Messy hairstyles for men are often considered inappropriate or just plain lazy for formal occasions, but we think that if you pull it off right, there's no reason you can't wear a disheveled look anywhere. It's not the style itself, but what you do with it!
As a basic rule, you can wear a messy hairstyle everywhere from your favorite dive bar to the Oscars as long as it involves a certain amount of control... and wearing a suit won't hurt either.
The trick is to allow your natural texture plenty of room to move while sculpting it into some kind of style. After all, a messy bed head - the kind that you really do wake up with - won't pass muster for a job interview.
How to style it
To achieve a style that looks like you make some kind of effort without overdoing it, you'll need a flexible hold product to keep your hair in shape.
Starting with slightly damp hair, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum evenly throughout. Really work it through your hair, adding more as needed.
Twist, tousle and muss your hair for added texture. To amp up the volume, massage the roots on top of your head and/or give your hair a quck blast with a blow-dryer while lifting it with a comb.
Shape your hair with your hands. Smooth down the sides, then ruffle and sweep the hair on top slightly to one side. That's it!
