Jazzin’ Up Bedhead Hair: 3 ‘Naturalista’ Styles You’ll Love

With school in session, boy troubles, a heavy workload, and careers on the mind, it can be rather challenging to keep up with the latest hair trends.

No worries! This fall is full of fun, flirty, easy-to-do hairstyles for any "on-the-run, got-things-to-do" kinda girl. Natural is in and there's nothing that flows with this season better than a jazzed-up bed head!

Take your cue from Grammy Award winning soul-sista, Alicia Keys. Miss Thang is changing up the scene with a new album and a new look, recently chopping off her long locks for a simpler, sassier 'do. One of my faves, this look can easily be achieved in no time! After a nice deep-conditioning shampoo to comfort your tresses, spray some leave-in conditioner, and finish it off with a dab of Paul  Mitchell's Curls Full Circle Leave-In Treatment. This product is great for keeping the curls intact and your tresses frizz-free, without weighing them down. No heat is part of the inspiration here, so let the air on your way out the door be a finishing touch for this look.

When it comes to keeping it au natural, no one represents better than musical genius and actress, Jill Scott. Whether she's on set for a new movie, or music video, Jill is always letting her relaxed-free hair run wild! One of her hottest looks this season was the two-strand-twist, an overnight experiment that has girls everywhere waking up with a new found glory. This style is simple, long-lasting, and very easy to maintain. Clean hair is sectioned in fours, and two strands at a time are twisted together using coconut, olive oil, or curling creme. The ends can be sealed with pomade for a lasting hold. Hair is then wrapped overnight with a satin scarf (no better way to lock in that moisture). In the morning, the choice is yours. While I adore setting my twists free, you can leave 'em in, rock it in a pony, pin it up - whatever your desired look may be. The best thing about this style: it lasts for days and only requires a pomade touch-up on the edges to keep it fresh and fab! Sign me up!!

halle berry bun

Toss it in a bun! If you’re like me, you’re not too picky on this one. It’s my no time-no biggie ‘do! One of the most versatile of all time, the bun is the quintessential quick and easy style. You can rock it high and sleek, off to the side, or in a messy fashion and you’ll still look amazing. I’m a big fan of the side bun. It’s casual but you can always dress it up. If you like a smooth finish, a dab of hair gel or molding cream will do the trick. Don’t let that be your only bun though! Take it from Halle Berry’s messy bun; there is something sexy about a woman with care-free hair! It’s a sure shout out to the world that even with a busy schedule, you can still keep it foxy!

Are you ready? I think so! Go get ‘em, and make sure you have fun in the process! New season, new beginnings - new you!
