The fastest and most elegant hairstyle for messy hair

So you woke up late with your hair matted down to your head and there’s no time to shower. Quick, what do you do? You rock a half bun, of course.

It’s become the signature look for off-duty models and celebs over the past few years because it’s surprisingly versatile (you can wear it tightly wound for a sleeker appearance or loose and looped for a more casual vibe) and it’s super easy to do. Not to mention, the smaller bun on top and the fullness at the bottom create the perfect juxtaposition for a thicker appearance overall.

You can also wrap a few sections of hair around a large curling iron to add some texture before pulling back strands from the top of your head.
