Putting Long Hair Into A Messy Bun

Usually, I do not wear my hair up, but someone asked if I could style my hair this way. Thus, I decided to put my hair in a messy bun. This is not a hair styling tutorial per se, but more of a hair styling thought post. Perhaps it will give you inspiration on trying new updos. The reason I never really tried updos was that I always felt like these had to look formal or precise, but messy buns are quite popular. As my hair gets longer, I also find I am more apt to put it up when cleaning so it does not drag the floor when I bend over to sweep.

This is how my messy bun turned out.

To create this bun style I simply put my hair in a pony tail, and then I twisted it around on top of my head. I used a tiny bit of Yves Rocher traditional tiare oil to help smooth down my hair. I remembered that this coconut tiare infused oil is easier to use on hair than unrefined coconut oil, the latter which has to be heated because it can often solidify. However, I have played with the idea of perhaps making my own gardenia infused coconut oil one of these days, but there is really no need to do that since Yves Rocher makes a great product for us to purchase online.

This messy bun style is fun to try for people who just want to throw their hair up.

So here is a speed motion video illustrating how I put my hair in a messy bun for anyone who is thinking about trying updos for the first time in years.

    I love that your hair is so long! I have always wanted to have really long hair, but mine won’t keep growing, past a certain point. When my daughter was little, I almost always wore my hair in a bun, for ease of movement. Consequently, when she drew pictures of me, the bun was the most prominent feature.

      I was cutting quite a few inches off my hair every few months, but around December I decided I want to see how long it can grow. I did trim off a couple of inches in June, and I might again soon, but I am curious to see if my hair will grow longer. People have been commenting my hair seems to be growing really fast this summer. I might try more buns in the future, but I do want to make these a bit more refined next time. I was just trying a new style a friend requested.
