We don't know about you, but we hardly have time to throw on mascara and gloss in the morning, let alone construct an elaborately perfect hairdo. But we have good news, on-the-go girls. One of this season's hottest trends is messy chic hair! We're not talking grungy-messy (dirty, unkempt hair is obviously gross) -- its more about a tousled, delicately mussed, bedhead imperfection. If you're rocking an updo, let a few face-framing tendrils escape. If you're sporting long waves, run a styling wax between your fingers and rough it up a bit. The goal is to look like you just had a brilliant, um, tumble in the hay! From Thandie Newton's wind-whipped waves to Selita Ebanks teased upsweep, here are the hottest messy chic styls.
