Sometimes, a messy hairstyle is the best hairstyle, especially if your mane is misbehaving and sleek strands or perfect waves are just too much effort. This voluminous, medium-length 'do is quick and easy to achieve with either dry or damp hair, and you can get the look by following the tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1

If you're starting this tutorial with damp hair, apply a volume-enhancing mousse and rough dry it. When your mane is only slightly damp, flip your head upside down and complete the blowout. This will add volume and lift the hair at the root.

If you're starting with dry, second day hair, spritz your roots with dry shampoo, then brush it out.

Step 2

Part your hair on your favorite side, raking it into place with your fingers instead of a brush or comb. This will fix the part without smoothing down the texture you just created with the blow-dryer.

Step 3

Mist the roots and the lengths of your hair with a volumizing hairspray, then gently backcomb it in sections. To do this without damaging your hair, push the hair back on itself, remove the comb, and repeat.

Step 4

When you're happy with the amount of volume, gently smooth the hair down with your hands, then ruffle the top and sides with your fingers to create a slightly windswept finish.

Step 5

To lock in your style, complete the look with plenty of strong-hold hairspray. That's it!
