5 Super Easy Ways To Conceal A Bad Hair Day


Life may not be perfect, but it’s always a good idea for your hair to be. But how about those moments when your hair just doesn’t want to stay in place and endeavors to ruin your whole ensemble? This is what I call a bad hair day. A bad hair day comes unexpectedly and we just want to pull out our magic wand and yell “be gone.” However, it doesn’t work this way. It will always take something more practical than wishful thinking to handle a bad hair day.

A bad hair day can be due to several factors like the weather, lack of shampooing and conditioning, or extra moisturizing. Regardless of what your current issue is, you want to know how to fix it quickly so you can get your day started.

Check out 5 easy ways to turn a bad hair day into a badass hair day…

#1. Do a messy bun

Messy hair isn’t the end of the world. If your hair has chosen to go all messy, then, by all means, allow it. Play up the messy feel by holding your hair in a loose bun, aka, messy bun. This hairstyle is trendy, sexy, and easy to do.

How to:

Step 1: Gather your hair into a smooth ponytail using an elastic band, making sure to position it on your preferred spot

Step 2: Twist the ‘tail’ into a bun, allowing for loose ends

Step 3: Use your fingers or a brush to work your edges to appear messy. The more loose hair, the better. Just ensure it still appears tasteful

Step 4: Finish off with your favorite hairspray

Now you get why celebrities can’t seem to get enough of it.

#2. Try dry shampoo

As stated earlier, a lack of shampooing can be the reason for your bad hair day. This is because excess grease can accumulate, thereby weighing down your hair. The obvious way to deal with this is to have a good shampooing/conditioning session but what if you’re in a hurry? Dry shampoo to the rescue! Simply spray your hair with this miracle worker making sure to concentrate on your roots. That way, the shampoo goes to work soaking up oils where it mostly settles.


#3. Braid your hair

Braids are so versatile. You could just make one big loose braid and tilt it towards the side, resting on your shoulder while using a band to hold the tip in place, or you could make two large cornrows. It all depends on you. Whatever you do, slay you must. It goes without saying that braids are reputation-savers when it comes to a bad hair day. You can’t afford to lose your slay today, your protégés are waiting to take style lessons and you’re not one to disappoint *winks*.

#4. Bring the heat

If you have time to spare and it’s not one of those days where you have to run off, heat will do the magic. It’ll curb that frizz like a bad habit you’ll be stunned at the results. But don’t forget to apply a heat protector first. Once you can straighten that hair and put those stubborn strands in check, or better still curl the ends of your hair, you’re good to go. Heat styling, when done right, can give your hair a new life.

#5. Stylishly cover up with a headwear

When you just don’t feel like any style is doing it for you, grab a scarf or any hair covering. They can do no wrong. If you know your style game, you’re definitely going to pull this look off even though you’re headed for a board meeting. You can choose a hat, turban, scarf…whatever! Headwear takes the attention away from your insubordinate hair and will switch up your look real quick and with minimal effort.

Shop bad hair day necessities

Remember it’s only a bad hair and not necessarily a bad day. Don’t let it dampen your mood or mess with your confidence. You are beautiful, bad hair day or not. But it won’t hurt to fix that hair too. Smile!
