Fake Bangs + Messy Bun

Hello my sweets.  This is just a quick hairstyle I wore recently as a change to the messy bun.  I don't have side bangs, but I faked some.  I'll show you how!

1. First, part your hair as if you had side bangs.  It's easiest to do with a comb, and you can see how I kind of did it in the last picture.

2.  Next, leave your faux bangs hanging in your face, and pull the rest of your hair back into a high ponytail.  You could leave it this way, but for a messy bun don't pull it completely through the last time, creating a loop.  Pin this loop into a bun on your head.

3. Now, take your section of side bangs, and pin it behind your ear.  If you have layers, you will probably only need one or two pins.  If you don't have layers (like me), pin the section behind your ear and then kind of pull it up into your messy bun and pin it.

And that's it!  You could add a head bang, some accessories like hair clips or flowers, too.  This is just a little more polished messy bun look. :)
