3. Use the curling wand to curl always away from your face.
The trick to the messy curls is not just curling them, but also how long you let them sit before messing them up. So start around your face and work your way back to the crown. Always curl away from your face and possibly mix it up on the side or back once or twice to make the messiness more believable. I love my curling wand, it is the 25mm curling wand by Aria Beauty. Leave the bottom inch out of the curling wand, again it adds to the messy effect. Let the curls sit tight for a second.
4. Add some hair spray to each curl while they are still tight
For this messy undone look, building on the texture makes all the difference. So while the curls are tight, grab each one at the bottom and spray a little hair spray on them from the bottom up. I love this Kevin Murphy hair spray, it is not sticky or heavy it just does what it needs to, make it look like you just woke up like this.
