Tutorial: Easy Messy Glam Hairstyle + Video

It’s a familiar scene.

I’ve just spent too much time doing my makeup (usually because I get fidgety with my eyeshadow) but my hair is still clipped up in a bun and absolutely not on par with my glam lashes and glowing cheeks. I glance over at my phone and there’s just about 10 minutes before I have to leave.

Usually this would make me out in a cold sweat in panic and likely just throw my hair up in a ponytail and hope no one notices. But these days, I have my going out hair routine down to 10 minutes and I’m telling you I can probably do this in my sleep. If you’ve been wondering about the hairstyle I wear most often in my videos and photographs in the past year, here is how it’s done!


  • L’OREAL | Elnett Satin Hairspray
  • JONATHAN | Dirt Texturizing Paste | reviewed
  • JONATHAN | Silky Dirt Shine & Define Cream
My aversion to having styling products in my hair should be no secret to you by now. While I keep trying to work them into my routine (and buying loads of them through out the years), most of them don’t pass the test to truly stay in my everyday routine. These three items however, have been favourites for quite some time!

Elnett Satin Hairspray is probably my most used setting product in the last few years because the fine mist is just incomparable for a drugstore item and it brushes out quick and easy for those casual hair days. It never clumps my hair together and you can use it for building texture or keeping your curls in place without weighing them down. But to really give my hair that slightly messy effect I love, the JONATHAN Dirt products are just as good as they say. Not only do they smell like a delicious vanilla dessert but they are both non-sticky while still providing a bit of worn in effect instead of princess curls.
Thanks to discovering this routine (and mostly my beloved InStyler), I never have an excuse for a bad hair day on my way out to an event or out for brunch with my friends. For me this is truly quick multi-purpose hair that I wear for almost anything. It looks a little done up but never too perfect and all under 10 minutes. Even if you don’t have long hair, I’ve worn this style when my hair was just below shoulder length and it still looks great!

Do you have a quick fix hair routine? I’d love hear your hair secrets!
