I have a friend who looks so cute in her messy bun at all times, and she always has people asking her “how to do a messy bun.” She is wearing a messy bun almost everyday, but it always looks really good and like she spent time getting ready for the day! She HATES that I asked her to make the video and take these pictures for all of you, but she's a really good friend.

I personally wear a messy bun all of the time, but I like hers better. After witnessing enough people ask her how to do a messy bun like she does, I knew a messy bun tutorial needed to happen. Thank you T, for inspiring the mom world … one messy bun at a time.
