a loose braid while it dries. When you let it down in the morning, you’ll have yourself some waves.

Now that your hair is ready, it’s time to make the bun. Gather hair in your hand and pile it haphazardly onto the back of your head. Secure with a hair tie, then pin any loose sections back. Pull out a few pieces to frame your face, and voila! You’re ready to hit the mall, the park or even a fancy restaurant with your new style. And yes, the look even works for a hot date!

Dahlia Moon is the quintessential Philly girl. Her obsessions include Geno’s cheese steaks, the Rocky statue and of course Phillies baseball. Her grandmother once told her that “your hair is your crowning glory.” From that point on she made sure that her ‘do was always done. Mostly because all she heard was the crown part and she thought her grandma was calling her a princess. When that dream didn’t actually come to fruition, she made it her business to educate other women in keeping their “crowning glory” impeccably coiffed. Her mission now is to keep women “in the know” regarding the latest and greatest hair trends, because every woman should feel like a princess.
