Messy bun – the updo even I can manage

By Aisling | December 16 2009 | 15 Comments


Coming as good news to those of us whom the super groomed look doesn’t come naturally – the disheveled updo is hot to trot this Christmas.

Easy as anything to do – just pile your hair up into a bun and clip it in place with lots of kirby grips. Pull out pieces of hair to soften the look and spray liberally with hairspray.

A very sexy look that’s very easy to do. We likey! What do you think?

    Always have kirbys in the bag on a night out for when I get too hot from dancing and throw the hair up somehow :D

    Ah I love this type of do but my hair is too heavy and always falls down :( I’m tempted to cut it just so I can do this.

    Girls I’d love to do my hair like this but I can never manage it
    Do you tie it up in a band first and then pin or do you twist it into a bun and just use grips ???

  • Orlando says:

    Pandora – I just feck it up there and use pins, I find if I tie it 1st that it tends to fall down more…I do have curly hair though which hides a multitude and rocks this look something fab!

  • Pandora says:

    Thanks Orlando. My hairs straight as a poker and not very versatile.
    Will defo give this a go tonight at home ! I so love that look.

  • Ais says:

    I could never get this style to stay up with just the brown ‘bobby pins’/slides but I started using those mini spider/jaw clips and seriously, theyre a godsend for anyone with alotta heavy hair doesnt budge!

  • BBG says:

    This doesn’t work from freshly washed hair. Not for me at least. Not unless you do something with it first, like put on hair spray and then get on to the grips. Otherwise the grips just fall out from my squeaky clean, straight hair…

  • AshC19 says:

    God I wish I could do this…

  • sevda says:

    I agree BBG freshly washed hair doesn’t work so well. This is normally jy hair after a night out, now its vang on trend.

  • Lilly says:

    What are spider/jaw clips? Do they work? I have Loads of long heavy hair and would not have a hope of doing this.

  • HotCrossedBunnie says:

    i loooooove this style :)
    it actully works best for me when my hair is wet, i have extreemly long hair, and somedays, a ponytail just wont cut it.
