How to create artfully disheveled hair. 

One major takeaway from the Rag & Bone NYFW SS17 Men’s and Women’s show: Individuality should always be embraced. Whether it be your cool personality or your the texture of your hair — own it! Amongst the many men’s hairstyles that went down the runway, the styles that consisted of an intentional and spiffy disheveled texture happened to be one of our favorites. The key to getting this look is to make it artfully tousled and slightly messy. Ahead is your three-step guide to creating this cool disheveled texture to your hair.

Step 1: Create texture with salt spray.

To begin, part hair in the direction you want your hairstyle to fall. Dampen hair with a salt spray to enhance the disheveled texture of the hair. Work the product through using a scrunching motion with your hands to create the look.

Step 2: Blow-dry your hair.

Air-dry or use a blowdryer to dry your hair. Be sure to add some heat protectant, like the TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray before you start. Then, use your hands to rake through your hair as you work the blowdryer through. As you glide your hands through your hair, try to do it in a rough, forward and backward motion to create a  more lived-in texture.

Step 3: Use a flat iron to define texture or hair waves.

(optional) This step would be best for guys with medium-to-long and wavy hair. Wrap the hair 1-inch sections of hair around a flat iron to define the wavy texture. Finger comb through your hair to create the disheveled texture and done!
