Messy messy v. Messy cute

Fishtail BraidIf you're like me, you usually have big ambitions for elaborate hairstyles and then procrastinate until it's almost time to leave the house to attempt them. Too many times, it ends up in disaster and brushing your hair back into the same old straight style. I've been trying to give myself more time, but also — more latitude, and that's where Messy messy v. Messy cute comes in. Perfection is usually boring anyways. If you can achieve Messy cute, I say go for it — own the few flyaways or the slightly asymmetrical angle. This Bumble and Bumble stylist had to muss his perfect fishtail braid, but we can probably just skip that step.
