Whether you are trying to fight the cold, rain, wind or snow over the fall and winter seasons, there is always something to ruin all your best efforts to get the perfect sleek and smooth hair! Which is why we think it's time to throw caution to the wind and embrace the elements: yes, our chosen hairstyle for the coming months is those gorgeous tousled waves that some people simply wake up with, and others can only dream of!
Thankfully, we have a couple of helping hands courtesy of L'Oréal Paris to get us through, especially in the miraculous form of their Matt & Messy hairstyling range. Are you ready to bring back the bedhead hair? Read on for our top styling tips to master the trend...
Bring on the bedhead!
Tousled, textured waves are best created using day-two, unwashed hair, as then your locks have their own grit and volume to add to the effect! If you are working with freshly washed hair, comb to detangle your locks while your tresses are still wet, then work a volumizing mousse into the roots. Blow dry with your head upside-down to add even more volume to your look.
Choose your weapon: we recommend using the Matt & Messy shine-free sponge gel or the sculpting paste if you have a short haircut and the texturizing spray for those of you with longer styles. Be hands-on with your styling and use your fingers to tease your locks to add texture and body. If you are using a gel or putty formula, warm the substance with your fingers before you apply to make it easier to work with, and use sparingly: leaving some of your strands putty-free will give a more varied texture to your look!
Add a final touch by switching the side of your parting: this will give your hairstyle more volume while adding to the tousled 'I woke up like this' effect. Fix your part in place with a spritz of hairspray and you are ready!
