5 ways to disguise a bad hair day

Whilst it would be great if every day could be a good hair day, unfortunately sometimes life gets in the way. Whether you’ve woken up late and have 5 minutes to get out the door, or your hairs so frizzy taming it requires super strength, some days will be inevitably bad hair days. Short of donning a wide brimmed hat (they’re better suited for the races), there are far easier – and prettier ways to hide a bad hair day. Here’s some of the best.

Put it up in a ponytail

If all else fails you can pull your hair back into a ponytail to hide any fly always or frizziness. You can even add a French plait at the front or you could add a small bouffant.

Plait it

A messy plait is a great way to put your hair up without having to spend a lot of time and effort. It’s super easy to do and takes about five minutes for a simple braid.


Shampoo only the front section

If you really don’t have time to shampoo and do all your hair you can focus mainly on the front section. Tie the rest of your hair back and leave the front section on show, it’s the perfect way to let your fringe take centre stage.

Messy bun

Pull your hair into a ponytail then wrap the tail around itself to create a bun. You can do a low bun or high bun depending on the look you’re going for. Once you’ve created your bun pull random strands out and fold them over to create a curl, pin this with a Kirby grip next to your bun.

Dry shampoo

Every girls goto when their hair just doesn’t want to play ball. Whether your hair starts to look greasy after one day or you don’t have time to wash it, dry shampoo will get you through.
