Messy hairstyles are growing more and more popular by the day, but how do you accomplish a successful messy style without it looking sloppy? Messy styles are perfect for day-to-day activities and casual meets, especially when you have no time to create a polished look. When there’s not even a minute to spare, just work with ‘day-old’ hair, skip the shampoo and transform it into a stylish messy ‘do. As long as it’s not too greasy, it’ll be fine! Here are some ideas for you to try:
Loose, messy bun
If you have the length to spare, try one of these. You can make a loose, messy bun without the need for a brush, just your fingers! If your hair is tangled and unwashed, it will be perfect for this hairdo. Simply flip your head upside down and pull your hair into a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Wrap the tail around the base until your hair has formed a bun, and fasten it to the base of the first elastic band with a second elastic or with bobby pins. Pull out a few locks to frame your face and you’re done!
Messy curly hair
With dry or just-washed hair, you can transform thick curls into a natural, glorious mess. To style dry curls, use your fingers or work in a light mouse to add more volume. On wet curls, absorb the excess moisture with a towel, flipping your head over and scrunching the curls to create body afterwards. Flip your head back up and use mousse if you want to add an extra boost in body.
Short, messy hair
If you have short to mid-length hair, use gel or mousse to create a messy style. Use a palm full of styling product on dry or just-washed hair. Rub your hands together with the mousse or gel and work it into your locks, tousling the hair until you have achieved the desired messiness.
