Hair questions #1: Messy bun – Do or don’t?

messy bunWe all know that hair is a big thing to females…

Having a good hair style can either be a day-maker or a day-breaker, with us women instantly getting a boost if our ‘do is on point.

So, in light of this, I have a big hair-related question for you all today; are messy buns a fashion do or a fashion don’t?

I’m not talking around the house obviously, as we all know that this is the perfect style to rock when you are trying to brush your teeth and cleanse your face, I’m talking about OUT IN PUBLIC. As in, letting the whole wide world see your messy (but actually kinda perfected) ‘do.

For me, I have definitely worn this style a few times (see right) and not just to the gym. You see, my work allows for casual dress, so I have often rocked this hair with like a jersey t-shirt, as kind of like a sporty but smart look. I do worry sometimes that rocking this does make me seem younger however, as it’s kind of like the hairstyle you had when you were five, or even like a ‘hipster’ who is just too cool to worry about what their hair looks like.

The thing is, my hair is quite short at the moment too (just above shoulder length), so putting in up like this gives a longer effect to my hair. It also means I can do something different with it on days I am bored of wearing it down.

So what is your opinion? Do you like your hair to be perfectly sleek or coifed, or are you a fan of the messy/just-out-of-bed look once in a while?

I think I am going to experiment with both still whilst I can still get away with it in my twenties!

    I think it depends how messy or how it’s done. I’ll wear them on occasion, but I also see girls rock the lopsided Pebbles Flinstone look where the bun is really far forward on their head and a bit crooked, and to me, that’s a don’t. Yours looks very pretty though
