There are those days when elaborate hairstyles are not in your plans. Sometimes, the dress code calls for casual attire. In such cases, the undone look may be the best solution. The style appeals with relaxed, casual chic for every occasion. Our instructions help you style the undone look, and our photos of bloggers are meant to inspire your choices of undone hairdos.

Undone hairstyles offer perfect choices when an elaborate updo seems to be too much trouble while a ponytail is just a bit too ordinary. This trendy style is as suitable for spending some time at the mall with friends as it is for a formal dinner party.
‘Undone’ does not actually mean getting out of bed and forgetting shampoo, brushes and comb. As far as hairstyles are concerned, ‘undone’ means casually cool. Conveniently, undone hairstyles go well with all kinds of outfits. Small wonder, bloggers embrace the undone style!
How to Style the Undone Look
The undone look intrigues with volume and structure. The styling requires volumising shampoo (to start creating maximum volume), styling mousse to massage through your hair after the shampoo, volumising powder or dry shampoo (to apply to the root portion of the hair), anti-frizz lotion to create still more pliable volume, and hairspray (to apply while hanging your head upside down).

Caption Blogger Ivana loves to re-invent her style often. Today, she presents herself lady-like, tomorrow she surprises with a casual style. By contrast, she sticks to the undone look for her hair.
Blogger Ivana Julián ("Fashion Quite") lives in Spain. She is known for her captivating fashion choices in many different styles and her undone hairstyles, which neatly suit all these wardrobe styles.
Styling Tips: Like Ivana, you should keep your hair well-tended and shiny. However, the hairline may be tousled and the not so straight side parting is best created using your fingers rather than a comb.
