Having a good hair day is one of the best feelings in the world. But luck is not always on our side on most days. We’ve all been in days when we’re running late and could care less about our hair, or when our hair just does not try to cooperate with us, or even when we’re too lazy to do anything to it at all. Running to the salon every day is not an option. So how do we still keep our hair to look flawless at such times? Here’s 17 hairstyle tricks that’ll answer all these questions and immediately make your hair-do look a lot better.
Use dry shampoo the night before
Dry shampoo is the holy grail for anyone with even slightly oily hair. It saves a lot of time and is great when you’re just too lazy to wash your hair. Using dry shampoo the night before will suck all the excess oil in your hair and make it look as if you’ve just stepped out of the shower and blow dried your hair.
Elegant headband twist in less than 60 seconds
Instead of wrapping your hair in a bun at the last minute, use your headband to make an elegant bun. Just roll your hair over the headband, pull it over your head like you’d usually do and you’re done. Tease a little if you’re feeling like it and set everything with some hairspray. Elegant flawless bun in less than 60 seconds.
Instead of spraying hairspray in your hair, spray it in your hands
Spraying hairspray directly onto your hair can stiffen it and even damage it. To avoid that, spray the hairspray lightly in your hands and rub it in your hair. It’ll do the job just as right.
Instant longer and fuller ponytail
A regular ponytail can sometimes look to casual and lifeless. To add some life to it, you can double its length and volume. How? It’s really easy. Just split your hair into two sections, one upper and one lower. Tie them both differently in a ponytail. Tease the upper ponytail and brush it as so to cover the lower ponytail. And Voila! Instant 2x long and voluminous ponytail in no time.
