    I've never tried Beautiful Mess, so I don't know how it works.  But a couple ideas for a replacement - Curl Keeper Tweek or AG Dry Lift.  Tweek is marketed as a hair spray in a bottle.  It's a super thick cream, and I use just enough to coat my fingertips to fix the top of my hair.  I'm not crazy about it though.  AG Dry Lift is more like a pomade.  I haven't really used it, so I don't know how it works.  But it's solid like a pomade, you just run your fingers across the top to pick some up.

    Ag Dry Lift has alcohol denat in it.... and the shop I order from doesn't have it anyway. Curl Keeper Tweek is probably a good alternative though.
