The Half Up Messy Bun by Perky Pony!

Well, I’ve done it.  I have finally perfected the messy bun.  And, what’s even better, I made it a half up, half down messy bun.  Honestly, I can’t believe it took me this long to do, but I know I’m not alone when I say I’ve always been jealous of those girls that look like they just threw on an oversized sweater and put their hair up in a bun and still look like a million bucks!  I just figured they were born with flawless skin, and hair that looked good no matter what they do.  I’ve smartened up since then and learned that there is an art to every awesome look.  So here is the  recipe to a messy half up bun that you really can do in 2 seconds and throw on that oversized sweater and finally have everyone wondering how you can look so perfect in so little time! 

Half Up Messy Bun - Perky Pony

It Doesn’t Get Much Easier Than This!

1) Pull your hair half back with a hair elastic, but do not pull hair all the way through. 

2) Grab the middle section of your small ponytail bun and pull up towards the crown of your head and secure with a bobby pin.

3) Then take the sides that are already drooping down and pull them down and towards the center. 

4) Pull until both sides meet in the middle and secure with bobby pins.

If you want your bun to look a little messier, just start pull out strands of hair and ruffle the bun a little.  Now it’s your turn to grab your coffee and run out the door with your effortless good looks.
