Bed Head

What hairstyle is bed head?

Unkempt hair

Bed head is when your hair looks so disheveled that it looks like you just rolled out of bed. Examples of bed head include frizzy hair, flattened hair on the back of your head, and hair pointing in all sorts of directions.

While most people have bed head after sleeping (overnight or just a quick power nap), they might achieve bed head during other activities. Instances include skydiving, driving in a convertible, or wearing a helmet on your motorcycle.

Some people find bed head to be an attractive look, so they dishevel their hair on purpose. Others like to make it seem like they don't care about their appearance.
