God, I love lazy-girl hair. Why wake up inordinately early to lather up a storm on your scalp, when you could just roll over and press snooze? Yep, your hair might look like it could do with a wash. But we won't worry about that. Nope, we're A-OK, because: messy bun.
In fact, the knottier and more mussed up the better. One woman's tangle is another woman's volume – it'll save time on the backcombing.
There's something sexy, nonchalant and infinitely appealing on a slightly ramshackle topknot. The bundled-up style not only provides a humidity-proof option, it also masks second-day hair sins and cuts out the need to blow dry. And, a bun look great with any outfit - smart or casual. Just ask Meghan Markle.
It doesn't take a moment to create either. Pull your hair back into a high pony (you don't need to worry to much about it looking neat), twirl the pony into a long spiral, then wind it round the hairband used to secure your ponytail in place. Pin it with bobby pins to keep it in place if you have a bit more time, or stick to a second elastic if you're in a rush.
To make it artfully dishevelled, massage your fingers over your hair line to release the little wispy bits, pull out the shorter sections either side of your ear, and give your bun a wriggle to release any extra fronds.
