Messy is the new neat! The best celebrity tousled hairstyles out there

If 'effortlessly stylish' is how you’d describe your personal style, then we bet that the slicked-back hair trend is definitely not your cup of tea. Ask any hairstylist about the easiest hairstyle to look sultry and alluring, they’d be sure to tell you that it’s the tousled hair look.

Apart from looking super cool and sexy, what we personally love about this hairstyle is that it allows you to embrace and flaunt your natural texture. *phew*. Because let’s accept it, using a hair straightener is not just damaging, but is also quite cumbersome. But if you need any more validation, here’s a list of B-Town beauties sporting these messy updos and looking drop-dead-gorgeous. Get ready to bookmark these saucy looks!


Sonam Kapoor Ahuja

Taapsee Pannu

Sonam Kapoor Ahuja’s tousled hairstyle looks extremely demure yet stunning. Since braids are huge this season, you totally need to give this voluminous tousled version a try. Since the front of her hair is textured, it gives the entire braid a really effortless yet classy vibe.


Alia Bhatt

Taapsee Pannu

Trust Alia Bhatt to dish out refreshing looks, be it with her hair or makeup. This tousled half-up, half-down hairstyle looks super stylish and will look beautiful with Indian outfits. What we love the most about this look are those side braids. They give this hairstyle a very feminine appeal while making it look super trendy.


Anushka Sharma

Taapsee Pannu

Buns and tousled hair texture is a match made in heaven, and look how lovely Anushka looks sporting this classic combination. If you are bored of leaving your hair open and want to try something different, this is the one for you! An added plus? This hairstyle provides the perfect platform to help you flaunt those pretty earrings.


Deepika Padukone

Taapsee Pannu

Is there any hairstyle that this leggy lass can’t carry? While the tousled ponytail is a sure winner with us, what stole our hearts was the way Deepika used beautiful green scarf to tie it all up. Adding a hair accessory is such a refreshing way to upgrade the low ponytail into a super fun, glamorous hairstyle.


Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee Pannu

If you think tousled hairdos are not for curly haired girls, let Taapsee show you just how wrong you are! The faux front fringe looks amazing on girls with tight curls and makes for a superb brunch-appropriate hairstyle. Swipe on some poppy lipstick and you’re good to go!
