We feel that real, ingrained-in-your-bones hairstyle is best seen during those in-between days. You know: those times you’re too busy with the stuff of life—errands, spin class, avocado shopping, en route to the airport, your sister’s last-minute promotion party—are when you immediately go on fashion autopilot and bring out your fail-safes. For us, messy ponytail hairdos are our black leggings and LBDs of beauty: The last word in casual chic, they always deliver, and for something quite simple, are surprisingly never boring. To help you to create a messy ‘do that’s all your own, we are sharing two ways to rock the messy look, including mussed up-inspired hairstyles that were inspired from the Rag & Bone and Jonathan Simkhai shows in NYC. Read on to learn more about how to master this classic hairstyle for this ultimate in effortless beauty.

Look 2: Steps for Creating a Messy Ponytail from NYFW
Step 1: Start clean or refresh with dry shampoo.
To begin your look, refresh your hair with TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo to soak up any excess oil. While this particular style is best on second-day or lived-in hair, you can absolutely create the look on freshly washed hair. Wash hair with TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Shampoo and condition with TRESemmé (un)Done Conditioner, then proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Rough-dry with blowdryer.
The rough-dry technique helps build texture in your hair while you blow-dry. To do this step, simply prep hair with TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray, then use your hands to roughly comb through your hair as you dry. Pro tip: Use a medium to low temperature setting to avoid burning your hands.
Step 3: Create ponytail.
Gather hair into a ponytail as you think of it as an undone look. Secure with a hair tie.
Step 4: Enhance hair texture by backcombing.
Using a fine-tooth comb, backcomb the ends of your hair to enhance texture and create body. Finish your look with a hairspray that gives your ponytail hold and lots of movement like Dove Style + Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray.
