Grunge-inspired hairstyles have made something of a comeback lately, alongside a whole host of other nineties-centric trends. The question is, can and should you rock a grunge hairstyle with formal wear?
Dressing up a messy hairstyle
Generally speaking, teaming a formal ensemble with a messy, tousled hairstyle is a great way to balance out your whole look, as long as you keep the clothes, makeup and accessories relatively neutral. When we say messy, however, we mean deliberately styled that way, not the hair you rolled out of bed with...
To be on the safe side, you should probably avoid anything too messy or obviously grungy for things like job interviews - depending on the job of course.
To get an appropriately low-key, textured hairstyle, just follow the tutorial below.
How to style it
Use Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Blow Out LongWear Spray to absorb any excess oil at the root, then brush your hair through.
Part your hair with your hands, then use a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum to create a piecey texture.
Secure the hair into a low pony or messy knot with a hair elastic. If you want something a bit more pulled-together, try a messy bun instead.
Complete the look with a quick mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to prevent frizz and flyaways.
