Wind-blown, disheveled, wild, tangled, whatever you like to call it, unkempt hair is in. Rumpled texture looks low-maintenance, but it can be tricky to achieve, especially if your hair is fine and silky. The trick is to expand the hair without adding weight. It’s a delicate balance, but easy to achieve with the right products and methods. Read on for fool-proof professional tips. –– Laura Martin
Step: Rough dry hair, blasting roots with a warm dryer to add volume. Twist hair into thick coils and continue to dry until all moisture is gone. The coils will enhance texture and expand your shape.
Step: Spray roots with refinish, lifting sections up to enhance volume. With a round paddle brush, backcomb the underside of hair lightly.
Step: If more volume is needed use a crimper or styling wand to texturize random sections.
