Artist: Dawn / June 12, 2020

Step 1.

Begin with the guidelines for the face and head shape.

Step 2.

This model for the messy bun is going to be drawn from the side so you will need to draw the profile of her face.

Step 3.

Go ahead and draw out the closed big eyes as well as the long, thick, bold lashes, lids and eyebrows. Don't forget the lips too.

Step 4.

Here, you will draw the beautiful full look of her hair as it's pulled back in a messy bun style. Add detailing to the hair as well.

Step 5.

Lastly, draw the neck shape, the strand lines and a couple curls. Erase the mistakes and guides.

Step 6.

You're done. Now you can color in your model sporting this beautiful, full bodied messy bun.
