Whether on the street, in editorial, or on the runway - buns are bigger and better than ever! In this tutorial, Sherri Jessee shows us how to make a big messy bun look sophisticated and polished. Follow her steps to get the perfect messy bun look... 

Before: hair has been curled on a 1 ¼” curling iron. 



1     Use your hands to sweep hair up to the crown of the head and secure into a high pony-tail. Allow front and back side pieces to drop out.


2     Create a “bungee” by putting 2 bobby pins on a small rubber band.


3     Swing pony-tail forward  and secure to the head with bungee.


4     Use several large bobby pins to pin a “bun pad” to the crown of the head. 


5     Grasp the edges of the pony-tail and swing over to cover the bun pad.


6     Use another bungee to secure the edges of the pony-tail. 


7     Drape the front side pieces around to the back. Pin to secure.



8    Spray with Pravana NEVO Super Shape Hair Spray for long lasting hold.
