Hi ladies! I’m happy to share with you the 1 minute bun tutorial with just a hair tie! I wear my hair in this messy bun maybe 4 times a week. It works for daytime and it works for a night out too. Check out the tutorial below for the easy 1 minute bun!
So first thing we are going to put our hair into a ponytail. I make mine messy, using my fingers to comb but you can make yours smoother if thats what you like!
I use just a simple hair tie close to my hair color. I wrap it one extra time so its tighter. The tighter the hair tie the longer my hair seems to stay “perky!”
I start to twist my hair fairly tight all the way to the ends.
Then I start to wrap the twist to my left- mainly because I’m right handed! You can go either direction…
Then I start to wrap the twist around and in front of the hair tie to my right.
I like it super messy so I pull on the twist a bit to separate the hair for a messy feel.
Showing how I pull it out even more in different areas.
Here’s a behind view of the twist and wrapping towards the left.
I then start to wrap the twist in front and again to the right. *My hair is pretty long so I have to wrap another way around. If your hair doesn’t go around another time skip the next couple steps.*
Another photo angle of the front wrap around. I am also pulling the hair out a little again for the messy look.
I start to pull the hair tie out and hold it with my left hand while holding onto my hair with my right hand. I then tuck the ends of the twist around and thru the hair tie.
Pull the hair thru.
It’s a little hard to see, but I’m still holding onto the ends of the twist with my right hand while I pull hair out again, loosening and messing the bun.
Now, I like my bun messy, so I don’t mind the ends sticking out. I you do, you can tuck them under the hair tie and hide them inside
Pull at the hair to mess it up a little more…
…And voila! The messy bun in less than a minute!!
