3 Easy Buns for Long and Thick Hair

The following three ways of doing a messy bun are for those situations when you’re running late but still want to create something interesting with your hair. If you do everything right, these messy hairstyles will keep looking beautiful all day long. So, let’s have a look.

  • The first and the most important recommendation is to make a messy bun for second-day hair when your hair is not very clean already and not too dirty yet.Put your hair together in a high ponytail. Use an elastic to secure it. When pulling your hair through the elastic, leave some pieces out. Wrap the elastic again around the whole bun. Pull the bun in every direction to make sure it is secured well. You’ll get a big, messy bun. Take a hairspray and smooth down baby hairs near the forehead.
  • Create a very high ponytail. Use the fingers to smooth everything out. It gives a better texture and better effect for a messy look. Secure your hair with an elastic, leaving a tiny loop on the last time around. Pack the ends you’ve left back in the ponytail to make a bun. Secure with bobby pins.
  • And the last but not the least is a half top knot, which is also a variation of a bun for the women, who have very long and thick hair. To get lots of volume, curl your hair in advance. The curls shouldn’t be perfect. Use either a 1 ½ inch or 1 ¼ inch curling iron. Gather a top layer just above the ears and pull it back into a high ponytail. You can take as much or as little hair as you want, depending on which look you prefer more. Pull it up and create a bun. Make sure you don’t pull it too tight. Leave volume in the front. Secure it with an elastic or bobby pins (what’s better for you). Let it look effortless and messy. Tease hair a little bit. Secure with a hairspray, so the curls will stay all day long.

All of these hairstyles perfectly match any outfit and makeup. And you can wear them to a gym as well as a romantic dinner.
