messy bun buffet.


so i've received a ton of requests last year and even this year to do a messy bun tutorial on this here blog - and i'm more than willing to, but every time i've sat down to try to do it, i don't find that my bun tutorial as very original at all. i feel like my bun technique is a conglomeration of some messy bun tutorial favorites of mine. 

so this weekend if you got the extra time to play with your hair, grab a couple rubber bands (the kinds that don't pop easily - especially if you have thick hair like me), a cheap comb, dry shampoo or hairspray and you should be all set!

one of the easiest looks to master! i've never tried it with the volume powder like Keiko used, but it still worked when i used lots of hairspray.

found this tutorial super easy and rocked it out a lot last year for those of you that have hung out around here for awhile. i used this video in this look and a lot of my summer hairstyles last year.

this last one is my most recent discovery of messy buns (along with my recent discovery of dry shampoo - oh my goodness, why have i waited this long?!). i used this tutorial for yesterday's look HERE.

so there you have it - a buffet of messy bun tutorials.
and like i said, one day i'll sit down and doing my own vlog if you really wanna hear my voice.
maybe it'll be an excuse to use my British accent. 

much love.
{happy friday, friend.}
