She hashtagged her recent Instagram post with #messyhairdontcare, and we couldn’t agree more with Sonakshi Sinha flaunting her fun beach-perfect waves. New Delhi might be in the throes of winter right now, but there’s nothing that can stop a girl from dreaming of Goan holidays and messy tresses to add fun.

Wavy locks go beyond the bed head look. Just like barely-there makeup, which actually comprises a tricky bit of base-work, hair that looks effortlessly yet stylishly shook-up, also includes work and product aid. Acing beach-fresh waves: Your flat iron can go a long way in creating a case for fashionably tousled hair. Divide the length of your locks into sections and wrap each section around the hot wand till you have loose waves lining your hair.

There’s a teasing, backcombing and hair spray that also goes into perfecting the look, so keep your vanity case prepared. The beauty companion: Your wavy hair needs to be the perfect accomplice to your makeup. A jewel-hued lip and eyes with a nude waterline can look gorgeous with long, loose locks. If you are going for a messy lob (long bob), a dewy lip and peachy, fresh makeup like Sona can look terrific!

Here’s some inspiration for you if you are hopping on to the wavy bandwagon:

On the runway too, the messy-hair-don’t-care vibe has been rampant. Here are beauty looks from Dior and Azzaro that embrace the trend.

Vlogger Beauty by Sara starts with poker straight hair to create her fashionable mess. After using a wand to flatten her bob, she uses a curling wand to lightly induce a wave at the ends. She uses her fingers to open up the tight curls and hair spray to seal the look.

For those of you with ample length, this is the tute to follow. Vlogger Teni Panosian uses a curling tong to create waves and works on the hair with a volumizing mousse, starting from the roots. She completes the look by flattening the ends with an iron and finishes with a spray.
