Wearing your Hair Undone: Effortlessly Chic

There are those days when elaborate hairstyles are just not going to happen. Sometimes, the dress code calls for casual attire. In such cases, the undone look may be the best solution. The style has an appeal with relaxed, casual chic for every occasion. Our instructions help you style the undone look, and our photos of bloggers are meant to inspire your choices of undone hairdos.

Undone hairstyles offer perfect the perfect choice when an elaborate updo seems to be too much trouble, while a ponytail hairstyle is just a bit too ordinary. This trendy style is as suitable for spending some time at the mall with friends as it is for a formal dinner party.

‘Undone’ does not actually mean getting out of bed and forgetting about shampoo, brushes and combs. As far as hairstyles are concerned, ‘undone’ means casually cool. Conveniently, undone hairstyles go well with all kinds of outfits. It's no wonder, bloggers embrace the undone style!

How to Style the Undone Look

The undone look can be made with volume and structure. The styling requires firstly learning how to wash your hair with volumizing shampoo (to start creating maximum volume). Following this, massage hair mousse through your hair, before applying a volumizing powder or dry shampoo to the root portion of the hair. Anti-frizz lotion and hairspray (applied while hanging your head upside down) help crontrol and set your look.

The Undone Hairstyle: Ivana Julián


Caption Blogger Ivana loves to re-invent her style. Today, she presents herself lady-like, tomorrow she surprises with a casual style. By contrast, she sticks to the undone look for her hair.

Blogger Ivana Julián ("Fashion Quite") lives in Spain. She is known for her captivating fashion choices in many different styles and her undone hairstyles, which neatly suit all these wardrobe styles.

Styling Tips: Like Ivana, you should keep your hair well-tended and shiny. However, the hairline may be tousled and the side hair part is best created using your fingers rather than a comb.
