I wish I had...


messy hair...the really cool kind that looks perfect. Perfect being you rolled out of bed but somehow don't look sloppy. Just carefree...

I sometimes think that too but I live on the Upper East Side and it doesn't go over as well there as it does in Paris! Lol!

P.S. I will also be at the Elle Decor launch party tomorrow night! If you see me, definitely say hello!

Of course you like Kate Moss! These pictures are fabulous. If only I looked like this when I roll out of bed (that'll be the day...)! Thanks for your comment, I so appreciate it. I'm adding you to my kindred spirits. Plaisirs Simples is my new motto/outlook/goal/etc.

Just stumbled on your blog today- it was love at first sight when I saw this post on messy hair! I adore it!

I've found that the best way to make it happen is getting long, razored layers and highlights to add texture. Then I usually attack it randomly with a large barreled curling iron to play up waviness, and a flat iron to make the ends look more...pointy. Oh, and a fair amount of teasing and hairspray at the roots for bedhead like lift.

Reading over this is making me laugh- It's a little less than carefree, but it gets the job done!

It all depends on the texture of your hair - but try the beach head stuff (John Frieda) and scrunch it all up and air dry. Mine gets a bit massive so I have to apply extra product to weigh it down. Love the photos!
