Hair Tutorial: Pouf & Bun Casual Updo

Today I wanted to share another highly requested video, a tutorial of my everyday updo. I had gotten several requests from having posted videos with this hair here, here, and in my Boston haul here. It's supa-dupa easy so hair noobs, this is perfect for you! ;)


Tools used:
2 bobby pins (basic black here)
2 hair ties (my favorite no-snag kind here)

How it looks from the front. Pretty basic.


From the back.


It is not easy to correctly snap a good shot of the top of your head, I've found.
This was the best I got. ;3


I do this hairstyle at least once a week, and especially more often when the weather gets warmer since it gets my (tons) of hair off of my face and neck. It's also great for those of you who have bangs growing out and don't know what to do with the awkward in-between stages of growth. 

Let me know if you decide to do it! I'd love to see your version on my facebook page here. :D


Tell me in the comments what you usually do with your hair on bad hair days. You know everyone has them, and I could use some fresher ideas for my hair too! Share, share, share!

  1. Aww the bun looks so cute. Definitely gotta try when it gets humid outside. Whenever I have a bad hair day I usually wear a cute hat, pin my bangs back and tie my hair into a high pony hair, or just tie it up in a bun with some pieces hanging down. I curl them so they look less messy and more elegant.

  16. karen: I'm not 100% sure I remember, but I think it was MAC 3D gloss in Racy. It was a limited edition gloss I picked up at CCO so I'm not sure where to find it now but I LOVE it! Definitely recommend it if you come across it.

  20. Thanks for the tutorial Jen! My solution to a bad hair day is usually to just throw it into a pony tail - quick and easy :)

  21. when I have a bad hair day I usually do some kind of side braid and pin the rest of the hair back, as I got some layers in it. If I feel like it's really bad hair day them just a messy ponytail will do for me, as it keeps the hair away from the face (so it doesn't get more greasier) and the messes up appearance don't make it look too flat. Try ir out it's really nice in the summer. :)

  22. You are a doll! I think you can pretty much pull off any look that you want to! I do something similar when I don't feel like fixing my hair, but I have to leave my bangs down b/c i feel that my forehead kinda looks big when I put my hair up.

    Your blog is becoming one of my favorites to read!
