We've all been there, you press the snooze button one too many times and then bam, your designated hair washing time gets zapped by those insufficient extra minutes in bed. Unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed, you drag a brush through your unclean locks and ponder your options.

Luckily, we have the perfect solution for mornings like these: a messy, windswept bun! As you can see, it looks great, it looks deliberate and it hides all signs of early morning sloth-ness. So, why not try it the next time you have an accidental lie-in?

How to style it

Step 1
Detangle and your hair with a boar bristle brush.

Step 2
Next, spray your roots and mid-lengths with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray.

Step 3
Use your fingers to muss and tousle your hair, then massage the roots for some extra lift.

Step 4
If you want more volume, spray the roots on top and at the crown again, then lift the hair up and tease it from behind with a fine-tooth comb.

Step 5
Gather your hair up as if you were going to tie it into a pony, then loosely twist it into a high bun. Secure it with bobby pins and use your fingers to loosen the hair on top as needed.

Step 6
Complete the look with a generous mist of hairspray. You can accessorize with a headband for some extra detail or leave the bun as it is.

Could this style be the answer to your dirty hair prayers?
