Oh, Alexa Chung, your enviable bedhead waves are exactly the trend we're dying to get right for Winter. But rolling out of bed with hair that's just messy enough and walking out the door without spending an hour at the mirror is just a beauty myth, right? Wrong.
"There are actually a few ways to achieve this look," says celebrity stylist Sally Hershberger. The easiest way is to braid your hair before bed, but make sure to prep your hair the right way. Hershberger advises to spritz down hair that's almost completely dry with a texture spray, like her Wave Spray (for a similar look try: Joico Structure Beach Spray, $19.95).
Work the product into your hair by scrunching and using your fingers to comb through sections. Braid the hair in different-sized braids to achieve a piecey look, and then sleep on it. In the morning, simply take out the braids, adding more wave spray as needed. If you want to add some more texture, then use a curling iron, but only wrap the hair around the barrel once or twice, leaving the ends free. Mess with your fingers, swipe on some black eyeliner, and you'll give Alexa a run for her money.
