If you are suffering a bad-hair day, don’t fret, for you have your finger on the pulse of fashion. The unkempt, just-rolled-out-of bed look is the hot hair trend that fashion forward Bollywood beauties are sporting.

While actors Chitrangda Singh, Kalki Koechlin and Huma Qureshi are giving the well-combed, neat look a miss for the bedhead style, it has been a favourite with Hollywood actor Kristen Stewart for long. “Messy hair has a very young, relaxed and effortless vibe to it, though it requires considerable styling. It is a refreshing change from the ultra glam, prim and proper hairstyles. I think Deepika Padukone and Chitrangda Singh can easily be called the poster girls for this fun style,” says hairstylist Anu Kaushik.
Meanwhile, young girls in the city, too, are game for this messy style and are thronging salons to get the look. “Girls who come to get their hair styled these days want messy and relaxed styles. The perfect, clean updos are almost passé now, especially for quirk-loving youngsters,” says hair and makeup expert, Ambika Pillai. But the seemingly low maintenance hairstyle also requires a bit of effort, points out hairstylist Richa Agarwal. “You need to back comb and scrunch your hair to get the look right.”
