A messy, tousled look can take you far with just the right amount of sassy attitude. Although this style looks like you just rolled out of bed, in reality it takes a little effort to make it happen. Use a blow-dryer to create a messy hairstyle. With just the right products and a little styling know-how, your messy ‘do will look natural and effortless.
Suds up your hair with your fav shampoo and condition it with your favorite conditioner. Rinse your hair well and towel it dry gently.
Slather thickening styling cream generously through your tresses from roots to tips.
Grab the blow-dryer with the diffuser attached and set it to medium heat. Blow out your hair with the diffuser until it’s about 75 percent dry. The diffuser will disperse the heat as your blow it dry and keep some natural volume and body in your hair.
Take the diffuser off the blow-dryer to finish blowing it out. Direct the heat of the blow-dryer over your hair while you scrunch it with your fingers. Keep grabbing handfuls of hair as you blow it out, working until you dry your hair completely. This process should create major texture and a bed-head look.
Curl random sections of hair with the curling iron to give your hair a little more volume. Place the curls haphazardly so they look casual.
Coat your hands with a light layer of texturizing pomade. Run your hands through your hair to apply the product and then finger-style your hair into a messy arrangement.
Check out your mane. When you’re happy with the look, give your hair a final spritz with finishing spray to hold it tight.
