A Chic Messy Bun

First of all thank you so much Sonia for inviting me as your guest. I am truly honoured. I am sorry for being late but I wanted to do something interesting in this one. Didn’t want to do the usual product review, nail art or any post on skin care regime.So I came up with the idea of messy bun. I love doing messy bun because it looks stylish and hardly takes time. 

I wanted to post my picture with a messy bun but when I tried doing it I was not able to take a right pic of my hair from the back. Still as I was excited about the post I went ahead with it. I will try to be as simple as possible. So lets go ahead with it. Alright? 

Step 1 - To start with it I do my regular shampoo and conditioning routine and towel dry my hair. I generally avoid using any straightening hair gel but if it is once in a blue moon then I don’t mind and therefore I am mentioning it here. 

Step 2 -  Separate your fringes from rest of the hair. I think if you have fringes then messy look more amazing and probably this is the reason I so like them. 

Step 3 - Comb hair backwards and run your hands into the hair. 

Step 4 - Now the main trick is bending down so that all hair falls forward. The way boys in the school were asked to become a frog: D (if you remember but bend down your head and not the body: D)
Now collect all your hair and make a high pony tail. If you want a lower messy bun you can make a little low one. It is all up to you. 

Step 5 - Make the pony tail the way you do it regularly and use a elastic band to tie them up. Don’t make a tight pony tail and leave a little “poof”. This makes hair look more volumised and makes bun look messier. 

Step 6 - Stay in the bending position and fan out the hair in all direction so that it becomes a fountain.You have to hold the centre of the foundation and start rolling it down in a clockwise direction.Continue till you get a bun. 

Step 7 - Now use bob pins to secure the bun. 

Step 8 - To make it look messy run your finger through the hair so that it looks slightly loosened up from the elastic.
