3 Undone Hairstyles That Make Messy A Must

Have you heard about the latest street-style trend fashionistas everywhere are keen to copy? It’s called “laid-back chic,” a look that focuses on mixing tailored, sophisticated style with more casual aesthetics. The result is an ensemble that’s ahead of the fashion game but that looks as if minimal effort were involved in its design. The idea has also translated well into the beauty-sphere, where natural makeup and undone, textured hairstyles are a must. To master the messy-hair look, we’ve rounded up three of our favorite dos in which imperfection rules and sleek strands are a no-no. That’s right—it’s time to embrace your sloppy-chic side.

The messy bun
Where to wear it: daytime events like work, shopping, lunch, or travel
How to style it:
1. Finger comb hair into a ponytail at the height you like and secure with an elastic.
2. Mist hair with Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Hairspray. This essential product will provide tousled, airy fullness for a windblown look.
3. Pull hair around scalp to loosen up the hold, creating a round shape and adding height. This is key, so your style doesn’t look too polished.
4. Mist ponytail portion with Garnier Fructis Full Control Anti-Humidity Hairspray and tease hair to add grip and texture.
5. Twist ponytail around base of elastic and casually secure to base with bobby pins. Don’t worry if some pieces look loose.

Bedhead waves
Where to wear it: warm-weather nights outside that call for an easy but sultry style
How to style it:
1. Divide dry or damp hair and clip into sections
2. Twist each section into pin curls using bobby pins and mist with Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Beach Chic Sea Salt Texturizing Spray to hold your waves in a natural—not stiff or weighted-down—way.
3. Let air-dry or use a hair-dryer.
4. Remove clips and finger-comb hair into messy, piecey waves for a natural look. Secure style with Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Hairspray for extra oomph.

An undone braid
Where to wear it: beachside, music festivals, weekend daytime parties—anywhere you can let your free spirit show
How to style it:
1. Make a side part using your fingers and gather the side with more hair in front of your shoulder.
2. Separate hair into three sections and spray Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Dry Touch Finish Spray throughout each section for texture and grip.
3. Braid loosely, allowing strands to fall out, and secure with an elastic.
4. Finish with Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Hairspray, gently pulling on hair around scalp to loosen up the look.
