Questions for Clarisse: Messy Bun Tutorial

Question from Trexplex: For a “messy bun” that hairdo looks so great! How do you do it?

Thank you for prompting my first hair tutorial! I call this the messy bun, because it is loose and casual, as opposed to a tight and smooth ballerina bun. Here I’m showing you how to do it high on the head, but you can try it low at the base of the neck, or to the side if you’d like!

What you’ll need: A small hair tie and a few bobby pins (and a doll hair brush)


First brush hair out smoothly. No need to spritz with water, as a few fly-aways are ok!

Brush hair up into a high loose pony

Next, twist the hair, allowing it to spiral around the pony

Secure the end with a bobby pin (that little dot at the base of the bun) Hair4

Place other bobby pins around base of the bun as needed, to keep it close to the head

Messy bun!
