Disheveled hair with a relaxed feel is the ultimate in effortless style, as demonstrated by this street style find. It's the kind of look that helps to dress down formal attire and one that can also help to tie a casual look together.

The really good news is that it's a really easy hairstyle to recreate for anyone with a little length on top and shorter back and side sections. (The bowtie is totally optional, but does come recommended.)

FYI - For this look, you need to start styling with dry hair, so blow-dry beforehand if necessary.

Step one

Begin by warming a small amount of Deconstructing Cream Wax in your hands. Just apply a little to the tips of your fingers and rub your hands together to emulsify it. Then, work it through your hair evenly, paying particular attention to the longer top section. There's absolutely no rush because the product won't set hard, allowing you all the time in the world to shape and reshape your hair until you've got the style you want.

Step two

Next, muss the longer hair on top and tousle it to add more texture. Twist small sections of hair at random then finger-comb to break them up. You can add more gum as you go for extra hold, especially if you have really thick hair. Just be careful not to overload the strands.

Step three

Use your hands to smooth down the sides and back and then use a mirror to double-check that everything is looking ship shape. If you want some serious contrast with the disheveled section on top, or just a more controlled look, use a comb to smooth down everything else.

That's it!
