Q:

How do you give your hair a messy style?

A:

Messy hairstyles are very popular. They work best for women who have long hair that holds texture well. To create a messy hairstyle, you need sea salt spray, a blow dryer, a curling iron, a comb and hairspray.

  1. Spray sea salt spray in your hair

    Use sea salt spray over all of your hair. This creates a lot of texture for a messy hairstyle.

  2. Blow dry your hair

    Use a blow dryer to dry all of the sea salt spray in your hair. Use your free hand to scrunch your hair as it dries.

  3. Curl random sections of your hair

    With a hot curling iron, curl a few random sections of hair. Make loose curls on the bottom half of your hair.

  4. Tease your hair at the crown of your head

    Hold up the hair covering the crown of your head. Use a comb to brush your hair down towards your head. Let your hair fall back over your crown.

  5. Pull your hair into a loose ponytail

    Pull all of your hair into a loose ponytail at the back of your neck. Drape the ponytail over one shoulder.

  6. Set your messy hairstyle with hairspray

    Use hairspray all over your hair to set your new messy hairstyle.
