Hair Tutorial: The Undone Bun

Hey lil darlins:) So the hairstyle that I get the most requests for out of them all (probably because its always how I have my hair*wink*) is my undone bun! Now there are two different ways I do this, but this version is easier to photograph and to explain, so I thought I'd share it first! What do you think?
The thing I love best about this style is of course the ease and simplicity, but also the way it can be so casual with the messy approach, but if you don't tug out your flyaways it can really be quite polished and fancy! I think it would work great for curly hair as well because it would be even more forgiving, and it would work for medium to medium-short length hair as-well! Lets get to it shall we?
Supplies needed:
- hairtie
- bobby pins
- hairspray
Step #1: Weather or not you have day old hair we wanna spray a bit of hairspray through your locks to give your hair lots of good grip and texture. Then pull all your hair straight upwards, and use this time to tug out a few of your fly-aways (optional:)) Pull a hairtie over the hand grasping all your hair and....
Step #2:  ...stop! once you get your fits through the hairtie (stilkl holding all the hair) twist the hairtie and create a funny samurai topknot high on your head! holding your topknot with one hand tud your hair out a bit in all directions to give volume. Twist the remaining hair and begin to wind around the topknot!
Step #3: coming from the back to the front, so as to make sure the ends get back around. Secure your new bun in several places with your pins, and spritze with some hairspray! Congrats girly, you're done!
I've done this style so many times I can do it with my eyes closed, but it really has only ever taken me about a minute to achieve! Its my go-to topknot bun, and I hope you will love it as much as I do!

I hope you give it a try and then come back and tell me how it went. I'm always looking for feedback on my tutorials, so as to make them as clear and helpful as possible, so feel free!
xo, Emmy

  13. Wow, love this. I must say, I discovered your blog yesterday and already am using several things from it :) This is really cute and useful, especially since i've been struggling with making my crappy hair into a nice looseish messy bun, and always something wasn't working. This time it all fell perfectly into place, so thank's for that great tutorial!
