Keira Knightely, Kerry Washington and Kelly Rowland have another thing in common besides the fact that all of their names begin with the letter "K." These three gorgeous stars have mastered bedhead hair. And I'm not talking about that hop out of the bed and shake it out look we all seem to rely on when we've hit the snooze button way too many times. I'm referring to that roughed-up (in a good way) hair.
For her most recent turn as Marie Claire cover girl, Knightley sported bedhead hair with a rock and roll edge. Meanwhile, Washington has been making the red carpet rounds for "Django Unchained" wearing her shoulder-length haircut perfectly tousled. While former Destiny's Child member Roland balances out her new blunt bangs with loose waves.
Ben Skervin, the man behind Knightley's Marie Claire bedhead hairstyle, shares his step-by-step instructions on how to get the look. Prep wet hair with a light foaming air mousse to build volume. Then rough blow-dry using your fingers to make the hair appear less finished. Next, create a side part (or you can comb your bangs forward like Washington and Rowland), add a rich moisturizing hair product like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Color Gloss Creme and scrunch into the ends of the hair. This helps to create those soft, yet tousled waves, but if you need a curl boost, wrap one-inch sections of hair around a clipless curling iron. To finish, set the style with extra firm hold hairspray.
