Happy Friday Stylerellas!
So, my new favorite trend, well I don’t know if it’s really even a “trend” anymore but I love the “messy bun”. I feel like even though you put zero effort into it (well let’s be honest, it’s a lot of work to get the perfect messy bun) it still makes you look classy and chic somehow. Here’s how I make sure my messy bun has all the assets it needs to be envied!
- Well since I already have wavy hair normally I will lube up my long tresses after the shower with “BedHead Small Talk”. I always sleep with my hair wet anyway because 85% of the time I can wake up with the most stunning beach wave (oogle away, I hear your jealousy from here).
- When you wake up in the morning (for me when that 15% kicks in & the front of my Cat Walked mane looks like I stuck my finger in an outlet) I put a little water into it to make sure it’s not frizzy. No one, ever, likes frizz! This is not 1985; please don’t ever walk out into public looking like a Troll doll. I then add a teeny bit of Redken 07 Mousse to the ends and any part that may look slight Troll-ish! Sometimes you may need to even take a blow dryer to it to get a little more poof, not FRIZZ, poof! Then I spray it with my favorite hairspray Fructis Style Anti-Humidity (aka ANTI FRIZZ duh!) Flexible Control!
- Once your hair is at the perfect poof consistency, flip your head over and pull it to the top- as high as it will go bitches! Flip back up & smooth out hair at your scalp with a brush. Take your pony, preferably one that will not ruin your hair, wrap your poofed hair half way through the pony 3 times (like you’re going to do a lazy loop bun). Spray any parts sticking our looking like a chia pet with hair spray and tuck any straight pieces into the pony to make them look more curled. With this technique, I have been able to work all day, work out MID DAY & then run at night with the same messy bun all day. Definitely a hair-do “yes” for me.
