If you have medium to long hair, a messy braid is another fun hairstyle you need to try. This hairstyle makes your hair look voluminous and super chic. It could be a little difficult to get this hairstyle right on the first go, but with a little practice, it barely takes two minutes to nail this look!

Step 01: Brush your hair to remove any tangles.

Start 02: Create a deep side parting and separate each section in two again, leaving you with four sections of hair.

Step 03: Starting with the section on the far left, cross underneath the next section, then over the third section, then under the fourth section, weaving your hair as you go along. Continue this with each “new” far left section until your hair is completely braided all the way down. Secure the end of the braid with a clear elastic.

Step 05: Gently tug sections of the braid apart to loosen things up a bit for a messy look.

Third day hair with no time to wash? Here’s the perfect hairstyle to flaunt on those days. Simply tie your hair in a messy bun and then accessorise it with a scarf or a headband. Understated yet uber chic, this hairstyle is so simple to create that we can’t even! 

Step 01: Flip your head upside down and secure all your hair into a loose, high ponytail. Remember this is messy, so don’t worry about perfection; some texture is ok.

Step 02: Twist the ponytail and spin it around the base and wrap below the bun. Secure it with an elastic and bobby pins, but leave the tail out at the end.

Step 03: Next, wrap your head in a scarf in any way you like. You can even weave it through your bun for a fun twist.
