How To Create a Messy Bun with Hairpins
To create a modern, messy bun with hairpins, first gather hair into a pony tail anywhere on on your head. Keep in mind that your ponytail placement will determine where the centre of the bun will be.
Next, divide your ponytail into sections and lightly backcomb. The texture will help the hairpins stay in place.
Wrap your backcombed ponytail around the base and pin in place by holding the hairpin perpendicularly to your head and catching about two centimetres the hair that’s in the bun.
To secure, flip the pin flat against your scalp, and push in toward the centre of the bun.
