Casual hairstyles are all about creating an effortless look. The goal is to appear as though you just rolled out of bed looking that good, even if you didn't. To really pull this off, it can be useful to have a few casual hairstyle ideas up your sleeve...

Above, you'll find a gallery of ten different casual looks. There are a bunch of different styles that can work for all kinds of different hair types and textures so you're bound to find something that will look great on you.

Disheveled, not scruffy

One really easy rule to follow when it comes to casual hairstyles is to stick with a controlled, disheveled look. This means styling your hair, especially the longer sections, in a way that showcases any movement you may have while retaining enough control to avoid looking unkempt.

For this, you need to ask your stylist for a tapered cut that doesn't have loads of length on the sides. That way, there will be plenty of length on top to play with, without making your face appear wider than it really is. A disheveled style should show off your hair's natural texture - or any texture you've created - but still remain confined mostly to the top of your head with the back and sides lying flat against your head.

This kind of look suits pretty much all face shapes and ages, and it can be worn just about everywhere from the office to the beach and plenty of places in between.

How to style

For a fairly loose or tousled look, apply some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum sparingly to the top of your head, before scrunching and tousling the longer hair with your fingers. Smooth down the back and sides with your hands and you're good to go. This product is great for anyone with naturally quite wavy or curly hair as it will hold the curls in place without making them look over-styled. You can re-shape on the go because it won't set hard either.

If you would like even more control, try Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty. It has a matte finish and will help to create more groomed-looking casual styles. It's really good for creating height that lasts and, again, it can be reshaped as needed because it doesn't set hard.
