Not many people have the luxury of waking up with a perfect hairstyle that's ready to face the day... whatever all those hashtags on Instagram may suggest. In fact, there are times when #wokeuplikethis bed head hair is flat as a pancake on one side and spikier than a porcupine on the other... for us at least.

While this somewhat asymmetrical approach to tousled hair is a real attention grabber, odds are it's not going to be ok at work, or anywhere you need to look put together. So, what do you do?

The answer to that is simple: you make the messiness look deliberate!

Mussed magic

The trick to making real bed head hair look like the on-trend bed head hair is taming it slightly. To do this, you can sweep it all up into a messy bun, topknot or ponytail, you can braid it, or you can shape it with bobby pins.

1/ Get the texture just right

Work a small amount of L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the mid-lengths and ends for a perfectly piecey finish. You can also use it to help hold a side sweep in place - THE go-to quick fix for any bad hair day!

2/ Perfect + tame your waves

Tousled waves look gorgeous on everybody. To perfect what a good night's sleep gave you, spray Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray throughout dry or damp hair, then blow-dry in large twisted sections.

Once dried, tease the hair where necessary to fill out your style, then finish with a veil of hairspray.

However you decide to style your bed head hair, don't be afraid to embrace it! After all, staying in bed a little longer to make such a mess was infinitely preferable to getting up early for a DIY blowout, right?
