Recently, we discussed how effortless beauty is all the rage right now. While the tutorial we showcased is one great way to achieve an undone-chic look, I’ve been toying with ways to achieve a perfectly messy hairstyle. If you have wavy or straight hair and want to know how to achieve this look, then definitely give these recommendations a shot!
A look like this is a lot more about product than heat styling, although heat styling definitely plays its part too.
Start with air-dried hair. Personally, I like to wash my hair at night and fall asleep with it a little damp to add some genuine bedhead texture. Then spray your roots with a dry shampoo for some volume and grit. I’m currently loving R+Co’s Death Valley Dry Shampoo. Then spray your ends with a little sea salt spray or texturizing spray. If this makes the hair damp, blast it with a hair dryer until it’s dry again.
Wrap random pieces of hair loosely around a large barrel curling iron to create subtle bends in the hair. Use a flat iron to smooth any ends that may be curled under or flipped out.
Rake your fingers through your hair and scrunch it to emphasize a messy texture and finish with a medium hold hair spray, or better yet Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. You are now the epitome of perfectly messy hair!
Lovelies, what do you think of the perfectly messy style?
