polished bedhead

You can be the judge, but I think that Beyonce’s Flawless is an ode to bedhead. There is nothing more perfectly imperfect than messy, tousled, morning “I woke up like this” hair. And while I’d love for you to rock this look all the time, sometimes it needs to be just a bit more polished…you know for morning meetings and coffee with the parents. Yes, sometimes even the classic cool girl bedhead texture requires a blow dryer and a round brush, but don’t worry, you still get to mess it up. To learn how to get flawless messy hair, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart


Step One: Start with damp hair and apply three pumps volume foam and a dime size of defrizz serum. Comb the product through from roots to ends.

Step Two: Spray in protective thickening lotion and blow dry hair with a round brush. No need to worry about making it too perfect, this is really just to prevent frizz.

Step Three: Once complete, twist locks into a low bun while still warm and secure with pins. The chignon will help create the perfect amount of bend.

Step Four: After 10-15 minutes, take pins out and rake fingers through hair. Pulse in dry shampoo at the root and set with a few sprays of primp.
