Messy Bun Video

I've had a few requests for a messy bun tutorial.....Here is my version of a messy bun:

There are dozens of ways to do a messy bun- the trick is finding which way works for your hair type. This way happens to work the best on mine, and my daughter's hair. I have tried several different variations over the years, but have finally settled on this...for now, anyway! It stands up to a long day on the playground or soccer field- which is HUGE when your daughter plays as hard as mine. She hates bobby pins and clippies, so this worls great for us. In the video, you'll notice I use blue elastics so you can see them easier. Normally I like to use elastics that match her hair better. Good luck, and let me know if you have any questions!

That is SOOOO much easier than the way I attempted it! It looks like it will hold better too.. if it lasts for Hailey...
Now why did I cut my hair? I could have cone that one on myself!

Thanks for sharing - my daughter has fine hair and I have never been able to get the buns to stay in. I really liked the video - it made it super easy to follow. (video is great for novice hair moms like myself :)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! I have tried a different messy bun several times and it just didn't turn out right! Today I did it your way, and Yahoo!! It wasn't perfect by any means, but it was pretty cute!!! YIPEE!!

I linked in from someone else's blog- hope you don't mind me posting.

I am completely and totally hair impaired! I have tried and tried and tried to do that hairdo with my daughters and always failed.

Now I know the secret- LOTS MORE ELASTICS! Thanks for the tutorial. I'll probably have to watch it a few times before I 'get' it.
