The Biggest Hair Trend of 2014 Has Arrived
Award season’s just started and already there’s one big hair trend that’s leading the pack: the bedhead up-do. Think of it as the enviable texture of our favorite French girl style, made appropriate for the red carpet. Everyone’s trying it out: Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Mara, and Amber Heard all wore versions to the Golden Globes. Will this be the “It-style” of the season? Stay tuned for our Grammy and Academy Award coverage to find out! In the meantime, take a look at how Julia Roberts, Allison Williams, and more have interpreted the trend, above.
The Girls actress wore her locks in a messy chignon at the W magazine pre-Golden Globes party in Los Angeles. To get the look, blast your day-two hair with a texture spray that also soaks up oil—like Sachajuan’s Volume Powder ($32)—and don’t even think about using a brush!
Blanchett can do no wrong on the red carpet, and this messy—but shiny—twist is no exception. Since many texture sprays add a matte finish, use a root powder and shine-inducing hairspray for texture and lift instead. We like Sexy Hair’s Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing and Texturizing Powder ($17) and Dove’s Strength and Shine Extra Hold Hairspray ($5).
