We can think of a zillion hairstyles that come under the heading “sexy hair” (a swingy bob, a glossy blowout, a luscious ‘fro…), but as Sanaa Lathan and Gabrielle Union prove, nothing’s sexier right now than full, artfully disheveled bedhead. Both actresses were recently seen wearing virtually identical, messy-on-purpose ‘dos — and they’ve never looked hotter.

To get the look, set your hair with huge hot rollers, let cool, and then randomly back-comb at the crown and finger-style. The more mussed your mane looks, the better. We love any style that doesn’t demand perfection.
