How to Do a Messy Bun Even if Your Hair Is Short and Thin?

Start with Clean Hair: Wash and dry your hair before styling to ensure a fresh base.

Add Texture: Use a texturizing spray or dry shampoo to add grip and volume to your hair.

Gather Your Hair: Gather your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head. For shorter hair, you may need to tilt your head forward to gather all the hair.

Twist and Wrap: Twist your ponytail and wrap it around the base to create a bun. Use bobby pins to secure the bun in place.

Loosen the Bun: Gently pull on the edges of the bun to loosen it and create a messy, undone look.

Secure and Adjust: Use more bobby pins as needed to secure any loose pieces and adjust the bun to your liking.

Finish with Hairspray: Spritz your bun with hairspray to set the style and add hold.
