This Messy Bun for Kids tutorial is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BeautyStat. All opinions are my own and not edited by the sponsor.
My babies have a lot of thick, beautiful brown hair. They’re born that way. Baby shampoo does not cut it, especially for my daughter. She’s five, but I’ve been using shampoo and conditioner on her hair since she was 3. I would have loved to have known about SoCozy Products back then…but at least I know about them now! I love that they are high quality products with clean ingredients, plus, they make my daughter’s hair look great!
I like my daughter’s hair to look cute, but I’m usually in a rush in the mornings getting her ready. This messy bun is PERFECT for those hectic days.First off, her dad did her hair (which I was actually pretty impressed he pulled off the pigtails), and she had been playing in the playground all day. Her hair was not the most fragrant thing in the world, let me tell you! I love how easy it is and I love how you can see her cute face. I created this look this time after school.
To recreate this messy bun for your own daughter, she will need to have at least medium length hair. My daughter’s hair goes past the middle of her back, but it doesn’t have to be that long. You’ll also need a brush, hair tie and bobby pins. I used the following SoCozy.com products in her hair before styling:
- SoCozy 2 in 1 Shampoo + Wash
- SoCozy Conditioner
- SoCozy Detangler
- SoCozy Styling Cream
You can find these at Target.com in the shampoo section. One of my favorite things about blogging is I get to try products that I normally wouldn’t. I was compensated for this post and received SoCozy products from BeautyStat.com and I’m so glad, because I LOVE these!!!

- First, I washed her her with the SoCozy 2 in 1 Shampoo and Wash, then used the SoCozy Conditioner. Even though Riley has a TON of hair, I don’t have to use too much of this product on it…a little goes a long way!
- I have a Wet brush for her hair, but usually, her hair is so tangled after a bath, it needs a little help, so I used SoCozy Detangler as well…works wonderfully! I then brush her hair with the wet brush.
- Next, I dry it with a towel and air dry it as much as possible. I don’t want the blow dryer to damage her hair.
- I then blow dry it straight with a large brush.
- Once it’s dry, I add a small amount of the SoCozy styling cream and distribute it through her hair (again, a little goes a long way!)
- Next, I pull all of her hair into a pony tail. I noticed with the styling cream, it’s WAY easier to get all the bumps out, but the beauty of this style is that it doesn’t need to be perfect!
- For the last time I wrap the hair tie around her hair, I don’t pull it all the way through.
- I then grab the sides of her part way ponytail and gently move them to the front of her head to make the bun.
- I hold it in place with bobby pins.
- Finally, I pull on the bun a little bit to make it a little messier. This step is optional if you want a cleaner look.
That’s it! I like to add a flower hair clip or head band to top it off. It’s adorable on her and I always get tons of compliments. What is your favorite style to use on your daughter?
