Bed head hair tutorial: try a messy side sweep

Make some messy waves!

Disheveled, tousled hair is, after wet look hair, the biggest runway hair trend of the season if not the whole year... and next. We just love this super textured look with loose waves and more than a little mussed magic about it. Basically, the effortless "I just woke up like this" thing is really, really hard to dislike!

This undone style suits all hair colors and face shapes and is just perfect for dressing down a really pulled-together outfit. It also looks great with accessories so why not team it with a floral crown or pretty headband for a gorgeous bohemian look?

To find out how to get the look, all you have to do is follow the tutorial below.

Step one

Starting with clean, damp hair, spray L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout.

Step two

Loosely braid your hair in a few large sections or pin it up into two buns to dry. If time is of the essence, use a blow-dryer to speed things up.

Step three

Once dried, part your hair roughly on whichever side you like best.

Step four

Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray then scrunch and muss with your hands. This will add volume and add more texture to your locks. To get a really messy finish, tease with a wide-tooth comb, applying more spray as needed.

Step five

Complete the look with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.

What do you think? Will you try this perfectly imperfect look?
