Even though messy bun hairstyles look quick and often haphazard, there is skill and attention to detail needed for the look to come across in a pleasing manner. Often, the high bun is considered a better look for professional or classic situations and the low bun is thought of as a more casual look. Feathery tendrils can soften the face to give you an enticing look. Braided hair, such as French or Dutch, types blend well with either high or low the messy bun styles of today.

At a minimum, all you need to do is make a ponytail and fold it over. Let some strands hang loosely along the front and sides. While you can start simple, many of these looks take a little more effort to get right.
