6 Easy Fixes for Your Bad Hair Day

You’ve woken up with the classic bed hair; messy, unpredictable and not what you want for a Monday morning. Whether it’s a bad haircut, or you forgot the last time you washed it, here are the best tips to look fashionable with minimal effort

You’ve woken up with the classic bed hair; messy, unpredictable and not what you want for a Monday morning. Whether it’s a bad haircut, or you forgot the last time you washed it, here are the best tips to look fashionable with minimal effort (rather than hiding under the covers in shame).

#1 Braid it!

An instant saviour for a bad hair day, learning to braid will be your new best friend. Its versatile, on trend, and goes with every outfit choice and occasion. A simple 3 strand braid will transform your hair with minimal effort, or if you have time, maybe a fishtail braid or French plait. You can even add accessories to finish off the look. It’s the best disguise for unwashed, bed head or just a quick way of making you look ready for the day!

#2 Style it in a bun

Everyone can pull off a bun hairstyle. Messy hair makes a great messy bun, and it will look effortless. It doesn’t have to look perfect, and any mistakes can be covered instantly. Style it with a headband, and some oversized earrings.

#3 Dry Shampoo!!

If your hair is looking limp and lifeless, spray some dry shampoo into the roots, giving it a freshen up and a bit of volume too. Make sure you brush it through your hair to avoid the dry shampoo “whitewash” look! We recommend Batiste Cherry

#4 Accessorise your tresses

Accessories can be a great touch, even if you are having a fantastic hair day! With so many on trend, you can add everything from stylish clips to a flowery Alice band, and it will suit any look you want. It will take attention from your bad hair, and everyone will ask you where you bought your clips from!

#5 Make sure everything else looks fabulous!

If your make-up is looking on point, your outfit choice is perfect and you look ready to smash the day, then why worry about your hair? You will feel much more confident if everything else looks great, and will forget about your hair. Plus, everyone else will be too busy complimenting you to care about if your hair is a little out of place!

#6 Rock a hat

If all else fails, and you are having a complete melt down, then bring out the best hat you own! It can be an oversized sunhat, paired with sunglasses and a jumpsuit, or a beanie-style hat, with a jumper and a pair of boots. Hats are versatile and a lifesaver in bad hair day circumstances.
