If you're looking for a styler that will give you that undone, textured look, then this is for you! DevaCurl Beautiful Mess Curl Sculpting Pomade is a unique gel-pomade that starts off dense but melts in your hands allowing you the freedom to create texture and volume for a perfectly imperfect effect. The moisturizing formula is made with jojoba oil and cupuaçu butter for softness and shine. Great for Wavy, Curly, and Super Curly hair. Fragrance: Aromatic, light, Orange scent creates a happy citrus sensation. Note: This product was formerly called Set Up & Above.

Start by rubbing a pea sized amount between hands or fingertips, then play! Apply at the roots for volume and then make your way from the mid-lengths of the hair to the ends to create a tousled look. Shake at the root with your hands and rough it up until desired effect is achieved. Anything goes!

        I bought this originally to freshen my curls but it did not do that. If I use a lot of it, my curls go straight and this is why I gave it a 4.. Be careful to only use a small amount in small areas only. It is great to tame those flyaways.Not a great all over product for my hair .

        Love the product but would love it even more if it were scented (smells a bit like floor wax).

        Comments about DevaCurl Beautiful Mess Curl Sculpting Pomade:

        I tried this for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I love that you need just a little but it both encourages my waves and keeps hair in place without being sticky or "crunchy."

        defines curls, without crunch

        By D from SEA

        from Seattle

        Pros

        • doesn't damage hair
        • good curl definition

        Cons

        • requires a lot of product on thick/long hair
        • sticky on hands (application)

        Best Uses

          Comments about DevaCurl Beautiful Mess Curl Sculpting Pomade:

          Takes a bit to learn how to use it (my stylist taught me), but it's amazing! Doesn't make hair "crunchy" and really defines the curls. It feels sticky to apply, but not once it is in your hair. I use it only on dry hair and it's necessary to use more of this product than other creams and mousses, but it's worth it.

            Comments about DevaCurl Beautiful Mess Curl Sculpting Pomade:

            I have fine, short, wavy hair and am new to the DevaCurl line of products. After much trial and error, I landed on Beautiful Mess and have found their styling product that works for me. I like that it is used after my hair is dry so that I can move it into place, giving definition, body and hold. Beautiful Mess might seem stiff right out of the jar, but I start with a pea size in the palm of my hand, warm the product by rubbing it between my hands and then apply it all over in a scrunch motion. A little extra can be added here and there with the fingertips. What I end up with is soft waves and curls that hold all day and into the next with just a little water to reactivate the product. The scent reminds me of plastic, but it's not strong, and it dissipates quickly.

                A:

                For best results, apply to palms and emulsify the product in your hands, then apply to damp hair and style as desired. A little goes a long way - start with a pea sized amount and add more as needed.
