It seems all the rage for male celebrities to style their hair in a tousled way, that looks like they just rolled out of bed. Brad Pitt, Jude Law, and Ewan McGregor have all sported the look, and now you can too. All you need is the proper styling product and you will be well on your way to having perfectly messy dry gel hair.
Take a shower, washing and conditioning your hair as usual.
Towel dry your hair, but do not brush or comb it.
Apply a quarter-sized to a half dollar-sized dollop of styling gel to your palm and rub it between your hands.
Run your fingers through the hair on the top of your head, from the crown of your head to your forehead, working the styling gel into your hair.
Fluff your hair with your fingertips, mussing and teasing it, until you get the look you desire. When attempting the messy look, less is more, so do not over-style your hair.
Allow your hair to dry naturally.
