Phoebe Tonkin hairstyle inspiration: sideswept waves vs messy locks

Which of Phoebe Tonkin's hairstyles gets your vote?

The Originals actress Phoebe Tonkin has been spotted with a few gorgeous red carpet hairstyles of late, and two of our favorites are her sideswept waves from the GQ Men of the Year Awards, and her messy bedhead hair at the March of Dimes Celebration.

Both of these styles would look great on anyone with medium or long hair, but the question is, can you pick a favorite?

A modern classic

Sideswept waves have been a red carpet staple in Hollywood for the best part of a century, and it's not hard to see why. We love Phoebe's understated approach to this classic look, especially because of how glossy those waves are!

Styling tip - To recreate Phoebe's glossy finish, mist your completed style with a finishing spray to add shine and keep frizz at bay.

Disheveled beauty

Artfully mussed hair (read: deliberately mussed) is a huge hairstyle trend right now. Maybe it's because the #wokeuplikedis thing wasn't going anywhere, or perhaps it's because messy hair and a great lipstick make for a particularly sultry beauty look. Either way, Phoebe nailed it.

Styling tip - Take control of your bedhead by misting a volumizing hairspray throughout, then scrunch and tease where necessary for a consistent amount of volume all over. For extra height, spray the roots, then massage them with your fingertips.
