I just got back from a weekend in Connecticut and I’ve officially kicked fall into high gear with my knit sweaters and wrap scarves. One of my favorite fall hairstyles is a big messy bun because it’s relatively effortless to create a perfect simple updo. This is a go-to hairstyle for me for second or third day hair and it’s so cute. I also like to use this hairstyle when I’m on second or third day hair and my dry shampoo isn’t really cutting it anymore–it’s really fast to do!
I started by adding some Toni & Guy Sophia Webster 3D Volumizer Spray to my hair to build it up some volume and body to my hair. I love the smell of this stuff and how it multiplies my hair!
Next, I curled by hair via my 70s waves method to get more body and curl.
Gather your hair into a high ponytail with the hair ties and pull a donut bun onto your ponytail. I actually ended up removing the donut because my bun was comically large since I have really long and thick hair.
Take individual pieces of hair and wrap them around the donut bun or the base of your ponytail and pin in place. Continue adding bobby pins until all pieces of hair are wrapped up into the perfect messy bun!
And that’s it! The key to this look is embracing the messy and undone pieces to make it look like you just threw your hair up and went about your day. What are your go-to hairstyles that you swear by?
