Back Section Braid.
Make a statement and break breaks a braid on the back section of your hair. This braid will start at the nape of the neck and work its way up to the crown.
Simply flip your hair, start your upside down braid, and form a messy bun on the top of your head. BOOM! Transformation complete.
Why only have one bun, why not 2?! Space Buns are cute, trendy, and fun to rock. They are also so easy to style.
Simply part your hair down the middle, tie each half of your hair into a pigtail using hair ties, and lastly loop those pigtails into messy buns that rests on top of your head. Let some strands loose in the front section of your hair for extra flare. This hairstyle also works great as a half updo.
Tip: Add flowers, glitter, or any other accessories to make it extra fun.
Get Creative With Hair Pins
We talked about some of our favorite hair accessories before, and we believe the right hair pin can make any style look glamorous. Create cute patterns with your hair pins to add some extra allure, we personally love the X shape. It’s so easy to do and looks dreamy.
Add Extra Volume
This style can be effortless and elegant. By adding some calculated volume to the front, back, and sides of your messy bun, it gives it a nice glam effect. This is the kind of hairstyle that when done right, you can wear to a wedding or any nice outing.
Simply style your hair into a loose ponytail by making sure you don’t pull back too tight, then twist it into a messy bun. After that, gently pull strands you want to puff up from your scalp to create some volume. Spray will be your best friend during this hairstyle. Practice makes perfect but you will eventually end up with a voluminous, beautiful tousled look.
Use A Scarf
A scarf on your topknot or messy hair bun can give it a cool, boho chic, unruly vibe. A total free spirited look. Play around with this style, it’s perfection for Spring/Summer and will definitely level up your hairstyle.
