Gone are the days of using a brush to brush our hair. Now that out of bed look is really in. If your hair is long or short straight or curly, messy hair is the new look.
Twenty years ago what looked like a continental bugger up is now considered an art and what we thought way back when, was considered to be a bad hair day has turned into absolutely awesome and cool.
So what do we have to do to get that new look. My suggestion would be to go to a really good hairstylist who has great skills in cutting, thinning etc. yes there is definitely an art to this. Use the right styling aids as well to achieve your new style. This can help you to achieve hair going from one direction to the next without it looking like it was super glued.
The gels used to be very hard and stiff where the hair was kept in the same shape the whole day without even moving but now the new textured putty will help you to control or uncontrol your hair in the way you desire.
It will give you a chunky separation with a mat finish also with maximum control. There are so many different products on the market and so difficult to choose from so maybe ask your stylist to recommend a product or whilst she or he is doing your hair see what is used in terms of getting your desired effect that you are happy with.
Actually if you have really good hair and its been cut very well you might not even need a product to style it, all you will need is a brilliant cut and a careless attitude.
I personally find that the best way to get a very messy look is to thin the hair out a lot with the thinning scissors but this I would only recommend on thick hair, you can also do this on very thin but not a lot.
