Low Messy Side Bun

Ever look at your hair before a date and think humph? Rally and create a soft updo in three easy steps. This romantic side bun is the stuff of dreams—effortless, pretty, and unique.


Start this dreamy style by pulling your hair into a low side ponytail. After you secure your hair with an elastic, pull out the pieces of hair around your face for a softer effect. Ball your hair around the base of your ponytail and secure the bun with another elastic. Next shape the bun and pin as needed.
