Ever noticed how all our national style icons have messy hair? Kate Moss, Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung all have artfully scruffy barnets. Not-too-perfect hair stops you looking overdone when your makeup is polished and you're wearing this season's Lanvin-esque, bright silk dress. Just to go down the pub in. Or maybe that's just me...
Keep your hair looking undone, and more than a little unkempt, with these quick tips:
- Rough blow dry hair after washing. You don't need a brush, just use the dryer with your fingers. Tip your head upside down if you need more volume.
- When hair is about 90% dry, ruffle it up with your hands whilst blasting from different directions with the dryer for a more natural, messy look.
- Add texturiser to the ends, such as Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, (£16), to make the hair less fluffy
- Sienna and Kate generally look like they don't brush their hair too often. It's an obvious point but go easy on the brushing and let your hair get a windswept look – (not too tricky in this weather!) Wearing sunglasses on the top of your head, or a pin to the side like Sienna, also ruffles up the hair. This creates temporary layers around the face and looks suitably dishevelled.
