Tousled hair

Right now, the only hair trend that really matters is effortlessly pretty tousled hair. It's quite literally everywhere at the moment, from the runway to the red carpet to the real world and beyond! Finally, the kind of messy, unpolished locks most of us manage to achieve by accident are a good thing, even at the Oscars. Having more or less replaced blowouts entirely, deliberately undone hair is the perfect trend for all the lazy girls out there. If you've been wanting to roll out of bed and go straight to work/school/anywhere without doing much to your hair, now's your chance.

If you're like us, however, odds are some taming will be necessary... but fear not, necessary doesn't mean difficult or time-consuming. In fact, it can be done in less than 5 minutes when you know what to do! To find out how to master a messy mane, just follow the tutorial below.

Get the look

Step one
Start by running a wide-tooth comb through your hair to remove any major knots then part your hair roughly in the middle or slightly off-center. This will put a subtle vintage spin on your look.

Step two
Warm a small amount of styling wax by rubbing it between your fingertips.

Step three
Once emulsified, scrunch it through the ends and mid-lengths of your hair. Twist and tousle random pieces of hair to add more texture then scrunch and loosely sculpt as desired.

Step four
Spray your hair all over with a finishing spray to add shine and give you good hold.

Top tip - If you want to wash your hair before styling, apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair and rough dry before you apply the gum.
