How to Get a Messy Bun

Get Scarlett Johansson's Romantic, Modern Hairstyle

Last week at a photo call for Iron Man 2, Scarlett Johansson had a total sex-kitten hairstyle. But last night at the flick's LA premiere, she opted for a more romantic look: a slightly messy take on a twisted bun. It's a beautifully fresh, unfussy updo that's perfect for events like weddings and parties.

See more pictures and get tips for re-creating this wavy bun when you read more.

  • Apply a mattifying powder, like Stila Hair Refresher ($28), to dry hair to tone down the shine. This will also provide a base for your curls so they are easier to form.
  • For slightly unkempt curls, first twist hair before using your curling iron. Or, you can always alternate the direction on which way you curl each strand for a similar effect. (If your hair is already curly, you can just skip this step, obviously.)
  • Break up the curl with your fingers and spray your waves liberally with hair spray. Lightly tease your strands all over, focusing on the hairline to create lift.
  • Gather the hair back into a loose, low-slung ponytail. Secure with an elastic. Create a bun by loosely wrapping the ponytail around the elastic, pinning to secure.
  • For the finishing touches, use the end of a rattail comb to loosen up the style. Spray once more to accentuate the slightly disheveled appearance of this style.

This is my favorite way to wear my hair. It's both casual and dressy/elegant. It also disguises frizz that may creep in later into the day or after my dance classes.
