Summer is here and that means hot weather, outdoor parties, and time in the pool. If you want a an easy updo to keep your hair off your neck and keep it up out of the water while you cool off in the pool, the messy bun is the perfect go to look.
This style works best with wavy hair so go natural if you have the goods, if not get out that curling iron and add some quick body. Next you are going to want to amp up that texture, Unite Expanda Dust is the perfect product to do this. It is a powder that you sprinkle in at your roots and it will give you amazing volume and texture. You want to dust this at the back of your hair around the spot where you want your bun to sit. Then lightly shake it around your hair with your hands. Once this powder is distributed and working you want to gently tease the back of you hair just at the roots to get a good base for the style.
Now that your hair is prepped and ready to go, pull it back into a loose ponytail with your hands in the spot you want your bun and hold with one hand. With the other hand fold the length of your hair up into a messy ball and then hold with a clear elastic. Stretch this out and pull to loosen a bit. Then get those bobby pins out and twist the loose ends and pin them up into the bun and add some pins to secure whole style. If there are any loose strands in the front you can just twist those back and pin into the style.
Once you have your bun secured you can pull at the top to give the style a little height then finish off with a veil of hairspray. Unite’s Go365 hairspray is perfect for this as you can adjust the level of hold to your liking by turning the nozzle. Pick between strong, medium, or light hold, spray your style and off to the party you go!
