Hairstyle: Messy Side Bun

Hi everyone, hope you all had a lovely Easter Weekend. I sure had a crazy long weekend. Today I will show you my hairstyle on Easter Sunday. In my Penneys/Primark Haul I did awhile back I mentioned I bought a bun and had no idea on how to actually put it into my hair but after messing around with it I finally sussed it out! 

What you need:
Bun holder 
Two bobbins
Pack of clips

Step one: Back comb your hair and tie your hair into a pony tail where ever you want to place your bun. I decided to a side bun so I tied my hair into a side pony tail.

Step two: Next take the bun and pull your hair through it. Now spread your hair around the bun making sure your hair completely covers it! Take a bobbin and place it over the bun making sure its securing your hair.

Step three: Depending on the length of your hair you will have extra bits of hair sticking outwards at your head. Now twist those extra bits of hair where you put your pony tail, basically hiding those bits by cliping them. Spray with hairspray.

If you prefer having your hair pinned right back leave out the back combing and comb your hair so that it looks sleek and there are no bumps,lumps and strands of hair sticking out!
My hair is very thick and I also wore my extensions because my own hair is too short too fit around the bun.

The finished look:

Here you can properly see my back combing, I created a little bump on the top and my messy side bun with strands of hair out. This look only took me 10 minutes to do, it's easy & simple and I will definitely wear my hair like this again!
