We all have those days when we don’t feel in the mood to wash our hair. Well, this hairstyle works the best on greasy, non washed hair! Second or third-day hair will look equally good like you have been to a hairstylist.

Use a dry shampoo to add texture to your hair. The girl in the video says this messy updo for short hair looks the best if your hair is a bit greasy. Use a comb and make sure the dry shampoo is evenly deployed. Add a lot of hair spray to get as much texture and volume as you can.

Use an elastic to secure the bun. Gather the hair at the top of your head, put an elastic around the waist and tie it to the half, then wrap it, and then another half of the bun. The key is not to make it look perfect but messy. Use bobby pins to tuck in the hair ends and get the bun shape you prefer.

Twisted Messy Updo

This is one of those updos that you can easily style but wear for multiple occasions. It is elegant enough for wedding celebrations, but also chic for work or other daily events.

Now you should gather your hair into a low messy bun. Make sure to leave some hair strands out and secure a ponytail with the elastic. Twist the hair to turn it into a bun and use another elastic to secure it.
