Give your hair a disheveled and effortless touch through amazing summer 2011 hairstyle trends that scream seduction and sexiness all the way. You don't need professional tools and products, nor complicated tips and tricks in order to get this look. And despite the idea that relaxed and 'undone' locks are not alluring, you should know that messy, natural hair and waves can be a great choice for a casual, daytime look, for a night out with your friends, or on the contrary, for a formal event that requires something rather special. Therefore, try this attention-grabbing style and remember to avoid perfection!

The idea is to go for a laid-back approach and an imperfect, slightly messy finish. Despite its apparent undone look, a messy hairstyle should be attentively made. Well, don't worry as it would only take an instant. What you need is a curling iron and a salt spray. For a tousled result, take some hair section randomly and using the wand make loose curls. Then, flip your head upside down, mess up the curls and as a final step apply some spray. So nonchalant and chic!

With the side braid reigning the catwalks during the last few seasons, there's no wonder it makes a quite impressive comeback for spring/summer 2011 among the hottest hairstyle trends. Messy yet classy, the side braid looks healthy and fresh (Valentino). If you have glossy, long locks, you can also opt for a special half updo (Alberta Ferretti). You can glam up your look following just a few easy steps. First, you should obtain beautiful, straight-from-bed waves using a curling wand. Next, get the disheveled effect by running your fingers through the wavy hair, then make the parting, take a section of hair at each temple and secure them at the back of your head.

Everyone agrees that short hairstyles are utterly sexy and chic. Besides, it has an incredible versatility. Therefore, whether you want a sweet and delicate result or something more dramatic and edgy, a short cut will allow you to play with different styles. Moreover, if you keep the lengths slightly longer in the front, you'll be able to wear your hair punked-up (Paul Smith).
