Messy medium-length layers

Messy, wavy hairstyles have become a huge beauty trend of late, and we think they look especially good with medium-length layered haircuts. The texture and layers combine to create a full-bodied style that can be dressed up for a night out or pared down with neutral makeup for more of a daytime look.

To find out how to recreate this hairstyle, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with freshly washed, damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream evenly throughout, then rough-dry it with your blowdryer.

Step 2
When the hair is about 80% dry, flip your head upside down to complete the blowout. This will lift your mane from the roots, giving you a fuller style to work with.

Step 3
Define a middle part using a wide-tooth comb. This will help you to get an accurate line and the comb will glide easily through voluminous hair.

Step 4
Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and muss it all over with your fingers to add texture and more volume. If you think you need to, you can backcomb the hair wherever necessary to fill out the silhouette.

Step 5
To complete the look, mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. This will protect your hair against frizz and unwanted flyaways and give your style long-lasting hold.
