Messy Bun for Shoulder Length Hair

Messy Bun Tutorial for Shoulder Length Hair, Chic Messy Bun, Messy Bun for Short Hair

I recently posted a tutorial for a messy bun that is meant for longer hair but can be adapted for shorter hair. Within the video, I included written instructions for how to modify it for those with shorter hair styles. Sometimes seeing it written isn't quite as simple as seeing it being done, so today I'm showing you how I do the shorter-haired version.

This video is how I do my messy bun when it's anywhere from just below chin-length to just below my shoulders. Once it's long enough, I add back in the double bun featured in the other tutorial.


Basic Steps:
  1. Pull hair up into low, small bun
  2. Tug loose ends up and around ponytail holder, making the bun bigger and adding fun, messy spikes
  3. Twist & tuck shorter pieces that fall out of bun into hair tie
  4. Pull & tug crown to add volume
Is that a quick and easy messy bun or what? This is typically how I wear my hair to work during the week (because it's so fast and I get ready at the gym) and for a low-key style on the weekends. In fact, my hair is almost always up in one of these funky buns.

Style tip: This updo works best for me if my hair has some curl/wave/kink to it. Try curling your hair with this heat-free curling method or sleep in a French braid the night before—it makes a big difference and when you pull and tug to add volume, having either face-framing soft curls or waves really takes this style up a notch (as seen from a distance here—see the face-framing curls?)!
