The Hair Trend We Didn't See Coming

The Hair Trend We Didn't See Coming(Source: ImaxTree)Some trends we see and we immediately get why they become the new "it" hairstyle. Braids: stylish and simple, we get it. Slicked-back strands: harder to pull off, but we get it. But we have to admit, this latest look from the runways caught us off guard. Believe it or not, flyaways—yes, purposefully unkept hair—had quite the spotlight on the Spring 2015 runways. 

When paired with a ponytail or messy bun, the free-flying look lends itself well to the on-trend athletic vibe, not to mention it's ridiculously simple to accomplish. There's always the option to go to bed and hope your hair comes out looking somewhat presentable. But if that's not an option, another way to fake the "I woke up like this" look is to texturize your hair with a dry shampoo (focusing on the roots and creating volume is key) and pull it back into a simple ponytail. Finish by selectively pulling out pieces of hair around your temples and crown and letting them fly free. Give one final spritz of your favorite finishing spray, or dry shampoo if you still feel like you need more texture. See below for some high-fashion inspiration.
