this is something I wear everyday because I do not have a "real" haircut at the moment and leaving the hair open is NO option with a baby :)

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

I try (miserably) to create this but perhaps my hair is too long for it. It's the perfect effortless chic style!

Melissa Blake said...

Post photos when you master it! Would love to see!! xoxo

Diana Mieczan said...

It seems that the secret is to have your hair a bit unfresh because if your hair is too clean, it won’t stay put..(that is what they say)

Sure I would wear it! Can't wait for my hair to get a bit longer so I can pull it off :)

La Feem said...

Super cute, you will look great. I would try it but now I chopped my hair to my shoulders which was not in my plan but oh well, I wish it was long again!!! Look forward to trying this in a few months.

I can't wait for tomorrow!!! What a week. xo

Marie said...

super cute, I love the how-to in 6 steps :) btw, I think Parisians actually put a lot of efforts into looking effortless (le négligé étudié as we call it :) xx

Croatian_Latina said...

I love this! I just have to wait a few more months for my hair to grow longer!

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

Oh, well a while until my hair is long enough for this...:)
But, it sure is adorable!

I always try to do this kind of look, but it always ends up looking too weird. I think you've inspired me to try one more time...

The girl in the last photo uses a homemade spray, made with one part sea salt, three parts water and a few spritzes of leave-in conditioner...
Her hair looks great!

<3, brooke

Jude said...

Thank you so much for the instructions! My hair is terribly unruly and too long, but whenever I try the messy bun, it's a disaster! Hopefully the step by step will make a proper bunner out of me :)

Samantha said...

Messy french buns are my go to for "day two" hair! They're a bit difficult to style if your hair is squeaky clean and they're a chic way to put off washing it!

Simply adore the french style.
I am planning a trip with my lovely french girls from work to Paris in January for the weekend. We will rent a fabulous apartment in Marais and will have foie gras on the Champs Elysee :) Can't wait!

This bun is my go to style when trying to make my wash last an extra day. It also is just perfect for effortless chic.

Poppies and Sunshine said...

I wish I could get my hair to look like this! I am a bit hair challenged. I've been trying to decide on a new look though!

la franglaise said...

J'adore! Some days I manage to get the total French messy bun but other days, it's way too hard. It looks easy but it's not so simple to style a messy bun!

Oh, My Darling said...

Totally wish I could pull this off without look like a hot mess!
