Meghan Markle Messy-Bun

Hey everyone!

So, today’s look is inspired by the gorgeous Meghan Markle. She can  sport a lot of hairstyles, but one that I really love is her simple messy bun.

Difficulty level: easy

Time needed: 5-10 minutes

Items needed: 6 bobby-pins, 1 hairband, 1 comb

1.)Part your hair down the middle. Then, using the comb, brush back the hair at the crown of your head.

2.)Still using the comb, tease the hair at the crown of your head. You tease the hair by running the comb through it with downward motions (never up.) This will slightly tangle the hair at the roots, giving it volume. Secure with 3 bobby-pins.

3.)Gather the rest of your hair into a low pony-tail.

4.)Twist the pony-tail to the right, while coiling it to the left, forming a bun. Once you have coiled all of your hair, secure with a hairband.

5.)Gently tug at the bun to make it looks fuller and messier. Use bobby-pins to keep it in place as needed.

6.)Pull down hair by the front of the middle part to frame the face.

And that’s it! Super easy, yet really chic. It’s really perfect for every season.

Mermaid Braid (Bonus Post!)

Hey hey hey everybody! Today, I have this super beautiful hairstyle—modeled by my super beautiful sister!—that is super easy, and great for the Spring/Summer themes!

Items needed: 3 elastics, hairbrush, hairspray, and bobby pins—if desired
Time: 10-15 minutes

Alrighty! Let’s get to it!

1. To start, make sure that the hair is brushed, and if frizzy, I would recommend hairspraying it first.

2. To begin the mermaid braid, take a section of hair from the front, and bring to the back of the head. Then, begin a simple three-strand braid. Your hair should look something like this:
Step one

3. Now, pancake the braid, then secure with an elastic.

4. Now pic up a section of hair on the left side of the head..

5. Then, begin to fishtail-braid the left section of hair. Pancake the braid, then secure with an elastic.

6.  Repeat steps 4-5 on right side. Your hair should now look something like this:

 

 

{Make sure that you leave behind a bit of hair with the three-stranded braid!}

7. Now, gather all the hair together and braid it into a plait (using the fishtail braids for your left and right sections, and the three-stranded braid/leftover hair for the middle)—while you are braiding, make sure you pull out the other elastics (if desired), that way you don’t see them in the final look. (;

8. Hairspray—if desired. Also, if there are any spots that seem to be needing some pinning, bobby pin to your desire!

And that’s all there is to it! I hope y’all enjoyed this gorgeous hairstyle!
