Grunge hair, do you dare?
The key to nailing grunge hair is it needs to look perfectly dishevelled, untamed yet still intentionally styled. Its bed head, but not quite the 'straight-out-of-a-deep-sleep'. Tricky, but possible!
What exactly is grunge?
For those who didn't see it the first time around, 'grunge' is a lifestyle. Inspired by the punk music movement and its angst-ridden lyrics, grunge is an attitude and a way of life. Its core tenants include minimal focus on appearance, comfort dressing and a rejection of consumerism. In fact, it's almost an anti-trend. Celebrity stylist and L'Oreal ambassador, Anh Co Tran, thinks that grungy hair is definitely a look to keep on your style radar whether we're a daring fashionista, or just channelling an untamed vibe.
Look the part
Looking stylishly dishevelled isn't that easy. It's one thing to carry off the attitude and quite another to look like you need a shower! For wavy West Coast tresses call on L'Oréal Professionnel's Tecni.Art Beach Waves and add the wet look finish with Wet Domination Shower Shine. This lightweight styling shine spray gives texture and reflects the light – think, new generation grunge for those who like it sleek, not bleak.
Remember grunge is an attitude so embrace individuality. Find your tribe and shy away from mass market and consumerism. Most of all, dress comfy. Steer clear of all things polished and pretty. Dark, almost gothic make-up is a good finishing touch. Or, why not go for a look that screams 'yesterday's makeup'. Kurt Cobain and co would approve!
