Chopped Messy Look

Chopped Messy Look Hairstyle:

What to ask for in the barbershop: Ask your barber to scissor cut the top, and clipper cut back and sides. Make sure you ask them to leave enough on the top to achieve a messy look, and also ask for a fade down to a #2 clip - this style doesn't suit going to high or too tight. Explain that you like to wear your style messy, a little textured and not too controlled, with your hair a little defined on top. Your barber might suggest they use thinning shears if you have particularly thick hair.

Ideal hair type: Particularly good for medium-fine hair. Not so good if you’re thinning or don’t like wearing your hair neat and controlled all the time. Hair length needs to be a little shorter on the sides and longer on the top for this style to work.

Styled with: Uppercut Deluxe Featherweight

How to recreate at home: Start with dry hair, having let your hair dry naturally without a dryer or too much towelling. Scoop a generous amount of Uppercut Deluxe Featherweight and spread evenly across both hands – fingers and palms. Start by massaging product gently into the root sections of the hair with your fingertips, then continuing to piece individual strands with your fingers to add definition. Once you start to run out of product on your fingers, re-rub your hands together to spread product to your fingers again. Make sure you don't get too much product into the sides and back - no one likes an unsightly product smear next to your ear. Finally, use your fingertips to lift your fringe and rake through from front to back. Be careful not to flatten your style as you go.
