First things first, brush your hair thoroughly and untangle it completely. Then take two sections of hair one from either side and leave them aside. Grab the middle section of the hair and tie it into a low ponytail. Now split it above the hair tie, creating a gap in between and pull the rest of the ponytail inside out through the gap. This creates a twisted pattern. Now take the two front sections and gently twist them and braid them. Tuck these two sections into the gap created. The final step is to grab small sections of the hair, twist and tuck them around the hair tie until you are done doing it all. Gently pull out a hair to create the messy look.

To begin with, brush all your hair and make a high ponytail without combing too much. Now, separate the ponytail into sections and use hair spray to spray and set each section. Then, start backcombing each section to create a messy detail. You are now left with one simple step. Grab all the hair and twist it and tie it all with a hair tie. Gently loosen strands of hair and use bobby pins to secure them in place. This messy bun is perfect if you have short or medium hair.
Elegant multiple braided voluminous messy bun for long hair
This one is for long curly hair. If you do not have natural curls you can get them curled using various curlers. Once you are done with that part, make a side partition in the front part of your hair and keep that section aside. Grab little sections from the front and centre of your hair and braid them into the classic three stranded braids. Now take the middle back part of your hair and lift it a bit to create a little puff detail and secure it with bobby pins. Then spray your hair and secure it all with a big hair tie or doughnut. This helps in creating volume around the bun.
Take little sections from the ponytail and start pulling them over the doughnut once. Then, take the leftover hair and pin them randomly creating helical details. Use bobby pins to secure all the sections in place. Leave the curly ends as they are there to add some messy texture. Decorate it with flowers, pearls or stones!
Beautiful sectioned and twisted messy bun for medium and long hair
This messy bun is perfect for people with medium and long hair. It looks clean and messy both at the same time. To make this one, start off by combing your hair thoroughly and making a ponytail at the centre. Now, split the ponytail into sections and start spraying each section. Secure each section with hair ties at the end. Now gently pull out each section of the hair.
Once that is done, take each section and twist it a bit, roll it over the hair tie and secure it with bobby pins. Repeat the same with each and every section of hair. Take each left-over section, curl it inwards, secure with pins and you are done! For a messy finish, pull out the hair and you are good to slay this messy bun look.
All the above hairstyles are great options for weddings or any big occasions. You can, however, customise each of them according to your purpose and occasion. Try experimenting and you’ll find the ones that suit you the best. There’s nothing to lose because the messy bun never goes wrong.
