tousled hair

Many of us love tousled hair because there’s no pressure. No need to keep everything in place totally perfectly. You actually want your hair to be messy and out of place. A little beachy or a bit windblown are things that you’re looking for when getting your hair into its tousled state. However, there is an art to messing up your hair in the correct way. Every time you see a model or celebrity looking perfectly disheveled you know there’s a pro behind it.

If quintessential autumn, off-duty New York style is a combination of heavy knits and windblown hair, then the look for spring is definitely a combination of leather motorcycle jackets and laid-back tresses. Seriously, take a look around, who isn’t rocking a cool leather jacket? This could also be an it look, since so many celebrity couples and cool single gals also don this laissez-faire style. Just take a peak at Dakota Johnson and boyfriend Matthew Hitt matching looks or Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Balenciaga and bun. Based on this week’s meh weather forecast, I think you’ll still have plenty of time to wear this great downtown look.

Todashi Shoji’s fall collection was daring and understated. Many of the looks featured tattoo patterned mesh combined and intricate cutouts. The palette was dark and simple; many of the looks were solid black. Makeup was nude except for a smokey metallic eye and hair was textured, loose, and damp, but with lots of definition. The models looked, not air-dried, but as if they’d been caught in a storm. The result was both grungy and glamorous, with fullness and defined texture that showed off layers and fringe. Lean to create the look at home in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →

Sometimes looking chic doesn’t have to mean lots of effort. Case in point: this simple 2-minute updo. A center part and messy low loop create an elegant silhouette that’s easy to customize. Wear it in the daytime with a few loose bits tucked behind the ears or dress it up for evening by creating a wider shape at the neck and adding some shine. However you wear it, you’re sure to look stylish and effortless. Click the notes for step-by-step instructions. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
