Imperfection is the new cool, especially when it comes to hairstyles. An unkempt hairstyle will make you stand out and help you steal hearts each time you step out. Though poker straight hair is an all-time classic and easy to manage, take the messy route once in a while to experience how it adorably it accentuates your look.

Swap your regular sleek buns with a messy alternative and upgrade your pulled-back ponytails to messier versions. In a world where #iwokeuplikethis and ‘no-makeup’ makeup has reached cool-girl status, it’s only ideal to blend in with the current trends if you want to stay up-to-date with the beauty scene of the time. Here are some hairstyles that look way hotter when messy...

Choose your side

Messy, tousled hair looks hotter when pulled to one side. Ditch your regular hair parting and go for something more sassy and chic. This way, you can easily pull off a desk to dinner look too. If you’re wearing your hair in a braid all day, simply leave them open, pull all to one side and finger-comb as soon as you head out for your dinner date.

Corkscrew curls not only give your hair an extra boost of volume but also look drop-dead gorgeous. From Kangana Ranaut to Katrina Kaif, everyone is embracing ringlets, be it onscreen or off. Another advantage of wearing these curls is that your face looks automatically slimmer with your big hair taking the focus away from your face.

For all those who love wearing short hair, here’s how you can add some glamour to your locks. Wear your lob in messy waves rather than leaving them just how they are (in its natural texture). This flattering hairstyle is sure to take your beauty quotient a notch higher.

Buns need not be perfect. In fact, they look more gorgeous when unkempt. To give your bun a messy finish, finger-comb your hair and pull it into a high ponytail. Next, spritz some hairspray on a fine-tooth comb and gently tease your ponytail from ends to roots. Wrap the teased ponytail loosely around the hair tie. Lastly, leave out some strands on each side for that perfectly messy finish.

Braided messy hair can look cute and add charm to your look. Achieving this look is super easy. Simply braid your hair from start to finish, just how you normally would, and let the layers stay loose to give a messy finish.
