How to Volumize a Messy Bun

The messy bun is a hairstyle that is great for all types of occasions and events.

It is a simple up-do that you can do yourself at home.

From an elegant wedding to quick "run to the corner store" look, the messy bun offers all lengths of hair a style that is fast and easy to create.

You may need to try out several different ways to create the perfect look for your hair, but remember - it is called "the messy bun" and the key is not to over think.

I find my messy buns can sometimes look flat and have no volume, especially with my shorter layered hair.

Here is the link to my video, I show a way to getting great volume in a messy bun. 

This is how I wear my messy buns most days.

For this style you’ll need two hair elastics, spin pins or bobby pins.

If you’ve read my other post or watched other videos, you’ll know I LOVE spin pins!

They glide smoothly in and out of my hair, without snagging or tangling, two pins will hold in the style all day.

If you don’t have spin pins you can definitely use bobby pins.

One of the best tips I have for messy buns is when stretching out the hair, stretch out the sides (left and right) as well as top and bottom.   

Sometimes you will need to stretch a lot and other days just a little, the messy bun is always different.
