The 1-minute hairdo for thick, fine AND out-of-control hair

By Andrea Zanetich

If you’ve got thin hair, this hairstyle makes it look thicker. If your hair is really thick, this’ll get you looking polished in a flash. And if your hair is just kinda nuts, it’ll make it look under control.


The Messy Bun


To perfect the messy bun:
  1. Make a pony high and tight – as an added bonus, this’ll act as an instant face lift.
  2. Wrap your hair around it – do it fast, even if you’ve got more than a minute to spare.
  3. Pin it in place with bobby pins.
  4. Don’t fuss over it, you’re done.


Here’s some messy bun-spiration to get you going:
