Being “imperfect” is the new “perfect” and messy hairstyles are making a comeback.

With celebrities donning the “unkempt” look these days, more and more people are trying the “deliberate bed hair” style.

Personally, we adore messy hairstyles and believe they’re perfect for every occasion. Whether it’s for work, or for an event, there’s always a messy hairdo to the rescue!

With that in mind, here’s a list of our favorite messy hairstyles. Let us know which one you like best!

Messy Crown Braid

While there are plenty of messy braid looks, our favorite one is the crown one. It’s very simple and you don’t have to be neat with it. It’s also perfect for when you’re running late to work and don’t have time to style your hair.

Start by gathering your hair to one side. Then braid your hair (it should be the classical braid) and pull it over to the crown of your head. Pin it to the other side using bobby pins (so it looks like a crown) and voila, you’re done!

Frizzy and Messy Top Knot Bun Messy Hairstyles2

Spice up your outfit by going with a messy top knot bun! It’s perfect for an evening out with the girls, or for date night.

All you have to do is gather your hair into a high ponytail, twist it until it forms a bun, and then tie it using an elastic hair band. You can pull and tug at it until you get the results you want.

Make sure you don’t use a comb. You can add a hair accessory like a hair band or a bandana. You can experiment with the look and see what works for you.

Messy Low Ponytail

Ponytails don’t have to be boring, especially if they’re low ponytails!

Next time you’re running late for a meeting, you can tie your hair into a low ponytail. This look is perfect for any occasion and complements every outfit.

Gather your hair back, and then take a strand of your hair, and tie the ponytail with it. You can also use an elastic band or a scrunchie. It’s up to you.

Personally, we prefer trying it with our strand of hair. You can add a barrette too!

Messy Fishtail Braid

Fishtail braids are our favorite! This look is also pretty easy to do. Instead of detangling your hair, just braid it.

The messier the look, the better. If you have bangs, they will complement the look. You can add small artificial flowers to the twists of the braid, or go with a simple metal hair band. There are plenty of ways to spice up with a regular fishtail braid!
