How to Do the Perfect Messy Bun for Long Haired Lovelies 546 450 Number 4 High Performance Hair Care


Your luscious long locks can be both an eternal blessing and also a curse…especially if you’re having a lazy day.

Tangled tresses cause distresses!

And on days when you just can’t tame your mane, you might end up looking for the scissors and giving yourself a little snip!

But wait!

Before you do something you’ll regret, just remember that all that extra hair means you have more to play with. Think about all the fun you can have.

While updos sometimes get a bad rap because of the myriad of stages they seem to employ, there’s one winning style that never fails to deliver and doesn’t require a zillion steps either. Yes, we are talking about everyone’s favorite….

The Messy Bun! – 2 Options!

Messy buns are perfect for those days when you still want to achieve a “pulled together” look but you quite frankly don’t have time for faffing about.

While creating the messy bun can at first be a little bit challenging (after all, you want to look like you’ve not tried too hard…not like you’ve been dragged through a bush!) with a few tips and tricks you can nail this style in no time.

The Classic – Volume & Texture

We’re calling this one the classic. It’s a look that delivers on volume and texture. The best part about this style is that you really can roll out of bed, over to your mirror, throw your hair up and off you go!

Here’s what you’ll need:

How to get the look in 4 simple stages:

Step 1: Spritz the roots with N4’s Sugar Texturizing Spray then brush through hair to evenly distribute the product.

Step 2: Tie hair back in a low maintenance, messy ponytail.

Step 3: Loosely twist your ponytail into a bun shape.

Step 4: Secure your messy bun in place with a couple of strategic bobby pins and spray with Mighty Hair Spray.

The Wet One

We’ve named this version of the messy bun the wet one! It’s great for days spent in the sunshine, lazing around the pool, or at the beach. The biggest bonus of this style is that it works best when hair is wet so it’s ideal for vacations or just days when you’re rushing from the shower to the street with barely enough time to miss a beat!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • N4’s Super Comb Prep & Protect
  • Hair Tie
  • Bobby Pins

Achieve this look in just three simple stages:

Step 1: Wash your hair then spritz with N4’s Super Comp Prep & Protect which will help strengthen, shield and protect your hair from those UV rays.

Step 2: Make a bun by pulling hair back and securing with a hair tie at the nape of your neck.

Step 3: Time to “muss” things up a bit! Tease out a few strands to create a more disheveled look. And if you need to, secure with a couple of good ol’ bobby pins.

Voila. Messy hair. Do care.
