So, do you want to know about different styles of messy buns? Here’s a guide for you. 

Best Messy Bun Hairstyle For Short. Medium And Long Hair 

From Victoria Beckham to Blake Lively, many celebs have flaunted the messy bun hairstyle off late. However, this hairstyle is not just about trends, as it has inherent vintage charm.

Do you want some cool ideas to make messy buns? I have curated some cool ideas for you.

1. The Classic Messy Bun Hairstyle

You must have seen many celebs flaunting this hairstyle. Julianne Moore and Blake Lively are the most famous to wear this hairstyle.

You need to pull all your hair up to the crown and secure the strands into a ponytail. Then, just twist and fold the ponytail to create the shape of a bun. Secure the bun with scrunchies or elastic bands.

Do you want to further stylize your messy bun? Add beaded or pearl-studded pins for some extra glam. 

2. Low Messy Bun Hairstyle 

If you want to give your face a slimmer appearance, you can try this low messy bun hairstyle. It is also one of the simplest hairstyles for you to try. 

The low messy bun hairstyle suits all hair lengths. So, it does not matter whether you have short, medium, or long hair.

You just need to collect all your hair strands and tie them into a bun near the nape. Don’t forget to pull out a few strands of hair from the bun to add a touch of playfulness to your appearance.

3. Messy Bun For Curly Hair

Messy buns look the best on curly hair. Are you inspired by the messy bun look of Pamela Anderson? This hairstyle is easy to nail, and thanks to the natural volumes of your curls, your hair will have a voluminous look.

You will need to make a ponytail near your crown to make this hairstyle. Now, pull the edges of the curls and secure them with bobby pins, or just give the ponytail the shape of a round bun with an elastic band or scrunchie. 

4. Braided Messy Low Bun 

Aha! This hairstyle looks like it is straight out of a scene of your favorite period drama or Taylor Swift’s cottagecore videos. Are you in for some Bridgerton vibe for this season?

To make this hairstyle, you need to neatly comb your hair and make a middle parting. You can also go for backcombing to have a slightly elevated look at the front.

Now, divide your hair into two halves and tie the lower of your hair into a low bun near your nape. 

Again, divide the upper half of your hair into two sections to make braids embracing two sides of your crown. You can also use a scarf or lace while making the braids for a vintage vibe.

When the braids are made, wrap the edges of the braids around the low bun you have made. You can use pearl beads, stones, and other adornments to spruce up this messy bun hairstyle. 

5. Wide Messy Bun 

If you have long hair, you can go for a wide messy bun style. To make the hairstyle more secure, you can use hairspray from the root to the tip of your hair strands. This hairstyle will need some effort on your part. However, once you have made the hairstyle, you will find the result worth your effort.

To make the wide messy bun, you need to do a middle parting in your hair. You don’t need to be very neat or specific about the parting, as you don’t want to take out the carefree charm of this hairstyle. 

Now, take two halves of your hair strands and make two pigtails or ponytails. Keep the ponytails or pigtails low. Now twist one ponytail and give it the shape of a bun. Now, wrap the other ponytail on the other for a fuller and wider appearance. 

Further, pull the buns gently so that they look fluffy, and you have a few tresses to caress your face at the front. 

6. Messy Bun With Curtain Bangs 

A messy bun with curtain bangs at the front is a contemporary hairstyle that epitomizes classy fashion. Here, you will need to tie the messy bun near your crown so that the cascading bangs at the front create a perfect visual balance. 

You can easily make this messy bun by tying your hair into a ponytail and then twisting it into the shape of a bun. Then, secure the bun with a scrunchie or bobby pins. 

This hairstyle perfectly suits a round or oval face shape. The high-low effect created by the messy bun near the crown and curtain bangs at the front will give your face an elongated appearance. 

You can further accessorize your bun with a chain made with dry flowers or a pearl strand to make a distinct style statement. 

7. Messy Bun For Short Hair 

Do you have short hair and are looking for a feminine hairstyle? Don’t worry, as you can make a beautiful messy with your short hair. And do you know it’s double the fun? 

If you have short hair with tresses of varying lengths, you can make double messy buns. By making messy buns, one on top of the other, you will be able to secure the hair strands properly. So, your hairstyle will have a decent structure without ruining the grace and movement.

Further, if you are wearing this hairstyle for a party or black-tie event, you can use a hairpin studded with pearls or stones for the much-needed glam quotient. 

Final Words 

Do you like the elegant style of Kate Middleton or the perky hairstyle of Mila Kunis? These two celebs with different styles of dressing up have flaunted messy bun hairstyles for many occasions.

Along with the ease of making this hairstyle, women also love it for the right balance of definition and movements in their hair.

Further, from your beautiful curls to straight hair, you have a messy bun style to ace your fashion game.
