I would rather have a messy bun than having my hair pulled back in a ponytail. Sometimes you want to half-ass things without looking like that is all you’re doing, right? 🙂
This first one is my fav. She has done this messy bun video at least 4 times, slower each time, and I still have no idea how she got her hair to go that way. Who has the time to practice in front of a mirror when I’m too busy watching TikTok videos on how to do my hair?

How To Do A Messy Bun With Short Hair
I might cut my hair again one day. And, I’d be pissed I clicked all the way to this page and none of these bun options worked for me just cause my hair was a little shorter than “medium length”. Gotta make everyone happy.

Messy Bun for Long or Thin Hair
Another one that looks easy, until you hair gets so tangled, you have to chop it all off and move back up to the Short Hair Messy Bun video. Ok, probably not that bad. I do love these videos. I’m sure after a good marathon of motivation, hyperfocus, and a few hours in the bathroom, I’m going to be a pro!

Easiest Messy Bun
I actually feel like I could do this one right out of the gate! I love that she admits to not washing her hair in over a week, and she’s been working out. I got my hair dyed a month ago, my hairdresser straightened afterwards of course, and said it should last a week looking all awesome and straight. I’m like seriously, I like to try to work out pretty much every day! But here we go this bun is better when your hair is gross!

Failproof Messy Bun!
This video is pretty much like the first bun, except she does two flips. Have you ever seen those videos where they tell you something works a certain way, but it was really just click bait, because it won’t actually work? I’m starting to think these buns might be similar based on the comment on this video. “I’ve watched this 67 times and I still can’t do it.” Please comment below if you’ve gotten this one to work. I need to know if I should keep trying. Who am I kidding, I haven’t started trying. I need to know if I should walk to the bathroom and start trying.

1 Minute Messy Bun
1 minute sounds promising, but she does mention a bobby pin, which kinda turned me off. I tried twice to do this in my seat while I’m curating these videos. I need to work on getting the hair actually on the top of my head, I feel like they are skipping that part. How to smooth out all the hairs so they sit nicely at the top of your head and don’t turn into a bun at the back of your head. My arms got tired.

But Does It Work For Medium Hair
I really thought I was going to get this one. I feel like I’ve complained a little too much with these videos, so I’m not going to complain any more. I’m just gonna say you need to two elastics for this one. I will have to try again later.
@juliarosemondbeauty##duet with @maceylarose so cute but does it work for medium length hair? ##hairtutorialsvideo ##messybun ##messybuntutorial ##hairtransformation♬ Dissolve – Absofacto
I hope you enjoyed these messy bun videos. I hopefully will try and perfect at least two of them. Maybe I can come back and post some pictures when I have some more motivation. I’m just letting my legs rest today, so I didn’t do any workout yet and once I sit, my brain never wants to get up again, and if I’m up, my brain never wants to sit.
