We have all woken up on the day of that important social event or interview with totally outrageous hair. It’s like your hair knows that you need it to look it’s best so it immediately becomes unmanageable and dull. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer the effects of a bad hair day. Follow the below tips to disguise a bad hair day in an instant!
Dry shampoo will be your absolute saviour for a number of different hair disasters. Dry shampoo will immediately lift the grease from your hair giving it a fresh/clean look. A spritz of dry shampoo will also add texture to your hair so if you are trying to style it and it’s simply not playing ball then dry shampoo will make it more manageable and easily styled. Keep a bottle of it in your bag for whenever you might need a freshen up or some help with styling.
Fix it in an up-do
If you aren’t feeling your hair on a certain day, the best thing to do is style it in an up do as opposed to having it flowing free. There are many easy and quick up do’s you can adopt which will only take a few moments such as a brushed back high ponytail, a messy bun or some braids. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with some hair clips and accessories.
Change your parting
You might not have necessarily thought that this would fix a bad hair day for you but it will. If you wear your hair in a center parting then try wearing it on the side or in a zigzag. As long as you are changing it up a little then you will change the way you see your bad hair day and how you handle it.
Detangle and anti-frizz
Most bad hair days are a result of messy tangled hair and excessive frizz. The best ways to combat these in an instant is to detangle your hair by brushing it gently. Once you have detangled your hair apply some anti-frizz serum through it to smooth it out.
Wear a hat
It may be stating the obvious but at the same time it might be something you haven’t thought of. If your hair is too hideous to see the light of day then it’s a good idea to wear a fashionable hat of some sort. Depending upon where you need to be you can wear a baseball hat, trilby or beanie hat or whatever you prefer.
With the 5 techniques above, you can make sure you never have another bad hair day again. It doesn’t have to be the end of the world when your hair doesn’t do what you want it to because you can fix it. With a little bit of patience and a positive attitude you can always take control of the situation. And of course, if all else fails, just wear a hat.
