Really useful type: structured, chaotic look
If you're looking for a style that takes little to no effort to look good, look no further because that's it. the structured messy look.
Unfortunately, not all things are that simple, and while it's not too difficult to style at home, a good structured, messy look depends heavily on a solid cut by your hairdresser. When approaching the cut, the hairdresser has to take many factors into account – hair type, head shape, hair length, growth pattern … the list goes on.
Check out this example of a well-executed textured messy look by Uppercut Deluxe founder Steve Purcell.
For this style, the hairdresser raised the crossfade with a fixed separation. With a length of 4 inches at the top, there is still plenty of hair to work with and style with Uppercut Deluxe Styling Powder .
Uppercut Deluxe Styling Powder is a revolutionary men's hair product that makes optimal use of cosmetic technology. Unlike other powders on the market, our styling powder is is an ultra-fine dust that sits weightlessly on the hair and gives hold, volume and texture – which makes it the perfect product for this style.
HOW TO STYLE A TEXTURED MESSY LOOK
Achieving this look really depends on your hair type.
First things first, before styling, we always recommend a full wash cycle with Uppercut Deluxe Everyday Shampoo and Conditioner. Freshly washed hair responds much better to styling products, not to mention that it is much easier to work with.
After washing, give your hair an extremely thorough towel dry. Styling powder works best with bone dry hair – the extra time you spend drying your hair makes styling a lot easier. If you are on time, put your hair dryer on medium heat and hit your hair with it. Keep the dryer moving so you don't damage your hair. Straighten your hair before laying it down for more volume.
Once your hair is dry, take your styling powder and gently dust it all over your head.
Next, run your hands through your hair and curl. Next, pluck and pinch your hair pieces to highlight your hair.
With a good cut, it's really that easy. Shake and rake.
