Your Lazy Day Messy Bun Is Now Your Go-To Hairstyle


It's on the Chanel runway so trust us, you won't be judged by your colleagues anymore if you turn up to work in a messy bun.

The perfect out-of-bed or post-gym hairstyle is now having a moment of its own after Sam McKnight styled the supermodels in messy buns for the Chanel runway. With the stamp of approval from the big boys, it seems like we can go around with the messy bun without looking like we didn't give a s*** about our grooming in the morning now.

However, to be honest, you are not alone if you think that the messy buns that we did for ourselves just didn't match up to the one that was styled on the models by Sam McKnight. Although we can't have a personal hairstylist with us all the time, keep these messy bun tips in mind to master that supermodel look.

1. Make sure that you place the bun right on top of your head.
2. Give the crown lots of volume.
3. Let the ends of your ponytail extend out at the base of the bun.
4. Tease the bun a little to let it look a little "unkempt" and natural.

Here's a time lapse video by Sam McKnight to let you have a better idea.
