I did this yesterday and yes it is the best and easiest! DB Best/Easiest Messy Bun I have ever learned to do! Easy, for any hair type. I have done this on my best friend who has thinner hair, I have done this hairstyl.
LOVE this, as the front pieces are still very light. Not quite blonde and not quite brown, the 'bronde' hair color is a great shade that will give you the highlighted effect without looking overprocessed.
