Hair Envy of the Day: Reese Witherspoon's Dressed-Up Messy Bun


(Jason Merritt/Getty Images North America)We've all probably sported the messy bun—whether casually around the house or even out on a Friday night. Ahem, it's one of this editor's personal go-to looks. So when we spotted Reese Witherspoon wearing a perfectly disheveled bun last night at ELLE's 20th Annual Women In Hollywood Celebration, we were elated. 

Witherspoon kept her look soft and romantic by first adding a slight wave to her blonde 'do. Then by delicately twisting her strands into a messy, low bun at the nape of her neck, she blended the classic elegance of a bun with the contemporary feel of a messy updo. 



Select strands were left dangling from the bun to give it that just-tossed-together look. Soft waves framed Witherspoon's face and gave her hairstyle texture and dimension from even a 360 degree view. See what we mean:

Then twist your hair into a simple low bun, the messier the better. Secure the bun in place with bobby pins and pull out some strands in front to frame the face. Finally, top off with a simple finishing spray. Right now, we're using SHOW Beauty's Finishing Spray. Voila! It's as simple as that.
