No time to shower? Or maybe you’re just bored with your same old hair routine. Regardless, most experts agree that the majority of us don’t need to wash our hair every day. But what to do on day two? These second-day hair hacks will save you stress and accelerate your morning without anyone ever knowing you’re not sporting a freshly cleaned style.
Try a Spiced-Up Ponytail
Ariana Grande and the entire Kardashian fam stand by the sleek pony – and so do we! To get this look, use some gel or hairspray to pull your hair into a high ponytail, then smooth out any flyaways or similar craziness. Want to dress it up? Just put on a pair of gold hoops.
Accentuate With Accessories
Hair accessories like headbands and hair scarves will up your style game with very minimal effort. Another option is a very on-trend barrette placed just above the base of your pony. So cute!
Use Dry Shampoo
Our favorite trick is not really a trick since we all know it: dry shampoo! The little bit of volume it adds takes your look from “I woke up like this” to “My hairstylist just crafted this masterpiece.”
Perfect the Low Messy Bun
Another great day-two look? Try a low messy bun. Leave out a few pieces to frame your face, then loosely pull back the rest of your hair. From there, twist up and add a pin. For some extra pizazz, try adding a slight curl to your front pieces.
Switch Your Part
To cover up dirty roots, swap the side of your part or give a middle part a go. This trick also works to disguise unwanted grays or noticeably dark roots.
Restore life to second-day hair by introducing yours to a teasing comb. That pillow-flattened mess will look brand new after you section out the roots all around your head and give each area a little tease. Boom – volume restored!
Spritz & Scrunch
Curly hair presents a particular challenge in quick refreshes. To bring your natural ringlets back to life, mix some water and leave-in conditioner into a spray bottle. Spritz all over, give it a good scrunch, and voila! Have a great day with your fabulously hacked second-day hair!
