Five Minute Fix-Up: Adam's Intentionally Messy Style

Adam Richardson, Motion and Design Editor for Paul Mitchell®, is known for coming to work in a suit and bowtie with perfectly coiffed hair each morning.   As a Paul Mitchell The School grad and a professional hairstylist, he is well-versed in creating his classic look. But even with a signature style, everyone craves a bit of a change once in a while. Here’s how Adam shakes up his styling routine every now and then:

"On weekday mornings, I generally opt for a polished, office-appropriate look. If I have plans to meet a friend after work, my signature style is sometimes too stiff. For a more worn-in, casual look, I work a dime-sized amount of Construction Paste® into my hands apply it in the direction that I’ve already styled my hair. I’ll skip the comb and use only my fingers to twist some pieces and add height in the front until I get the right intentionally messy look. I usually won’t mess with the sides. I like to keep them smooth, even with a more "undone’ style on top. In a matter of 3 minutes, I am happy-hour-ready!"
