Bed Head

Since I’ve never been a fan of a perfectly coiffed do, I almost always carry a teaser brush in my handbag for when I need to add volume and mess to my sometimes lackluster hair. This attempt at a just-rolled-out-of-bed hairstyle may be perplexing to some who can’t quite understand why having seemingly disheveled hair is a good thing. But the bedhead look can be effortlessly chic and sultry – if done correctly. I personally like to first protect hair with L’Oreal’s Ultimate Strength Solution, wrap sections around a wide barrel iron for loose curls, tousle with fingers to create loose waves, lightly tease the crown of the head and roots, smooth out any wild pieces, and set with Elnett. Throw on a sexy pout and you’re good to go.

    Love it! I do the disheveled, wavy, slightly messy as a time saver, ok to protect my hair……ok ok it’s just laziness. Life is just so much nicer when you don’t spent inordinate amounts of time doing your hair.

    I love the bed-head look. It’s super sexy and looks so effortless. I always try to do my hair like this but then end up over styling it because I feel like I look like a mess. Super cute though.

  30. Seeing that 4th pic with the hot brunette girl (in the sunglasses) made me go buy some brown hairdye. So getting rid of my blonde locks and going back to being brunette. Thanks for inspiring me 😉

    Definitely believe that that you said. Your favourite reaso appeared to
    be at the internet the simplest thing to consider of. I saay to you, I
    certainly get irked even as other people consider concerns that they plainly ddo not recognise about.
    You managed to hiit the nail upon the highest and outlined out the entire thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
