Now, if you’re new to the world of men’s styling, and don’t usually bother with your hair, fret not. You too can rock this dishevelled look with style, by following our quick and easy 5-step tutorial, below.


Wash your hair.

This look calls for freshly-washed hair, so start by using the Toni&Guy Men’s Anti Dandruff 2 in 1 Shampoo to cleanse your strands and soothe your scalp.

Dry your hair.

Next, blast your hair dry with a hairdryer, using your fingers to create carefree movement as you dry.

Apply texturising fibre.

Once your hair is dry, take some of the Toni&Guy Men’s Texturising Fibre and warm it between your palms until it becomes workable.

This product is perfect for this look, as while it has a medium hold to keep your style in place, it also has a natural-looking, matte finish, so your hair won’t look too ‘done’.

Work this through your strands until it’s evenly distributed.

Style your hair for soft movement.

Use your fingers to mold and shape your hair to create soft, casual movement, or until you’ve achieved your desired look.
