That Sounds Fun: Deliberately And Delightfully Messy Hair Is Trending

From the best "messy hair don't care" bun ever to a look that could easily be achieved by just rolling out of bed, this is one trend we'll gladly get behind.

Skip the bobby pins and hairsprays because your next big styling kit could very well just be your sheets. Bed sheets.

Similar to last season’s ultimate no-makeup makeup look – courtesy of the enhanced eye bags at Burberry – literal effortless hairdos were among the stand-out looks at the recent fashion week, the creme de la creme being Chanel and their puffy, fanned out chignons that hair perfectionists will want to shower hairspray with.

Not caring, but still making sure that every out-of-place strand is still in place is key. It may seem like a no-brainer, but there are some key things to note when it comes to nailing the perfect hair mess. Frizz is great for providing texture or a statement look at Sonia Rykiel – yay morning frizz – but don’t be fooled into thinking that messy hair trend has to look like an untameable bird’s nest. Take Louis Vuitton and Emporio Armani for example, they left the fly-aways alone, keeping it au naturel, letting the hairs do as they please.

At Chanel, the buns were messy, but everything else, especially the area closest to the hairline, was kept sleek, neat and polished. The same was at Issey Miyake, though theirs was more of fanned bun that Phoebe Buffay would approve of. Miu Miu’s rebel with a cause boasted bed hair, but the straightened tresses also suggested otherwise. It’s all about balance.

For days where are arm lack the energy to keep combing and combing and twisting every strand of hair perfectly in place – long hair, am I right? – this is very good news indeed. Now, when someone comments on how ridiculously messy your bun is, just say Karl Lagerfeld will approve. Below, we’ve rounded up a couple of hairsprays and tools that might facilitate the mess and further emphasise that we don’t care. Hey, spraying some stuff on beats struggling with a comb and a hairband, agreed?
