High Messy Bun for Long, Curly Hair

August 03, 2022 ยท by Andrea Long

As a busy mom, I love a good hairstyle that will keep my long waves out of my face (and my kiddos' chubby fingers). I love this messy bun updo, because it's super quick, simple, and can work as a casual or dressy style. Today, I have it styled with my Dainty Jewell's sweatshirt, but I've curled the ends and done the same style for church and dressy clothes. 

Here's what you'll need:

A hair elastic

Bobby pins


Hand-held mirror (to see the back)

Headband (optional)
