Getting ready in the morning is hard enough. But throw in uncooperative hair that’s fallen flat or gone crazy with curls, and it’s enough to make you want to just stay in bed. We’ve got three bad hair day solutions to help you out.
Even celebrities like Nina Dobrev know that sometimes the hair gods are just not on your side. Whether you’ve woken up and your second day hair has gone awry or you took a chance and went to bed with your hair wet (spoiler alert: that never works out), we’ve got a simple solution to your bad hair day.
Messy hair: If you’ve woken up with hair on the wild side like Nina, whether it’s crazy curls or uneven bumps, rather than fight it, work with what you’ve got and style your hair into a messy braid. Freshen up your hair first (especially if it’s a bit greasy) with a dry shampoo like Aveda Shampure Dry Shampoo, which is a non-aerosol powder formula that smells just like their shampoo. Then just pull your hair over to the side and create a classic three strand braid.
Greasy locks: When your hair is greasy beyond dry shampoo repair, a sleek low knot or ponytail style is your best option since the slicked back look tends to look wet as it is. Part your hair down the center and use a fine-toothed comb to pull your hair back into a tight, low ponytail. Leave your hair as is, or twist it into a knot and finish with a bit of shine spray like Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine so the grease looks like it’s on purpose.
