Summer is on it’s way, and showing off your new loose beach curls and luminous long locks is going to be really tempting. On those excruciatingly hot and sticky 90 degree weather days, when your hair is frizzing from the humidity, why not try a flirty and chic messy bun? The boho messy bun is great for a few reasons. Firstly, it keeps you cool from the hot summer temperatures, while looking glamorous at the same time. Secondly, there are so many different styles, such as the top-knot, the side bun, and a funky bun, so you have the option to dress it up or down. Thirdly, the messy bun is a hairdo that never goes out of style. It’s a timeless classic. Lastly, you can see it worn by some of your favorite celebrities such as: Julianne Hough, Rihanna, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Hudgens, and Kim Kardashian. The easiest way to achieve the effortless messy bun is to follow these steps:

1) Start combing your hair up as if you’re making a ponytail. Gather your hair and tie it.

2) Divide the hair from the ponytail into 4 separate sections and wrap each of the sections around the base at one time (this wrapping part has a little flexibility because you can decide if you want to make it a loose topknot or a tight topknot). After you have wrapped the sections, place bobby pins discreetly around each section to secure your topknot.

3) After you have secured each section, you can choose to make the topknot messier by pulling out small bits of your hair out of the bun for a more natural look.

4) Lastly, spritz some hairspray to put a finishing hold on your messy bun look.
