Bed hair: sexy, tousled, easily yours.

Sexy, sensual, and most of all suggestive. Bed hair is one type of hairstyle that not only looks good but implies whatever you want it to imply, be it lazy sunday morning carelessness or pure, unadulterated sex appeal.

But while looking like you just rolled out of bed can sometimes be achieved by doing just that, it’s not always so forthcoming. You want to look like Brigitte Bardot, not like you simply belong in your pyjamas.

After the break we round up some tutorials and how-to guides for creating bed hair hairstyles in their various forms: the simple and free-flowing, the teased and tousled, the post-party, the rock-star, the vintage babe. It all comes down to the right products, and the right attitude, when it comes to adding bed hair to your repertoire of hairstyles for 2013.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
