Trend Alert: The California-Casual Messy Loop

This casual hairstyle (not to be mistaken for the classic loopy bun) has been seen on the likes of Kate Hudson, Lauren Conrad and Jennifer Garner this week alone. What was once regarded as a messy and unkempt updo is actually très chic nowadays. It's popular because of its practicality. It's a great way to get your hair off your face and neck for sports or just for a stroll during the hot Summer days.

It's easy to achieve, too. To find out how to create this California casual hairstyle,


Simply pull all of your hair back in a high ponytail. Before you loop a snag-less elastic around your hair for the second or third time (depending on how thick your hair is), do not pull hair all of the way through — only pull it halfway through. This will create a loose loop. If your hair is layered, pieces of hair should fall, as will any wisps or short bangs — which is what makes this style so relaxed.
