The Short Messy Cut
A carefree organised mess.
This short and messy hairstyle is really versatile. It works with all kinds of hairstyles: you can rock this laid back look with either straight or curly hair. This messy haircut only needs Lynx Styling Urban Matt Gel and a bit of personality for it to work to its full potential.
No need to be super precise or make sure every hair is in the right place. The messy haircut is all about a wild and carefree attitude with just a hint of effort. If you want to go for the full rugged look, team your messy haircut with stubble or a full on beard.
How it Began
Short messy hair is a staple look of youth subcultures: from the beat poets of NYC to Southern Californian surfers and skaters. There's just something about being young and free that calls for a short and messy do.
A low maintenance cut with plenty of attitude. Rocking this is easy: keep it short. Wear it messy. Walk out the door.
