Textured Side Bun

Who tried it: Stephanie, Editorial Intern

Time it took: 4 minutes, 20 seconds

What you need: Teasing comb, hairspray, curling iron, bobby pins, an elastic

How to get it:

1. Start by spritzing your hair with light-hold hairspray, says Barrett. Comb all of your hair up into a high side ponytail, and secure it with an elastic.

2. Take a small barrel curling iron and curl various sections of the pony. Backcomb the whole area for a roughed up look.

3. Pin up your curls in several sections to create a messy bun. Instead of pulling it all together, leave out pieces for a younger, fresher look, says Barrett.

4. Finish by misting your updo with strong-hold hairspray to keep it in place.
