The Messy Bun: 1. Gather your hair in a semi-loose ponytail in the place you would like the bun on your head. 2. With one hand gripping the base of the ponytail firmly, use the other hand to twist the ponytail until it starts to wrap around itself. 3. Continue to twist slightly as you wrap the ponytail into a bun. 4. Once wrapped completely, you can take a hair tie and wrap around the base of the bun making sure the tip of the ponytail is secure. You can also secure the bun with bobby pins.
