I am a creature of habit when it comes to my hair and tend to get stuck in a rut. I also don’t find most up-dos to be particularly flattering on me (I have a large forehead!) and severely pulled back styles do me no favors. However, with the heat wave we are currently having here in Boise I feel most comfortable with my hair up, but still want to wear it in a way that is flattering for me. I LOVE the messy bun/tendrils look that Meghan Markle frequently wears – it’s that perfect balance of chic, yet effortless. And the loose pieces combined with a bit of volume at the scalp keeps the style looking soft and flattering around the face. Best yet – it is so simple and literally takes minutes to do (and I am someone who is hopeless with creating up-dos)! Second day hair is best for creating this look as your hair will have a bit more texture and volume.

I simply follow the tutorial video linked above, and just add extra bobby pins wherever I have flyaways or ends sticking out. The great thing about this style is that it isn’t meant to be “perfect” so just have fun pinning it how you like it!
