There's no time like the weekend to abandon perfectly polished tresses in favor of textured, messy hairstyles. Loose waves, romantic updos and disheveled chignons are way easier to style with post-party hair, or when you wake up really late and you just can't deal. The trick is to sculpt your bed head hair into something that looks deliberate. Below, you'll find three easy, messy hairstyles that do just that. Which one will you try first this weekend?
1. Doutzen Kroes' romantic chignon updo
As worn by Doutzen Kroes at a recent red carpet event during Berlin Fashion Week, this voluminous, romantic chignon is the perfect do-all hairstyle. You can team it with a casual look for brunch, or pair it with a vibrant makeup look for more formal occasions.
Spritz a volumizing product for dry hair like Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray on the roots and lengths, then muss and tousle your locks with your hands to add body and texture before styling.
2. Messy bun updo
Somewhere between a textured topknot and a ballerina bun, this messy updo is both practical and super pretty! The loose bangs at the front frame the face beautifully, and the soft texture looks gorgeous on just about everyone!
After securing your bun, use an old toothbrush covered in a strong hold hairspray like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to add texture.
3. Natasha Poly's tousled braid
If you want to create a really summery hairstyle that can be worn anywhere, try Natasha Poly's tousled braid. It's the perfect way to deal with second day waves, and it's a great way to channel your inner surfer girl!
Revive your waves by scrunching a texturizing product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray through the lengths and ends before braiding your hair.
