We all know that girl, you know, the one who apparently just falls out of bed with street style worthy hair. The on point center part, perfectly executed subtle kinks in all the right places and not a hint of frizz to be seen. News flash!! She didn’t, “Just wake up like that,” nor does her hair, “Naturally dry like that!” In the same way that the fresh faced sans make-up beauty look actually requires make-up, undone tresses actually require styling, products and just a little bit of work, but we promise it’s totally worth it!

There’s a very fine line between capturing a subtly carefree look that demands instant street cred and looking completely disheveled, like perhaps you never actually went to be at all! We’ve compiled our top three tips to help you navigate around the undone trend and ensure you hit the mark every time!

1. Au naturel doesn’t necessarily mean all natural!

Extensions don’t only add length (you want somewhere between shoulder and rib length to master this trend) and volume (a necessity for pulling off this look), they also help to weigh down and tame your natural hair making it easier to achieve the perfect undone look.

2. Get a great haircut

Minimize the need for constant styling and upkeep by committing to a great haircut every 6-8 weeks. Trimming your ends and ensuring your layers suit your natural hair type will make all the difference in the mornings, when you’re racing out the door, late again!!

3. Practice subtle styling and don’t be in a rush to brush!

Preparation is key to pulling off this look, before blow-drying, apply a small amount of Moroccan Oil Hydrating Styling Cream and Frizz Control. These will help to fight frizz, add definition and provide a soft hold. Blow-dry your locks using a diffuser attachment to create natural movement and groom into place using a straightening styler adding soft waves where necessary, (start from the middle and frame the face). Once you’re ready, resist the urge to brush throughout the day- let your hair take its natural course!
