Messy Formal Hairstyle

Part off the direction of the bangs, outline the areas you personally want "backbrushed on the top and sides and you have the foundation started for this great, messy, formal look.   The side sections on this model were brought straight back, then pinned down while the body from the rest of the style overlaps it.  Taking care to keep the style "balanced" is masterfully important.  Sections, and sometimes individual tendrils, go in all directions, making this entire look disheveled.  The longer back and side pieces were exhibited with very long ringlet locks that can be done separately, then built up into longer curls that drape around the neck and down the shoulders.
