Smooth and sleek hairstyles can make anyone look smart and dapper. But it’s also good to try a new look once in a while. If you’re feeling a bit experimental, why don’t you try a messy look? It’s easy, and you only need a few tools. Ready? Check out this messy hair tutorial to learn how to create this hairstyle.


Prep your hair

Achieve a great hairstyle by washing it first with a shampoo that refreshes your scalp. We recommend CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo to give your scalp that presko feeling while helping to fight and prevent dandruff.


Add texture

An important step of this messy hair tutorial for men is spraying on some texturizing spray to add texture to your hair. This will keep your hair from looking flat and limp. 


Apply hair putty

Place a small amount of putty on your palm and rub your palms together before applying it on your hair. It ensures the putty is evenly spread on your hair. Don’t know what putty to use? Try VO5 Rough It Up Putty to give your messy hair a light texture and hold. 


Comb your hair

Detangle your hair using a fine-toothed comb. 


Let's do the twist

Take a small section of hair on one side and twist it. This will create the messy textured hairstyle that you’re gunning for.



Keep twisting small sections of your hair until all sections have been twisted. Your messy hair is almost done!


Dry your hair

Use a diffuser to dry your messy hair while keeping its texture.


Loosen the twists

Finger-comb your hair to make the twisted sections loose.
