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 Axe Messy Look: Matte 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.
