Step 01: Start by running your fingers through your hair. This will not only help to gently remove knots, if any, but also add a bit of root volume to limp-looking hair. (P.S. Reserve this hairdo for slightly greasy second or third-day hair. This will give you better hold and some much-needed natural texture.)

Step 02: Next, take a clear elastic and tie your hair in a low half undone ponytail and pull out a few face framing strands from the front. Twist the bun a little bit to hide the elastic and tease it a little bit for that messier, effortless look.

And with this, your quick and easy 2-step messy bun is ready. Complete this hairdo with a cute accessory to make it your own!
