Five gorgeous fixes for a bad hair day

Five gorgeous fixes for a bad hair day

Kim Kardashian recently revealed that she goes up to five days without washing her hair. While some people (read me) might call that excessive, there is no denying the fact that we girls also go through similar spells of shampoo-less hair in a week or two. However, unlike Kim, we don’t have an entire crew of hairstylists waiting on us, to style our hair into a catwalk-ready frame. Since bad hair days are literally unavoidable, we give you a few secrets to effortless quick fixes which will make your hair look uber cool; we promise!!

Bad hair day #1- Beach waves

The day after a hair wash is when our hair has a nice texture to it. Hence, this is when tousled beach waves work best. Just spritz some texturizing hair spray (with some sea salt) in your hair and scrunch it. This will give volume and add definition to your waves. For straight hair, apply some curling cream and tie your hair in a bun. Before leaving the house, untie your hair and spray some salt induced spray and voila, you are ready with gorgeous mane.

Bad hair day #2- Fishtail Braid

This is one of the go-to styles when my hair is behaving particularly difficult. The fishtail braid is super cute, chic and looks elaborate though it just takes a few minutes. Watch Lauren from ‘One hills’ re-create this style for you.

Bad hair day #3- Messy Side bun

Messy side buns are perfect for date nights. Think a long day of work followed by a date or a fun night out with friends. It will take barely five mins and the best part- no perfection needed; the messier the better. Watch the below tutorial to know more.

Bad hair day #4- Top Knot

The top knot is one of the glamorous options for fixing a bad hair day. It requires zero effort and could be done on the go. What you need is a voluminizing spray, hair brush, hair pins and hair tie. Spritz your hair with your preferred spray, backcomb and tease your hair to get the desired volume. Pull your hair high up in a ponytail at the top of your head. Twist the hair and coil it around itself. Use bobby pins to keep it in place.

 Bad hair day #5- Turban headband

Turban headbands are very boho chic and is a great way to style your unwashed hair. There are so many different ways by you could wear this- either let your hair loose and put the headband on or with a top knot; the possibilities are endless.

In addition to experimenting with tons of different hairstyles, dry shampoos are also a total rage currently. Just spray some dry shampoo on your hair and you are good to go. Alternatively, if you are looking to soak up the extra oil from you hair, rubbing a little baby powder to the roots will also work wonders for your mane.
