How to do a Messy Hairstyle?
Messy hairstyles are very different form of hairstyle. It doesn’t mean that we are talking about a bad hairdo. That is a wrong idea about messy hairstyles. These are proper hairstyles which are given a loose and curly or sometimes a flirty and messy touch to them. This makes the hairstyles look more relaxed than their properly tamed versions. This is the reason these are referred to as messy hairstyles. The messiness can be created using a hair straightener. This is better than using the hair curler because curlers tend to give a more tamed appearance with the curls falling evenly. The hair straightener on the other hand does not allow the twisted loose curls to fall in proper places and these tend to mess out very easily. This is what is required to create celeb style messy hairstyles. You can wear these types of hairstyles for parties, work or even your college.
