8 Effortlessy Chic, Messy Hairstyles

Everyone knows that one girl on campus or in the work place who will wear a simple tee, ripped jeans, a pair of hi-tops and dishevelled hair and appear as if she spent 10 minutes getting ready, yet, somehow, she still manages to look like she just walked off the runway at fashion week. How the hell is that even possible?!
