We strongly believe that hair can either make or break your day. And nod your head if you feel you own the world on good hair days. But then there are days when you dread stepping out of the house because no matter what you do, your hair just doesn’t want to listen to you, and most of the times this happens when you have to go somewhere important. So we thought we should share these five hacks that can help you turn a bad hair day into a not-so bad hair day. We bet these will be of great use for times when you are in a rush and just want your tresses to behave.
Split Ends? Curl them up
The ideal way to get rid of those ugly split ends would be to get a trim, but if you haven’t had the time to bag that haircut appointment, here’s the best trick. If you curl the ends of your hair it will give some bounce to them and also keep those frayed ends out of sight.
Hair accessories can be your best friends
Remember that hair-band you bought years ago but haven’t had the chance to use it? Now is the time to bring it out. Cleverly-placed hair accessories are a great way to hide your bad hair days. Ideally, you should keep one in your hand-bag, so when a last-minute plan pops up, you are ready. It’s perfect for hiding those oily roots or a fussy fringe.
A slick pony like the Kardashians
A study shows that ‘bad hair day = a bad work day’. So make sure, you feel great about your hair to have a productive day at work. Instead of weighing day-old hair down with pomades, slick it back with a touch of conditioner. A small dollop can smooth out frizz completely, so comb it through, pull hair into a centre part and tie it above the nape of your neck.
Tie it up with a headscarf
When humidity strikes, a headscarf works wonders. Wrap your locks with a head scarf instead of going for a boring bun. And don’t worry about those stray flyaways. Once you’ve tied a scarf at the top of your head, that frizzy halo looks cool.
The age-old braid never lets you down
If you want to let down the rest of your hair, and it’s just your bangs that are acting up, try this fringe braid. The girly hairstyle would look great with a cute dress and stilettos. Simply form a side part and start braiding the front from the very root, working through your entire lengths then tying it with a clear elastic.
