Messy Bun

So, here's the next hairstyle post I promised one of my sisters. Again, all you people with normal length hair, this probably isn't going to work for you. It's for very long hair. :-)
This tutorial may be more confusing than the last one for which I apologize... but I'm doing my best! Okay, down to business. First you smooth your hair back into a pony-tail then start twisting as you would for just a normal 'cinnamon roll' bun.

Keep you left hand at the base of the 'pony-tail' and make your first wrap with your hair...thus. Now your fingers on your left hand should be sticking through the center of the bun.
Grab that leftover hair into those fingers and pull it through. (Gee...this is super hard to describe! Hopefully pictures help.)


You are going to have to adjust your bun so that it is centered on your head and pin it in place. Now, you can leave it like this (which is very cute...except my hair looks a little weird in this shot!:-) and put your favorite pretty hair clip in to make it fun. OR you can take it a step farther and turn it into a sort of messy bun.

All that leftover 'ponytail' hair is just perfect for making curls! Yay! LOL. So, you start curling little (and I mean little) sections of hair around your fingers and pinning them in place all over your existing bun. This takes time, patience and quite a few hair pins. :-) Don't worry if your curls aren't staying perfect or are 'puffing' up a little. That's okay. It'll look pretty when you're done. Well...hopefully.

And TA-DA!! Isn't it pretty?
AND! If you try it and it doesn't turn out well the first time don't give up. It takes a little practice. But it's worth it.
God Bless,
