Messy Bun | Avalanche Salon and Spa

Hit the snooze one (or three) too many times? We’ve all been there. When you’re in a rush you don’t have a lot of time to devote to your hair. Luckily there are quick and easy hairstyles to try when you’re in a hurry.

The Messy Bun

The messy bun is a staple in every woman’s life. It’s quick, simple, and can be dressed up or dressed down depending on your outfit. Here’s a step-by-step guide to nailing your next messy bun.

  • Gather your hair into a high ponytail
  • Twist your ponytail from roots to tips
  • As you twist, your hair will start to kink. Wrap your hair in that direction until all your hair is in a bun
  • Secure your bun with a hair tie and style it with bobby pins
  • Messy bun!


Braids look great, keep your hair tame, and can generally be done quickly! Trying to describe a fishtail braid or a French braid can be difficult, so we’re going to let our friends at Cosmopolitan give you the run down.


A ponytail is a great last minute hairdo, but it doesn’t have to look like one! Use a teasing brush to tease the hair close to your roots, gather your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Pull out pieces for a messy look or add some product for a more slick backed look.
