Hairstyle Ideas for Bad Hair Days

Most of us have been there: You wake up to find that your bed head hair is more out of control than normal! Whether you can’t get it to cooperate or simply don’t have the time to get it to cooperate, you don’t want to leave the house without looking somewhat presentable. So here are some creative hairstyle ideas for bad hair days.

Half-Up Bun

Half-up bun hairstyles are super-intuitive, but don’t let that fool you. Instead of grabbing your hair and tying it into a bun, you should first separate the top half of your hair into a tight ponytail. Next, tease the end of the pony and twist it around the base. Finally, secure the bun in place with a few bobby pins. Check out this step-by-step tutorial.

Fishtail Ponytail

If you have long, shiny hair, a fishtail ponytail is a perfect bad hair day look! First, throw your hair up in a high ponytail and separate it into two sections. Next, take a smaller piece from outside the right section and cross it over to join the left section. Then repeat this on the left side. Continue alternating until the fishtail braid is complete. If you’re going for a messier look, you can pull the braid gently at the end. Check out this step-by-step tutorial.

French Braid

To create a French braid, grab a section of hair from the top middle of your head and separate it into three parts. Begin with a traditional braid in a “right over center, left over center” pattern. Then, start bringing other sections of your hair into the braid. Keep doing this until you reach the nape of your neck, and then continue with a traditional three-section braid until the end.

The ballerina bun is one of the easiest ways to camouflage unruly or greasy hair. (Oily hair can even make the bun look better since it will be sleek and free of flyaways!) There are several ways of creating a ballerina bun; some involve using a clean tube sock or doughnut ring. Check out this step-by-step tutorial.

The Side Braid with Flair

This hairstyle takes the braid to the next level. To start this look, French braid the front section of your hair down to your ear. After that, continue with a regular braid.
