This style is easy to achieve, and the casual, yet defined, style reflects an "I care but not obsessively" kind of a look. There are a variety of messy, spiky haircuts that are easy to maintain.

Short, Messy and Spiky
A short, messy and spiky cut is easy to maintain and style. The hair is kept short and close to the head around the sides and back, and it gradually lengthens toward the top, where it is the longest (about 1/2- to 1-inch long). Texturising gel adds a tousled yet defined look, keeping it classic and defined but somewhat messy looking. A texturising gel smooths the hair down on the sides and defines messy spikes on the top.
The Short, Messy and Spiky Mohawk
Take a tip from celebrity soccer player David Beckham and go for the short, messy mohawk. Beauty and the Bath refers to this style as a "false-hawk" because it is shorter on top and not totally shaved on the sides, like a typical mohawk cut is. This style has greatly increased in popularity over the past couple of years. The hair is kept short around the sides and back and gradually increases in length, reaching the longest length along a strip down the top of the head, about 2 inches wide. The hair is kept about 1/2 inch long at the top of the head, 1 inch long above the eyes and 1-1/2 to 2 inches long in the very middle. The hair is pushed up and toward the centre and held in place with a styling/texturising gel and/or hairspray.
An emo haircut presents a young, hip and alternative look. According to Beauty and the Bath, the more bold the better with this style. The hair is kept relatively short on the sides (about 1/2 inch long) and longer in the back (about 1 inch long), increasing in length toward the front (about 2 inches long) with the most length toward the fringe (about 3 or 4 inches long). The fringe are cut at an angle and fringed; shorter over one eye and tapered down toward the other. A styling/texturising gel adds definition, holding messy spikes up around the sides and in the back and smoothing the hair down toward the front.
