Spice Up The Messy Bun

Spice Up The Messy Bun

 

I wear my hair in a messy bun almost every day and I love it.

But sometimes I want to spice things up a little, especially when my outfit is very simple.

Here I have four different ways to make the top knot more interesting.  

 

1. Wear a bracelet in your hair

The first look is too simple to be true. 

Just put a bracelet on your hair and you are out of the door!

I'm using this beautiful twig cuff here to achieve a delicate look.

Just a little bit bling.

Perfect for work or even a date.

2. Statement hair pin

The second look is also very simple.

By adding a statement hair piece, the messy bun has been given a new life.

How interesting is this 'love' hair pin!  

I would wear it during the weekend

when walking around the city and drinking coffee in a cute cafe.

3. Wrap it up

The next two looks require a scarf or a bandana with a colorful pattern.

I've had this beautiful scarf for years and I love wear it as a head band.

Just wrap it around and you have a  unique style. 

This look works great for a weekend getaway or even just at home reading a book.

4. Twisted fun

The last but not least, twist a scarf into the bun.

It not only add volume to your hair but also add a lot of colors.

I used to wear this look to school everyday and just use different scarfs to match my outfit.
