One day last week, I got a ton of compliments on my hairstyle. My secret? I went to sleep with wet hair! The just-rolled-out-of-bed look is a surefire hit, and it doesn't require a lot of work. Glossing cream or styling paste can keep the flyaways at bay, or go for a more glamorous look by using a flat iron. Get tips on achieving the style or keep reading for 10 reference points for this simply sexy look.
Are you a fan of that "I just rolled out of bed and have perfect hair" look? Sienna Miller certainly is, as evidenced by the tousled-yet-polished hairstyle she sported while promoting G.I. Joe in Australia. Stylist Sheba Nemerovski of Chicago salon Sparrow shares her easy tips for re-creating the look at home:
- "Start with damp, towel-dried hair. Work a volumizer, such as Kevin Murphy Anti Gravity, through your hair, concentrating on the roots.
- Blow-dry until your hair is 90 percent dry, using only your hands to tousle the hair.
- Once your hair is mostly dry, use a paddle brush to smooth out the ends (a round brush will give them too much curl). Don't worry about being too precise with the paddle brush — the idea is a natural, slightly unfinished look.
- After drying your hair completely, apply a creme such as Kevin Murphy Easy Rider or Umi Creme, lightly through the ends for a bit of separation and a nice satin finish. Voilà! Sexy bedhead!"
