6 styling ideas for messy hair
So you don't have to fight the frizz
What if we tell you that embracing your frizz could actually be a good thing? Forget the smoothening serums, work up the volume with texturising spray and mousse and learn to love your crazy hair.
It’s a bold proposition, but getting micro-short bangs is the quickest way to transform an unremarkable cut. The cool-girl fringe can be blunt or choppy, but one thing it isn’t? Glossy. Add some sea salt spray to rough it up.

As messy knots get messier, it’s okay to let odd ends stick out and leave bobby pins exposed. It’s as easy as rolling out of bed, pulling your hair back in a low bun and tucking away the short layers with a hair slide.
The thing with surf-texture hair is that it looks better down. So the next time you’re at the beach, put on texturising mousse for height and structure, and then let your hair do its own thing.
Nailing the perfect French plait or a complicated fishtail is tough, so laissez-faire is currently our favourite French word. Spritz texturising spray and twist a few tiny braids. Loop the braids with random pieces of hair and tie together in a low ponytail.
Kinks are good. In fact, you should play them up with a crimper (yes, crimping is cool again). Done right, it adds volume to your tresses and lifts it at the roots—so no more flat, greasy hair.
Some days, it’s just easier to wear your hair in a high bun and embrace the flyaways. Work with your frizz by pulling out a few baby hairs around the crown and amplifying them with hair pomade.
