Every girl faces the same problem at least two times a week: what to do with that flat, often greasy second-day hair. Though it is a little gross, it is best to skip a day between hair washes to preserve the natural oils that make your hair shiny without any products! In the meantime, it is time to get a bit craftier and more stylish than a ponytail on these off-days, incorporating some of the biggest trends of the fall.
Good hats are hard to find. Luckily, hats are such a huge trend this season that there are different shapes and sizes every store you go into. I have never been big into hats, but after a recent trip to H&M I have hope that I will find a few different styles to try out this season.
A great suede rounded-rim hat for fall is the perfect accessory to go with your favorite leather boots. Hats look best with second-day curly or wavy hair, making it look like you actually did your hair that day. Celebrities such as Nicole Richie and Khloe Kardashian are often spotted sporting their favorites. Beanies are also seasonally perfect for the fall and winter, keeping your head warm, hair tame, and style looking flawless.
Though headbands may be an obvious thing to resort to when you find the need to pull your hair back and out of your face, there are so many cute styles to shop for this season to change your style up a bit. From bohemian prints to jewel encrusted, there is a headband out these for every occasion!
Whether you are daring and wear your hair down or pull it back into a messy ponytail or bun, headbands easily transform your hair to look sleek and put-together.
Ever since watching The Hills on MTV when Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port made the single braid cool, playing with braids on bad hair days have been a staple of mine. You can French braid small sections or your entire head! Pull back bangs or fly-aways with a standard simple braid or get creative with braids such as the waterfall or fishtail.
Again, with braids you can either go all out or just braid small sections that may need a touch-up. Trying a braid with a skinny headband would be awesome, too.
The Sock Bun
A huge discovery in the hair world this year was the famous sock bun. With practice, the sock bun can be one of the chicest hairstyles a girl can wear, and greasy hair is ideal for trying to accomplish this look.
How to achieve the sock bun? First, cut the toes area off of an old sock you don’t care much about. Tip: The longer your hair, the thicker the sock you want to use. Roll your sock from the toes to the heel, creating a donut shape. Put your hair in a high pony and place the sock at the end of your hair with your ponytail in the hole in the middle. Roll your ponytail around the sock, almost the same way you rolled the sock to make the round shape. Voila! A sock bun! It takes a lot of practice, but once you’ve got it down it is one of the easiest go-to hairstyles for a bad hair day.
