Autumnal messy hair

Autumn hair inspo

It's the first day of autumn and braids, messy updos and effortless "just got out of bed" hair styles are all on trend for AW14. These dishevelled styles were all over the catwalk at LFW from Erdem, Dolce and Gabbana, Kinder Aggugini and Tom Ford.
  1. Hats are a saviour for days with bedhair or for hiding last nights locks.
  2. Tousled braids are huge this year and are super easy to create.
  3. Loose, low pony tails are a perfect lazy Sunday style.

I have been growing my hair for the last year after having a super short cut, so messy buns have been a go-to hairstyle for me whilst I've been nurturing my hair and encouraging it to grow. Keeping your hair in a bun or braid is perfect for people who want longer hair. You can create a chic, messy updo in minutes with most natural hair types and it doesn't have to involve any laborious blowdrying or straightening; both of which are a big no-no for when you're coaxing your locks to get longer. 

Allow hair to dry naturally and try not to over wash, these combined will actually make it easier to create a messy updo or a dishevelled braid. Just-washed hair is a nightmare for updos and braids as most often, it is too slippery and soft to stay put in the style; so do your "do" a favour and put a ban on heat tools and overwashing for a while. Instead, teach yourself to fishtail braid and embrace the tousled trend this autumn!
