Perfect Messy Bun Hairstyles for Long Hair

Loop through bun:

Create some volume in your hair using a brush. Now flip your hair upside-down and gather it in your hands into a ponytail. Now, depending on your hair length loop the hair but do not fully pull it through. Now you can adjust the bun by giving it volume and widening it.

Pastel blue braid and low bun:

Combine a messy loop bun with a halo plait and you’ve got an entirely new style. Add a unique hair color. Perfect messy bun hairstyles for long hair.

Fishtail braided bun:

Add quick curls to your hair. This particular bun is done by doing a fishtail braid to the side. Use a hair tie to keep the braid put. Begin teasing the braid by pulling on it lightly to make it loose and wide. Twist it into a bun. Use bobby pins to maintain it in place and voila!

Twist and roll:

If you are in a rush and want the messy bun look, scrape your hair up into a ponytail using your fingers. Use the hair in the ponytail to twist tightly and wrap it around the hair tie. Grip in place or secure with another hair tie or add a hair accessory. If you hair is on the shorter side or layered, some parts of it might fall out of the twists in the bun, but this adds to the messy style.

Flower power

It’s one of the funkier buns out there. Simply start with a ponytail. In the center of the ponytail, fan out your hair in all directions in a circle spreading outwards from the center. Loop these pieces of hair back over themselves (over and outwards) and clip underneath. The desired effect is like an open flower –the hair tie is the center of the flower and the hair is the petals going outwards.

Girly braid and bun:

French plait your hair from the nape of your neck to the crown. Pull the end of the braid and the hair that was left out into an imperfect bun to show off your handy work.

Braided chignon updo:

For this style, wrap the length of your hair over the hairband worn over the perimeter of your hand. You’ll need plenty of bobby pins to hold everything in place. But its easy to hide them with a braid.

Low bun with a twist:

Add some modernity to your low bun by simply including twisted pieces of hair on either sides of your head or keep it messy with a few loose wavy locks. Perfect messy bun hairstyles for long hair.

Easy, but effective!
