We women have a lot to contend with when it comes to beauty. If anyone of you has ever had a bad hair day, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
There are days when your hair just won’t play ball. Tips for bad hair days can vary from hairstylist to a friend giving you tips. It can range from a variety of things – from covering your hair up entirely with a scarf (although, frankly, that isn’t all that realistic for many of us) to styling tips. Try as we might, sometimes, just sometimes, bad hair days are simply unavoidable.
While they may make you want to tear your hair out, rest assured there are tips to rescue those bad hair days. These tips could perhaps help you next time you wake up and have a bad hair day:
- Messy bun – The messy bun is a fashionable favorite, and perfect for your bad hair day woes. The best part of the messy bun is that it doesn’t have to look perfect. Just right for those in a hurry!
- Pin it up – Turn to your go-to hair accessories to help rescue a bad hair day. Your fringe just doesn’t want to cooperate and if you need a quick fix, hairpins are your best friend.
- Curl it – A lot of hairstylists will tell you that when faced with a bad hair day, it’s best to avoid over-styling it. However, if your hair is limp and looking “off”, one of the best things to do is inject some life in it. Best way to do it to lightly curl the lower ends of your hair. Works on both long and short locks and it’s a great way to disguise unwanted frizzy hair.
- Dry shampoo it – We’re not sure about you lot but dry shampoo is a god-send. There are different kinds in the market from powder to spray form. If your hair feels oily or dirty but you’ve no time to wash your hair, dry shampoo is the answer! Spray it at your roots or if you’re using powder, rub it into your scalp to absorb the oil, comb it out and voila! You’ve fresher looking locks.
- Braid it – It isn’t all that hard to do and for those with longer locks, this can be a lifesaver. Whether you opt for thick braids, tight braids or a loose and messy braid, they all help disguise a bad hair day. Plus, it’s quite a cute look. Just ensure you don’t go too schoolgirl with your look to save you looking like a wannabe Disney princess.
