The next time you find yourself in front of your mirror trying to get your updo just right, take a step back. Tousled styles are having a moment. Recently, Jennifer Lawrence (left), model Selita Ebanks (upper right), and Olivia Palermo (lower right) have all been spotted sporting this cool messy look.
To re-create the style at home, the trick is to form lots of body as a base. Prime your hair with a texture-enhancing product, like KEVIN.MURPHY's new Texture.Master ($34.95). Then, it's time to customise. Pull random sections of your hair away from your hairline and bobby-pin them at the back of your head. Whether you allow pieces to fall in your face is up to you. In the back, gather a portion of hair at the nape of your neck, and pull it into a loose, deconstructed ponytail. For an even more imperfect and dramatic look, tease pieces of your hair near the hair elastic, and you're done . . . or should we say undone.
