The “Undone Look” or “Messy Look” is hip, no doubt! The laid-back surf and street style inspired laissez-faire hairstyle not only a match to the summer, it´s a very convenient and a great look if you need to style your hair quickly.
Wanna try out this Too-Cool-To-Care Look?
“Undone” or “messy” means the perfectly-unperfect hair styling, like when you just hop out-of-bed! But even so, a messy hairstyle it´s not so “undone” as it seems. In order for it to look relaxed, casual and classy, your hair needs the right care, the proper cut and the appropriate styling.
If you got a bad hair cut, or you have matted, dull or even oily hair, it´s not cool at all – it just looks scruffy and bad.
Allow yourself a good hair cut, use only high quality hair care products, such as La Biosthetique Paris, and style your hair properly. Here you´ll find some tips:
The “Messy Look” Quick Styling
After washing your hair just “comb” your hair with your fingers. That´s how you remove knots and tangles while providing volume.
After that, blow dry your hair upside down. That helps you get this specific messy hair style.
To keep that styling for a maximum, use a hair spray – i personally prefer “Formule Laque” from La Biosthetique. That´s it, your perfectly-unperfect hair styling is done!
Undone by backcomb
Another tip, which is a bit more time consuming, is backcombing your hair and using a curler to make them curly. But don´t overdue it, otherwise your hair is styled too perfect..
Classy and messy updos
Another great way to create a “Undone Look” could be updos, like a bun or a ponytail. Just backcomb the roots of your hair and bind them or pin them up in a loosely way. You will do best if some strands escape when doing that.
Make-Up with care
To the “Undone Look” the best fit is a very natural and discreet Make-Up – avoid anything flashy. Less is definitely more!
Styling products for “Messy Hair” from La Biosthetique
The “BIOSTHETICS” collection from La Biosthetique has just the perfect hair styling and finishing products to create that messy “Undone Look”.
For fine hair I recommend ”Volume Powder”, this ultra-fine powder gives hair more body, lift and texture instantly. It has an innovative formula using the latest technology. Tiny silica gel particles encapsulate styling substances that are released on application for an instant result.
Alternatively use “Volumising Lotion”, giving fine hair extra texture and enhanced flexibility. Sunflower extract prevents structural damage by free radicals, panthenol moisturizes and keeps the hair supple and protects from the environment. Before blow-drying, simply spray into damp hair and work in with the fingers Another great product for more body, volume and strong hold at the roots is the root mousse “Volume Booster”. Can easily be sprayed close to the roots and keeps your hairstyle looking fresh much longer. Apply to the roots of damp hair, distribute with comb or fingers.
One of my favorite fixing products is the fast drying non-aerosol hairspray “Spray Artistique”, which protects the hair and provides an extra strong hold. You can spray evenly onto dry or slightly damp hair, which is nice! It brushes out easily leaving no residue.
To give short and semi-long hair texture, grip and pliability, “Matt Clay” could be the best choice – creating textured or highly structured looks on short hair, or give bobs incredible, long-lasting volume and weightless lift that can be manipulated over and over again.
This “Biosthetics” range is available at our hair salon in Palma de Mallorca or at any other “La Biosthétique” hair salon next to you.
