Easier-than-it-looks messy updo tutorial

You guys, I have a confession. I’m really not that great of a hair stylist. Yep, I said it. I mean, I love doing hair and all, but I am just like you. I don’t have any training really, I have never been to beauty school. I just happen to enjoying trying new styles and I want to share those with you. Really one of the only reasons I share them is because I want to encourage you to try them too. I feel like because I am a normal gal like you, if I can do it, I believe you can too!

With that being said, you must know that all of my hairstyles shared are simple. If I can do them, you can do them! Today’s ‘easier-than-it-looks’ messy updo tutorial is no exception. There’s a secret trick in there with the way I make the messy bun that you’ll love because it simplifies it.

I know that Valentine’s Day is coming up and for those of you who have dates – whether it’s with friends or the man in your life – you can use this messy updo tutorial for your night out! My husband doesn’t “believe” in Valentine’s Day – whatever that means. I think it’s just an excuse so he doesn’t have to celebrate it. He says (cue my best manly voice) “I love you every day of the year, why do I need to celebrate it?” So romantic, this guy. He’s all mine ladies, back off!
