The messy bun is so very easy. By putting the hair into a half pony tail again and then wrapping the pony tail in a second bobble but leaving it half pulled through and doing that twice you create two very untidy loops. Pull and pin into place with grips and try not to make it too neat. Little ends sticking out, strange twists and uneven loops is the required result!!! The perfectionist in me hates leaving it messy, but I do think it looks very cool!
The next style is best done on very damp hair to keep flyaway hairs to a minimum. Separate a square of hair above the ear. Split into two pieces and twist them clockwise whilst passing them over each other anti clockwise. This method helps keep the twists tight. Continue twisting until the braid reaches right across to the back of the opposite ear. Secure with 2 clips crossing over. Repeat on the other side. Make sure that the hair is smoothed nicely before clipping braid into place. Hair grips can be used underneath the twists across the top of the head to prevent them slipping down the back of the head.
