We know how relived it feels when your hair is all tied up neatly, the nonchalant way, and you’re ready to take on the day without any strands coming in your way. Top knots are our go-to hairstyle because it keeps hair off our face and secures them tightly. However in reality, it doesn’t always look as elegant as they appear in our Instagram feeds.
In top knots hairdo, the hair is either pulled back very tightly which can give a greasy look or the knots look super which are incomparable to the lustrous knots we see on social media. In other words, we often times end up looking like Miss Trunchbull.
In order to achieve the mix of sultry and sophisticated bun hairdo, the messy bun tops the list without a question. The problem arises when we try to imitate the exact style we get inspired from our Insta feeds and get defeated in a matter of seconds because the messy bun ended up looking like you haven’t had a shower in days!

She first pulls up her hair in a high pony tail and pulls the elastic only half way through before twisting the band and flipping the her hair over her hand before securing the style. If you’re looking for a messier finish, you can pull out any sections at the front and ta-da, you’re all set!
You will definitely see yourself pressing the ‘watch again’ button a few times while trying to master the style in front of the mirror, but once you get hold of the technique , it will take you lesser time to get the perfect messy bun than tying a pony tail.
