How To Get The Fishtail Messy Bun As Seen On Under The Gunn

Episode 11 of Project Runway’s “Under The Gunn” was the Benefit Cosmetic’s challenge where the designers created pieces for real women with real issues. The blowpro team created hairstyles for the women that fit their personalities and lifestyles.

This messy, fishtail bun is perfect for an elegant yet trendy style that can be easily recreated at home.

 

Step 1:

Using a curling iron, begin to build body in the hair by curling 1″ sections throughout entire head. Spray textstyle dry texture spray on each section and you can choose to gently back comb with a styling brush for added texture.

 

Step 2: 

Once you’ve curled and back-combed, gather hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Separate 1-1 1/2″ section of hair to fishtail braid, clip away. Wrap remaining hair around the elastic and pin to create your messy bun.

 

Step 3: 

Fishtail the section you left out of the messy bun. You can also choose to create a classic braid. Secure the end of the braid with a clear elastic and wrap around the messy bun pinning into bun to secure.
