5 Messy Updos

Curled Chignon
Not all chignons need to be perfectly styled. Take a cue from Charlize Theron who gave her classic ballerina bun an extra romantic flair by wearing it loose and messy. For this perfectly tousled chignon, gather your hair to one side at the nape of your neck, twist it into a loose chignon, and secure it with discreet hair pins to keep it intact.


Pixie Forever
We can’t get enough of pixie cut’s poster child, Lily Collins’s messy look. With her thick baby bangs on the side, it has the perfect vintage vibe with a fresh, modern appeal. For that extra impact, spritz Ouai Haircare Texturizing Hair Spray into your bangs for a polished yet effortlessly tousled look.


Loose Curls
Supermodel Miranda Kerr adds a little more glam to her style with these loose ringlets. We love absolutely everything about this short updo: the rich dark hair colour, the smooth texture, and Miranda’s soft vintage curls. If you have naturally straight hair, wrap small sections of the hair loosely around the curling iron, and use a low heat setting for soft, romantic curls.


Bangs Obsession
Ginnifer Goodwin shows us how to keep her hair sassy while staying elegant and classy. She sports a trendy pixie, and thick messy bangs that conceal half of her forehead. A regular curling iron should do the trick. Else, you could use curlers overnight to achieve this cute style. However, if you are in a rush, use a texturising product, such as Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, to get that messy effect.


Mini Fishtail
Carey Mulligan is bang on trendy with her small double mini fishtail braids to the front of this updo. This flipped, textured look is perfect for those who want to transform short bob hairstyle. Create wispy ends for an extra edge. Adorable!
