  • Messy Ballerina Bun

One of my go-to hairstyles, when I am in a hurry is the messy ballerina bun. For starters, I put my hair in a very high ponytail and make sure that is secure. After that step, I then wrap the ponytail around the center to form the perfect ballerina bun. Finally, I pull tiny pieces of the secured bun out to create a messy look.

  • High-Volume Pony

The high-volume ponytail is the perfect hairstyle for any hair type. I have fragile hair, and even I can make it work. For starters, section your hair, pulling the top half up in a clip. After this step, I then tease the bottom part of my hair and secure it with an elastic band. Then, I repeat this step once more for the top half. Finally, I grab both ponytails and bring them together as one. Tease it up a little and you have the perfect high-volume look.

  • Top Knot

Another one of my personal favorites is the top knot half up, half down style. For starters, I section my hair and tease the bottom half of my head. Then I grab the top half and start teasing away. After I get the volume that I am looking for, I make a ponytail with that section of the hair. Finally, I wrap the hair around to form a messy top knot bun. You can be creative with this hairstyle. Feel free to add an additional bun as well for an edgy look.

  • Side Braid

The side braid can be either super fast or challenging depending on your skill level. For this blog post, I am going to just create a simple, single side braid. Start by pulling your hair to either side that you prefer. Once you have it all together on side, then start braiding away. Finally, once you have ran out of hair to include in the braid tie it off with an elastic band.

  • Twist It Back

Messy hair is in style right now, so for this hairstyle don’t feel like you need to apply heat first. For starters, grab two sections of hair that frames your face. Then just twist the strands of hair with your fingers as you pull them back. Finally, secure the pieces in the middle of your head with a bobby pin or fun barrette.
