Messy hair no care.

Think we can all agree that messy buns are the jam!

So today we give you the 4-step messy bun. 

1) Tease It Up: You can’t achieve the messy bun without kind of messy hair, right? Tease your hair with a comb and spray your roots with a texture spray or a volumizing spray. We suggest our Bumble and Bumble Surf Foam Spray or Spray De Mode Hairspray

2) Ditch the Brush: Before you wrap your hair into the messy bun, don’t brush it. Brushing it will mess up the teased messy look you just worked on. If you want the effortless I just got out of bed look, use your hands to pull your hair into a ponytail at the crown of your head.

3) Wrap It: Here's the big step. There’s no wrong or right way to do it since it’s the messy bun. Tease your ponytail a little more, and then wrap your hair around the base of the pony. Secure the look by adding a few bobby pins here and there. If the bun looks too put together, let some strands fall out. If you want to add a little something extra to your look, try adding a few braids in. 

4) Finishing Touches: Add some finishing spray to the strands you let out to ensure they don’t get frizzy. We use the Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Finishing Spray. Not only will it leave your hair smell like heaven, but it'll keep pieces from getting frizzy. Let some pieces out on the side, in the front, or from the bun itself. If you're wanting a more styled look, slightly curl the strands you let out. 

There you have it. The messy bun in four simple and easy steps.

April's Product: Pret-a-Powder

If you've come to our salon then we know you've seen us peppering in some Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-powder after styling the hair out.

What a lot of people don't know is that Bumble and Bumble recently came out with an arousal version of this product... and we kind of love it. It's one of the many reasons why the Pret-a-powder line is our April product of the month. For all of April well be posting photos, how to, and facts about this product all over our insta. So, if you're not following us click this link and smash that follow botton (@strawberrysalon). 

I think the biggest questions we get asked about this product is: why are there three different types, and what is each one targeted to to?

Here is a little breakdown of each one so you can choose the right dry shampoo for your hair type. 

*PRET-A-POWDER: We'll start with the OG powder. This is a staple favorite among so many of our stylist. Plus a lot of them do this cool puff thing with it that I never get sick of seeing them do. This product is also great for adding a little volume and some texture to your hair. 


• fine to thick
• straight to wavy
•healthy and/or color-treated

HOW TO USE:Parting the hair into section, shake, or squeeze bottle and massage on to roots. You can also add a pinch to your brush and work through. This is great if your ends tend to get a little greasy too. 

*PRET-A-POWDER TRES INVISIBLE: this dry shampoo absorbs oil and sweat from roots to ends. This lightly scented number leaves no residue. added bonus it has UV filters that help protect against the drying effects of the sun.  


• fine to medium
• straight to wavy
• healthy and/or oil-prone

HOW TO USE: Shake well, hold can about 10-12 inches away from dry hair, and spray. Use fingertips to distribute from roots to ends.

*PRET-A-POWDER TRES INVISIBLE NOURISHING: Formulated with hibiscus extract, this dry shampoo absorbs oil from roots all while nourishing dry ends. Just like the other one is leaves no residue and protects from UV filters.
