The arrival of humidity and 80+ degree days = frizzy, messy hair, which can be such a pain when dressing up. But you don't have to fight the waves, embrace them! Messy updos are a great way to look formal without looking too stiff. They can be soft and romantic, as well as fun and flirty. So rather than going for a slicked back ballerina bun (a la "Addicted to Love"), go for a more casual look by wearing your hair in a messy updo!
Many of these looks can be easily created by pulling your hair back in a loose ponytail, pinning it up, and pulling out a few loose tendrils. However you can also opt for a more dramatic look by pulling back your locks and teasing them in order to create some major poofage. The best part of this hairstyle is that you can wear it to a formal event, to the office, or to class! Here are some of our favorite messy updos for you to enjoy:
