Tousled hairstyles are the ultimate in lazy beauty. Whether it's a Sunday or just a much needed day off, unkempt 'dos are perfect because they don't require much preparation, and, more importantly, having bed hair is actually useful. The trick is to play on the texture you have to create a seriously relaxed hairstyle with a slight grunge edge.

Unsurprisingly, this kind of hairstyle is super easy to achieve!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray
Wide-tooth comb
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Take a wide-tooth comb and define a center or slightly off-center part – whichever feels most comfortable. Then comb your hair through.

Step two: Apply Tousle Waves Spray from roots to ends, scrunching with your hands as you go, and comb the hair through again to ensure even coverage.

Step three: Twist a section of hair – about an inch wide or slightly bigger – and blow-dry it completely while holding on to the ends.

Step four: Repeat step three on the rest of your hair.

Step five: Finger comb the hair through to separate it into a lot of loose, tousled waves, then gather it up into a loose side chignon at the nape of your neck. Secure with as many bobby pins as you need, it all depends on how thick your hair is.

Step six: Tease a few strands of hair loose to create a disheveled, slightly unkempt look. Mist your style generously with Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold to finish.

Et voilà, your new go-to weekend hairstyle is complete. Happy styling!
