Top 27 Messy Bun for Medium Hair

A messy bun is a great option of updo that any girl can master. You’ll see the hair gather to form a great ponytail, wrap the ponytail haphazardly around its base, and finally secure it with an elastic band.

Messy buns for medium hair have more options compared to short hair, yet are easier to create than long hair, which is a great advantage if you have the right length of medium hair. You can combine different hair colors to create many beautiful looks and make the updo look more stylish. Here’s our pick of the top 27 messy bun hairstyles for medium hair to slip into and find your own inspiration!
