Hi & welcome to The Messy Heads. This blog was started in the heat of the summer months, running around with a camera in one hand and a coffee in the other, capturing everything inspiring. We have grown so much since then, creating something that focuses on inspiration, adventure, and truly living our authentic life.
In addition to being a blog with daily updates, we are also have a quarterly magazine, The Messy Issue, which can be purchased in our shop. Each magazine focuses on a theme and explores it in depth, inviting you to dive deeper and learn more about yourself.
The weird name “The Messy Heads” was chosen because we want you to know right from the get-go that we are not seeking perfection. You won’t find how to get perfect hair, say the right thing to guys, or learn 10 ways to lose 10 pounds before summer. We want you to realize that perfection is unattainable, and life is better lived messy.
So, what is a Messy Head?
Messy heads are kind of undefinable, but that’s the whole point. If I had to describe to you what a messy head was, it would go something like this. A messy head is one part Chanel and one part zephyr child. They wear whatever they feel, from winged eyeliner, to pearls, to tattered old Levis. They hop fences, sing too loudly, and love harder than anyone. They are the type that stay out late strumming guitar and looking at the stars, and wake up early to a cup of coffee. They aren’t perfect, and will never have to be, in fact they don’t care about being perfect at all, they would rather be beautiful on the inside, not the outside. Because really anyone can be a pretty face, but not everyone can have an interesting mind.
A messy head never ever passes up an opportunity to do something they love or stand up for what they believe in for fear of getting judged. Because those people that judge you have already made up their minds. A messy head can’t be defined easily, and doesn’t define others easily. They accept and love the world around them and take it all in. They would rather acknowledge than ignore and never stay, they always explore.

The Messy Heads is ususally created from my dining table with a cup of tea or out in a coffee shop for hours. You are always welcome to be part of the blog and email us any thoughts or submissions that you have, we love including our readers on our site.
