52 Weeks of Pinspiration {Week 18}–The Messy Bun

Welcome to week 18 of my Pinspiration series!

This week I am going to share with you one of my very first pins.  The one idea that I have incorporated into my life on a weekly basis.  Dare I say it changed my life?

Friends, I give to you the Messy Bun.


First of all, let me just say that if you have not ever been to this blog, do yourself a favor right now and check it out.  Kate has so much great stuff on her blog – hair tutorials, craft projects, style tips.  Plus she is just cute as can be. 

Seriously.  Go check it out – http://www.thesmallthingsblog.com/ – I’ll wait. Smile

OK.  So let’s talk about the messy bun.  I probably wear my hair like this at least once or twice a week.  It’s the perfect hairstyle for the days I don’t wash my hair.  Plus it’s a fun little updo that embraces my hair’s unruliness.  It’s great too for whenever we got to OKC and the wind is blowing 40 mph.


I can’t follow Kate’s tutorial to the letter because my hair is too thick, curly, and heavy.  Plus I like my updo a little less messy so I use a few bobby pins and wrap the main sections around my ponytail.

Big thanks to my wonderful husband for letting me micro-manage him and for taking 47 pictures of the back of my head before getting a couple that were just right. Smile

Have you tried any new Pinterest-inspired hairstyles?  Feel free to share a link in the comments.  Now if you’ll excuse me I need to make an appointment to my split-ends trimmed. Smile 

Peace, Kelly
