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.

Great waves and beachy tendrils are my most wanted summer style, even if I’m no where near the surf. And for those of you who didn’t know, beach waves and short hair are not mutually exclusive. Whether your hair ends just at your collarbone or hangs by your ears, all you need to achieve #beachvibes is a great styler that encourages waves and texture and a whole lot of inspiration. To get you started I pulled together a collection of my favorite gals rocking collarbone-grazing waves in the notes. –– Michelle Rotbart Click for StyleNotes →

So I recently read an article on a favorite beauty publication of mine that claimed that tousled waves, the summer’s go-to look for both the cat walk and my personal lazy weekends is dead. Per the stylists in the article, sleek and minimalist hair is what will be trending. But I’m going to have to disagree, on a professional and a personal level. Because, hello, the whole I-woke-up-like-this beauty look (which includes tousled strands) isn’t going anywhere, and even Kim Kardashian has given up on contouring. And what could be more minimalist then wearing your natural texture or easy waves? So don’t go tossing your texture spray out yet ladies. Tousled tendrils are here to stay, and in case you need to reinforce yours, click through to the notes to learn what products are essential to your look. –– Michelle Rotbart

For years we’ve been hearing that cool girls wear their hair tousled, ruffled and rumpled. We’ve embraced bedhead, beachy waves, and messy updos. But let’s be honest, it takes a lot of work to look artfully unkempt and well, if you’re going to invest time your style, is it really so horrible that that effort should show? Slowly but surely, coifed hair is making a comeback. From glossy straight looks to refined updos, looking like you tried is shaking off its taboo. Get steps for refining your look in the notes. –– Laura Martin Click for StyleNotes →
