13 Ways to Work Messy Bedhead Hair
The lazy girl's guide to gorgeously tousled, #wokeuplikethis hairstyles
Down and Tousled Rocking your slept-in hair loose is an art, but it takes just a few minutes to make your hair look polished. If you have bangs, take the time to curl or flat-iron them until they're smooth. Then, take the front sections of your hair and use a one-inch curling iron held vertically to create beach-y spiral curls that bend away from your face. Take a section of hair from the upper part of the back of your head and curl; grab another section just underneath and do the same. Spray the curls with hairspray. When they've cooled, lightly mist the bottom half of your hair with a salt spray like Garnier De-Constructed Beach Chic, $4.59, and scrunch with your hands to blend the curls with the rest of your hair.
If your hair's naturally stick-straight, before you go to bed, comb mousse (like Oribe Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse, $37) into damp hair before putting it in three loose braids. Rita Hazan Salon stylist Roz Safdari also suggests twirling your hair into a bun on the top of your head. When you take it down in the A.M., you'll have that tousled, Alexa Chung thing going on.

It takes a special kind of gal to wake up in the morning, give her hair a quick fluff or twist and head out the door looking genuinely hot. Most of us would get a sympathetic look, an inquiry about our general health or possibly a request to undergo a drug test. That's because that just-rolled-out-of-bed hair usually translates to just-rolled-off-a-garbage-truck hair in real life. But what if you could make bedhead work for, not against you? What if you could take that natural-texture, cool-fuzziness thing you've got going on in the A.M. and make it look chic -- without a lot of fuss? Try these quick styles and little tweaks for making the most of your slept-in locks.
