It starts with the haircut
To get the most from your bed head hairstyle, it’s important you get the right kind of haircut. This style is amazing for guys that want a relaxed easy to style haircut and it requires very little maintenance.
You’ll want to keep the hair short and neat on the back and sides, probably around an inch in length, getting shorter towards the bottom with a slight taper.
Around the ears and hairline should be left very natural, because you don’t want it to look manufactured. Remember bed head is supposed to look like you’ve just got straight out of bed. Whilst you want to keep it neat and sharp around the edges, you want the top loose.
The top is a messy bed head style with the hair worn off the face and up at the front. You want to keep plenty of length in the fringe, so that you have enough to play with. Gradually get shorter as you get towards the back of your head.
Get your barber to add lots of texture, because you want the hair broken up on the ends. Your barber might use techniques like point cutting, thinning scissors or a texture razor to do this. More importantly, lots of texture will help the hair to move in all different directions, and make it easier for you to just run your fingers through the hair throughout the day.
