This messy pony tail rocks!!!
So simple to do also.
Just make sure your hair is prepped properly and
your good to go. I recommend a good mousse and
always have a nozzle on your hair drier as this helps
control the air flow and keep your hair in check.
A good backcombing brush or comb and no break
hair bobbles and kirby grips.

I was not only lucky enough to style the hair of some of my closest friends and clients for their weddings last year but I also got to get my own hair styled for my own wedding in November, (Ruairi I work with did my hair and I loved it).
