    How long is your hair and do you have straight or curly hair: thick, mid or fine?

    My hair is very similar to yours. What I do is, after I've washed my hair, I tie it up in a bun and just let it dry like that. And when I undo the bun, it creates a 'messy' style. It's not very 'professional' but that's how I do it...

    To get a messy look, your hair needs movement and texture . This is where products come in.

    You need something like tigi rubber rage(it's about maybe $20)which is a hair wax. Styling your hair by using a diffuser can help, it reduces staticness and gives it volume.

    Once hair is dry you should then apply a touch of a product like rubber rage through your hair. Run it through your hair with your fingers, focusing more on the ends to ensure it doesn't look too heavy on the roots(too much can make your hair appear greasy). Whilst running the product through your hair scrunch and ruffle your hair with your fingers.

    This should give a messy kind of look but will keep it stylish too

    If it works, great!!!

    If the problem is because your hair is fine then i can help you out..

    Paul Mitchell make a spray in root lift product that you can squirt onto your scalp at random,
    then scrunch your hair up and just messily blowdry it.
    Very quick to do (1-2 minutes) and immediately makes it look nicely scruffy.

    If youre after something to keep your hair in place all day once it's put up,
    then Lee Stafford's "as ruff as you like" applied sparingly works like a charm.
