It takes special people to pull it off. Not everyone who does it are genuine about it and so they just look a bit try-hard and lame.
I did the backcombed thing and people really liked it because I'm neat about it and there's a style there, but when others do it, it looked really bird nest-like, random and just wrong
I only go 'messy' when i have my hair curling because it's like "i can't control it, it's bad anyway so may as well embrace that", normally i have brushed straight hair.
But no it only really looks good at a festival or after party
Half of the top 10 aren't even RG...
