THE TOUSLED EFFECT

Nonchalantly tousled hair sends a message that says, “My life is too fun and I’m too busy to brush or style my hair. Oh, and you know what? I don’t give a sh*t.”

Every rebel-without-a cause since Rebel Without A Cause — think James Dean and Kristen Stewart, Leonardo DiCaprio and River Phoenix – all have one thing in common: an uncalculated, textured, tousled ‘do.

And, upon arriving at JFK to attend New York Fashion Week recently, I found myself in no, not their league but in their shoes. After getting off my flight from Los Angeles, I got smacked in the face with a bloody big dose of humidity.

Quite suddenly, top-knots became a necessity and in doing so, I unintentionally found THE trick to achieve perfectly tousled tresses.

Now, because sharing is caring, here’s my how-to:

STEP ONE:

Wash hair with a volumising formula like Aesop Volumising Shampoo.

STEP THREE:

Next, apply a mousse (don’t be afraid!) like TRESemmé Extra Control Styling Mousse to towel-dried hair and blow dry.

STEP FOUR:

Comb hair by raking fingers through and pull up into a top-knot. Secure with an elastic.

STEP FIVE:

Go about your business with your bun.

STEP SIX:

When the occasion calls for it, let your hair done and run your fingers through, throwing it to the side. Voila – terrifically textured strands!
