I'm going to be taking you through a series of videos that include hair care tips, style and product knowledge, and how to use certain hair equipment. Hi. On this video, I'm going to be showing you how to do a messy bun.

I've started from a ponytail, and what I'm going to do is I'm just going to hairspray. Just use a flexible hairspray. Just hairspray the ponytail until it gets quite a sort of hard texture to it.

The trick with this is not to be too precise. The more you don't think about it, the easier it is. Don't, kind of, go too crazy with your thinking with this.

We'll start with this top section. Just kind of pull it around and kind of section the top. That's about the size that I think you should need, especially if your hair is this sort of length.

What I'm going to do is I'm going to fold the hair back on itself, so it is almost creating that bun shape. If your hand is there, if your finger is there, you can move this without upsetting what you've got. So, keeping your finger holding the hair in place, I'm just going to use a grip.

Just pop that straight in. I'm just going to put another one in underneath it and cross it over, just to make sure it doesn't move anywhere. (?) your first section.

So, what you do now, because obviously you're going to be doing it on yourself, is you've just kind of got to see in the mirror what kind of shape you've got. If you need to check that you haven't got any kind of bits missing or you haven't put any bits up, then I suggest you use a mirror, just to look at the back of your hair. Now, I've done the same sort of thing to the side, but, you can see that section of hair is out, but we'll deal with that in a moment.

Same principle. Now, you can see already, loose sections are kind of being left out. So, now you've got this little bit of hair that I've left here.

Now this will be just kind of neatening up what you've got. If you want to make it a bit more of a bun, use these fine pins, just to kind of take the gaps out. Again, the trick is don't think about it.

I'm going to leave a few random sections out, just to make it extra messy. If your hair is really long, you can always tuck it back on itself and just spike those bits out. You can get this absolutely huge if you want to.

Now, all these kind of random bits left out, you can kind of use to your advantage. I'm going to just pull a little bit out. And that is how you create a messy bun.
