Chris Appleton knows how to do great hair, just look at his client list. His roster features numerous A-list names, including Jennifer Lopez, Dua Lipa and the entire Kardashian/Jenner family and he has created so many epic hair moments, like J-Lo at the Superbowl and Kim Kardashian’s platinum blonde locks.

Thankfully, the celebrity hairstylist doesn’t keep his tricks to himself. In the past, he has taught us how to achieve beach waves in under five minutes, how to hide greasy roots and even how to cut your own fringe.

Now, Chris posted a video on Instagram in which he demonstrates how to achieve the perfect messy bun – and it includes a very clever trick.

Describing it as the “easiest hair hack to create the perfect messy bun”, Chris begins: “First of all, split the hair down the middle and then create two high ponytails.

"On the last loop of your ponytail, just pull the hair through to a bun.”

“Once you’ve got two buns, you want to cross them over and pin them into place. I then use the Color Wow Style on Steroids Texturising Spray, £23, just to give the hair a bit of volume and a bit of hold. Then, I just took the very ends of the hair in and pin it into place.”

Once the bun is in place, Chris says: “This is where you get to personalise it a bit and make it a bit fuller and then I like to dress out the baby hairs.

“Pull it out so it’s all a bit wispy and a bit soft and you get that perfect messy bun in just a few minutes. Like I said, perfect for thin or thick hair."

Pretty genius, right? BRB, just need to give this a try…
