A braid is an fun way to add some texture to your messy bun. This is a really pretty style that highlights French braids up top and on the bottom.

This hairstyle would go great with any date night or formal event you're attending. You don't need to get really into the braid either. If the thought of making two French braids is too much for you to handle right now, you can always just make a small, easy braid on top to add to your messy bun.

This truly is a "messy bun with a twist." Taking your hair in the front and twisting it around before putting it up into the messy bun gives it a really cool look. It also helps to keep those front bangs out of your face when you really just don't want to deal with them.
