Fun Messy Bun

I've always loved the look of a messy bun, but I could never get it right. It was either too tight or it would flop. My hair is super slippy and loves to go flat.

This post was a spur of the moment decision.... Photos were taken after church on Sunday. We'd already eaten lunch, and we're about to kick our feet up and watch some football. 😊 

So my messy bun is about 4-5 hours old... taken with my phone by hubby. 😍  So you know there was some goofyness involved, not a lot of fancy going on. I didn't even edit these photos, not too bad iPhone7.

The fact that it's pretty much still in tack is awesome! It has flattened some, but for the most part, it's pretty good.

I mentioned in my last post about my Bangs!, that I follow a beauty blogger named Kate from The Small Things Blog. She has a TON of video tutorials on all kinds of hairdos.

Anyway, I forgot all about her tutorial on the 'perfect' messy bun.

In order for the bun to be messy you've got to start with messy hair. She has tips on teasing and texturizing your hair.

Messy Bun - keeping it loose

Then you need to gather all your hair up loosely with your fingers open, then fold over your hair into a bun, then put the elastic on. It takes some practice.

There is a bit more to it, like stretching it and pinning a few places, but I think I finally have it down!

You gotta check out her post. Her video is short but thorough.

Oh! I just have to give a shout out. My sweet daughter just began a new adventure... she opened an Etsy Shop! She may only have a few things in there now, but her creative juices are brewing! I can't wait to see what's next!
