Messy Bun Updo

First of all, thank you AutumnLeaves and Schnauzermom for your nice comments about my daughter's hair.  And A.L., you are correct. She has my hair and figure, but she gets her face from her dad's side of the family.

Today I wanted to try something a little different, so I fashioned this messy bun. It may just be a bit too messy.

I made a ponytail and I only pulled the ponytail through a little less than halfway after the last loop of elastic. Then I took pieces of hair and pinned some over and others under the elastic.  It was very easy. It is funny though that it takes me a bit longer to make a messy bun than to make a neat-looking bun.

I think the next time I try this, I'll make braids with strands of hair next to my face, or I'll French braid the sides. Perhaps I'll part my hair on the side, and make the bun assymetrical.

Anyway, at this point, it's a work in progress, and this was just a test run.

After a couple of days with a lot of family and a lot of chatter, I find myself with an evening alone.  Everyone else has somewhere to be. As usual, I'll likely watch a movie. One of these days, I really must talk about some of the films I've enjoyed. I really am a movie buff.

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Saturday, and I wish you a good Sunday.

Love to all.  'Til tomorrow.


  1. It is a quite gorgeous messy bun! Reminds me of a bouquet of flowers and I don't think you can go wrong with that. Really, darlin' is lovely!

  2. I like it, very pretty! I'm a movie buff too.


I love hearing from you.
