the messy bun



my hair is reaching the point of being unmanageably long. but i’ve been telling myself i’m too busy to squeeze in a trim (err.. i maybe just a little too lazy…) so during the work week, i’ve been throwing my hair up and letting it lay wherever it pleases.

this how-to guide for achieving that effortless parisian messy bun gives me hope that with a little guidance, just maybe i can keep this lazy habit without looking like a sloppy mess.

p.s: if you haven’t been following joanna’s new project with YSL on finding all things parisian- you must go check it out! (photos by anna wolf)
