Tousled Updo Hairstyles
For an updo hairstyle with a tousled look, first you need to blow dry your freshly washed hair with the nozzle of the hairdryer pointing downwards. Wrap sections of your hair around a round brush to create soft waves. Once all your hair is blow dried and wavy, spray it with a hairspray. Brush your hair back and gather it at your nape to create a low ponytail. Pull the gathered hair through an elastic band halfway, and loop the ends through the elastic band. Use bobby pins to pin the hair in place, and pull out some strands to create a sexy look. To finish off the look, gently mist your hair with some additional hairspray.
For Short Hair
For this, you need to have hair that comes up to your chin. First, you need to wash your hair with a volumizing shampoo, and condition it with an anti frizz conditioner that will add moisture to your strands and give it a glossy shine. Next, apply a coin-size amount of finishing cream through your wet hair and make sure that each strand is coated with the styling product. Now, flip your hair downwards and use a diffuser to dry your hair. Once you are done drying your hair, flip your hair back and dry the sides. After all your hair is dry, use a round brush and a blow dryer to blow dry the hair around your face. Now, use the narrow curling attachment of your curling iron and curl random one-inch sections of your hair. Make sure that you curl only the ends of your hair till mid-shaft and keep the hair around the roots straight. Finish this style by gently running your hair around the curls.
For Medium Length Hair
Wash and condition your hair with a moisture-infusing shampoo and conditioner, and blow dry your hair until it is partially dry. Now, section your hair into two-inch squares all along your head. Make sure that you create zigzag patterns instead of straight sections while sectioning your hair. Take the first section of hair in your hands, and apply a dollop of mousse on this section. Twist this section and pin it to your head with a bobby pin. Repeat this process on every section and pin it with bobby pins. Blow dry each twisted section of hair with a blow dryer for 15 to 20 minutes. After this, remove all the bobby pins and use a medium-sized round brush and blow dryer to smooth out the hair. You can also use a curling iron to curl each section of hair. Run your fingers through your hair to give it a just out of bed look.
Tousled bob hairstyles are also very popular and require very low maintenance. These hairstyles are a great way to create a casual fun look with minimum effort.
