If you want to add a bit of volume and texture to your hair, you usually make waves. This involves the use of a curling iron or blow dryer. What if we let you in on a little secret? Tousled hair gives you waves as well without the use of heat. You think it’s impossible? This tutorial article will show you how it’s done.

5 Easy steps to have chic tousled hair


Wash hair

Use Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Shampoo and Dove Oxygen & Nourishment Conditioner to add up to 95 percent volume to your flat hair while keeping your locks soft and nourished. This way, your hair won’t look limp and lifeless. Leave your hair half damp. 


How to create tousled hair step 1: Wash hair

Start twisting

Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray onto your hair so you will have beautiful waves later on. Then, take a small section of hair, twist it into a small bun, and pin in place. Do this until all sections of your hair are twisted and pinned.

Aside from bobby pins, you can also use old socks to create curls and waves. Just wrap and roll sections of your damp hair around your old socks. After a couple of hours, unroll your socks to release your hair and voila! Hello, beautiful wavy hair!

2. Textured wavy hair

When your hair doesn’t want to cooperate and seems to have a life of its own, don’t panic. You can still create a chic and tousled hairstyle out of it. Just spritz dry shampoo on your roots for a bit of texture and volume, then run your fingers through your hair. Scrunch or shake your hair to style it and create a messy-chic ‘do. You can also do this hair hack when you skipped a wash or two. 

3. Textured hair with deep side part
