Just woke up like this? The spring/summer 2024 runways definitely did. Spotted at the likes of Tom Ford, Giada and Miu Miu, the bed hair is making a comeback as this season’s it-hairstyle. The natural and tousled, almost insouciant look is a toast to the lazy girl and a step away from the sleek and immaculate up-dos the runways are used to.
If clean-girl beauty had a rebellious twin, bed hair would be it. The perfectly imperfect hair look is a carefree counterbalance to clean, frizz-free locks as hairstylists placed emphasis on texture to create styles that were pared-back yet gave a dramatic perspective. Bed hair chic makes for a great case of second (or third) day hair, ultimately becoming a double-edged hair sword for a perfectly tousled style that comes with minimal effort.
The lived-in look does not discriminate, working with ease across all hair types. Some styling sprays for added volume and a brush are essentially all one needs to pull off bed hair, regardless if your tresses are pin straight or frizzy. If you’re considering a fresh cut, adding layers make way for more natural movement and texture. Natural colours work best as styling and texture give strong depth and dimension against darker tones.
Be it rolled-out bed hair or a post-shower slick back, Vogue Singapore has got you covered with a selection of the best styling tools to nail the lived-in look. Peruse our best picks below.
