A goal we would probably all like to achieve is the "I woke up like this" hairstyle, the kind of look that seems totally natural with a few styling tweaks that make you look totally "you", just a really good version. The tousled ponytail is a great option for this. It's the perfect everyday hairstyle, one that is just unkempt enough that it looks like you might have rolled out of bed that way, but styled enough that it doesn't resemble a bird's nest. It's also a confirmed classic so you always know that it will always look up to date.

If you're after a look that's romantic and screams effortless style, but doesn't require a lot of maintenance or preparation time, then the tousled look might be the one for you!

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse
Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray
Blowdryer with diffuser
Hair elastic
Bobby pins

Step one

Start by applying Elastic Curl Mousse throughout towel-dried hair. Make sure it's evenly distributed from root to end by using a comb.

Step two

You want understated, soft curls to create the right texture for this look, so the best way to achieve them is by using your hands to scrunch your hair while drying with a diffuser.

Step three

Once your hair is dry, spritz Tousle Waves Spray throughout. As with step two, use your hands to shake your hair out and twist small sections together. The result will be a natural-looking pieciness.

Step four

Smooth your hair back and secure it with a hair elastic, making sure it's not pulled too tight. Use your fingers and grab small sections of hair at the hairline and pull them out of the ponytail. Let them frame the face. Like the model opposite, you can also pull some random sections from behind the ear or at the neckline.

That's all it takes!
