Tackling a Bad Hair Day – Even on Valentine’s Day!

Having a bad hair day and have no time to spend fixing a great hairdo? Try these simple yet stylish solutions for a quick fix so that you look professional and stylish when you get to work on one of these days.

Simple Updo: This is the best and the easiest style to achieve if you have literally no time to spend on your hair and have to rush out. All you need is a few bobby pins and an elastic band and you are good to go. This hairstyle works even better if your hair is oily and you haven’t washed it for a few days. Just make sure that you don’t pull your hair back too tightly as it will create a matted look. Slight backcombing will help you achieve the perfect look. Make sure you put on some earrings to complete the professional yet chic look.

Hairbands and Accessories: If you have short hair that cannot be pulled into an updo, your options are somewhat limited but the situation isn’t totally out of control. One great way of camouflaging unwashed, oily hair is using a hairband to pull the hair back. You can also use some jewelled accessories to hold the hair in place and create a great look at the same time.

Easy braids: With long hair, you can never go wrong with braids. It is up to you if you want to do one or two, but the key is to make the braids loose so that it creates a soft, relaxed look which will look great in any situation. If you want to make it fancier, you can also add some accessories with the braids.

Braided Bun: If you are looking for a little more sophistication and elegance, the best solution is to part your hair in the middle and make two braids. Then you can wrap the two braids in a neat bun and hold it in place with the help of a few pins. This is a great style for work and it neatly hides your hair’s oiliness.

Tousled Knots: While you do need a bit of practice to make the prefect tousled knots, once you learn how to do them you can be ready for work within no time. All you need is a couple of pins to hold the knots in place and you are done. They look great on wavy, curly and straight hair and offer a casual yet stylish look. Whether you have long or medium length hair, tousled knots are the way to go.

French Braid Bun: If you know how to make a French braid, this is the perfect hairdo for you and even if you don’t, you have to learn it because it is simple enough. When you don’t have time to wash your hair, just make a French braid and then tie it into a loose bun. If your hair is long enough you can also move it to the side to achieve the perfect look.
