Why is it that disheveled hair on the runway looks amazing, but in real life can look so schlubby? Messy hair poster child Blake Lively may make it seem effortless, but we're betting she doesn't simply roll out of bed looking that way.
Why not try one of these 49 new hair ideas?
To style the messy look, spritz on a Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray type of situation on damp hair for added texture. And here's the real key to pulling off the look: When rocking mussed hair, you need to compensate in other ways. See, if you attempt the look with no makeup and a t-shirt, you run the risk of looking like a college student during exams. Instead, paint on bold red lips or swipe on black eyeliner to demonstrate that you meant to look like this. And nothing looks more fresh than a devil-may-care hairdo paired with a really chic, perfectly turned out ensemble. We'd suggest one of Donna Karan's spring twists on the LBD. Okay, glad we had that talk.
