The Braided Messy Bun


Hi ladies!! Hannah here sharing my favorite everyday hairstyle! This is one of my favorites because it is so cute and ridiculously easy to do. I typically wash my hair every 3 days so this hairstyle works great with slightly dirtier hair. All you need is:

  • Hairbrush
  • 1-inch curling iron
  • Bobby pins
  • Pony-tail holder
  • Hairspray


  1. Start by brushing through hair. This was my third day hair so it already had a little wave to it.
  2. Curl sections of hair with a 1inch curling iron. Doesn’t have to be perfect, key to this style in quick and easy! (if you already have curly hair you can skip this step!)
  3. Break the curls up and add some hair spray. I teased the top of my hair for some added volume!
  4. Begin to braid the side where your part is and secure it with a ponytail. Once your braid is complete, pull strands of the braid to mess it up.
  5. Pin the braid to the back of your head and secure with bobby pins.
  6. Pull hair to the opposite side of you head and twist it.
  7. Turn the twist into a knot.
  8. Pull the end of the knot and secure with bobby pins.
  9. Pin all sides of the bun to secure it. I used about 6-7 bobby pins for this but you can use however many you want!
  10. Pull bits and pieces out to make Nikah it a little messy and voilà!
