As we head toward summer, hairstyles tend to become more understated. Ultra-groomed looks get swapped out for something more pared down, slick becomes tousled and strict becomes flexible. The lightly unkempt look featured opposite is a prime example of what warm weather hair is all about. You want to incorporate plenty of texture and you don't want your hair to look too serious. That said, if you have a job that requires a certain amount of polish, you also need your hair to behave itself overall.
Get the look
If you want to try this hairstyle, first of all you need to get your hands on a jar of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum. This product will give your hair a low-shine finish and won't leave any residue. It also retains elasticity and won't dry hard, meaning you can shape and re-shape the hair as desired throughout the day.
To style: Warm a very small amount of gum in your hands then run it through your hair, starting with the top layers and working through the rest. Whatever you do, don't overload the hair. The whole point of this hairstyle is to maintian plenty of natural-looking movement. Use your hands to tousle individual sections of hair then shake your fingers down through it all, over your forehead. Shape into a slight side sweep with your hands and add more gum if needed.
This style is a great alternative to a tousled pomp or groomed side part. It's laid back, sure, but the shaping demonstrates a certain amount of effort, making it perfect for more formal settings, too. Everything in moderation!
