Bedhead style is a must for the summer. I feel it embodies the carefree season. But bedhead can drift easily from ‘just the right amount of sexy imperfection’ to ‘is that Medusa marauding down Broadway.’ But don’t worry, you can achieve your desired bedhead look. Everyone’s mussy style will be a little different but that alluring nonchalance of perfectly imperfect hair is a winner on any wearer. To learn how to get the best disheveled look, click through to style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart
For Curly/ Wavy Hair
You lucky lady, you. While you may fret about how unruly your hair can be most days, messy hair is what your locks do best. All you need is some light styling products like styling whip or wave mist. You don’t even need heat styling. Your bedhead looks great on second day hair and even long after washing, with your scalps natural oils adding some grip and body to your hair. Work it. Dry shampoo is your friend, so if your hair gets a bit more oilier at the roots, just pulse in some refinish and work it out.
Straight/ Fine Hair
Don’t fret, if you have naturally straight or fine hair you too can get the bedhead style you want, it’ll just take a little more effort. Products like curl enhancer or texture paste will add some movement and separation in your locks. Dry shampoo will also give your hair texture. You can also try putting a styling product in damp hair before you go to sleep and then fashioning two buns on top of your head. In the morning you’ll wake up with great wave in your locks. Do some hair flips, pulse in some dry shampoo,and you’ll be bedhead chic in a heartbeat.
