We all go through days when our hair simply refuses to behave! Yes my darlings, I am talking about the bad hair days! 🙂 How do you handle your bad hair days and sill manage to look stylish? I usually tie my hair up into a ponytail or a messy bun and simply cannot think of anything more than that. Recently I was browsing through some runway images and I came across some really cool hairstyle ideas that can make your bad hair days wonderful. They are quite simple and looks easy to achieve and totally not like the usual complicated runway hair dos. Here is a compilation of some bad hair day life-savers. Read on 🙂
A bun is my go-to hairstyle whenever I am going through a bad hair day. Usually I just tie my hair into a ponytail, twist it around and secure it with a pin. But there is so much more that we all can do than just a simple bun. Have a look at these ideas.
I personally love the messy bun look as it’s the easiest to wear. Just toss you hair a bit to create some volume, twist your hair into a quick bun and secure with a pin or a hair band. You can add some volumizing hair spray or gel for extra boost.
The neat look is great for evenings and looks perfect with a dress or a pretty top. Add some gel to tame the fly-away hair and tie your hair into a high or a low bun. Use hair pins to take care of the ends
I love a braided look on occasions where my hair is absolutely unmanageable. It’s a simple, messy braid with a tiny band to hold the ends. I seriously love these new hair braiding ideas. What about you?
This out-of-the-bed hair look is my favourite. It’s simple and casual and great for a day out. Be sure to use some hair products to add texture and volume if you wish.
If you like a more natural yet clean style of braiding, add some smoothening serum to the hair and try out this tidier version of braiding. This can work both with a centre parting or on back combed hair.
For a more feminine yet informal hair do, this messy braided bun is a great alternative. To achieve a do-at-home version of this style, add some texture spray and work out three braids from the crown, twist them around, roll into a bun and secure with hair pins.
This one is my favourite and probably the easiest of the hairstyle that one can try out on the go. Just tie your hair into a high, low or medium sized ponytail and you are ready. But wait a second, how about trying something new with a regular ponytail style like the images given below?
To achieve this sleek ponytail, use some gel all over your hair, back comb and tie it with a hair band at the nape of the neck. Straighten the ends for a cleaner look or leave them natural. You can also try out a really high ponytail using this technique if that suits your style.
For a more natural day look, use some volume spray and blow dry your hair and tie your ponytail low and loose.
Those of you with curly hair or like to have curly hair would love this ponytail style. For natural curls just tie your hair with a band and roll a strand of hair around the band to cover it. For the rest of us, we need a curling iron or at least some bit of crimping to get this look right.
I usually never wear my hair wet unless I am doing a blog photo shoot. But it’s one of the best ways to tackle a not so good hair day, specially when the hair is not washed for a couple of days.
The wet look is quite easy to achieve. All you need are some wet look gel, smoothening serum and that’s about it! You may just create the wet look in the crown and leave the ends looking natural, or gel all of your hair for a more glamorous version. This hairstyle looks great with natural make up as well as red lips and extra large sunglasses. Brilliant isn’t it? 🙂
On a regular day I use a head band to add some excitement to a basic look. But there are much more possibilities of playing with hair accessories. Think scarfs, think flower crowns and if out of ideas, scroll down for some inspiration.
You may even accessorize some of the hair style given above with a bandana, cute little hair clips, floral head bands and chains.
So, what do you think of these hair dos? Are you going to try any of these? Are there any other ways you take care of a bad hair day? I am really eager to hear from you, so pour in your comments! 🙂
