Hairstyles for Bad Hair Days

With the health risks due to the coronavirus, the state has closed down salons and encouraged social distancing. While you do want to stay safe, you probably also look forward to the day when you can get a new do.

Whether you need a cut or hair treatment, you might wonder what you can do to cover up any imperfections and still look nice. Luckily, you have many easy at-home hairstyle options to try that can fit your tastes and lifestyle.

Check out these three hairstyles for bad hair days to start looking better while you’re stuck at home.

1. Grab a Headband

Whether you have short or long hair, you can easily hide a bad hair day by slipping on a headband. Even better, they’re easy to use and give you a lot of options to be creative or look more casual.

If you find that you have a lot of flyaways, consider a wide headband or even use a scarf to create your own. You can also use a narrower headband if you just need to push messy hair back while you work in the yard or clean your house.

To stand out, try a headband that shows a pattern or includes sparkly gems. Otherwise, a neutral colored headband works great for a casual look.

2. Add in Some Braids

If you’ve got long enough hair, you can easily create a basic side ponytail braid that will look sleek even if you’re due for a trim. You can also consider French or fishtail braids if your braiding skills are more advanced and you’re looking for something more sophisticated.

When you have short hair, you don’t have to shy away from braids either thanks to the help of bobby pins and hairspray or gel. You can add a small accent braid on the side of your hair or even try multiple braids for a more creative look. Sticking a few cute hairpins in can also help spice up your hairdo.

3. Try a Messy Bun

If you seek hairstyles for messy hair, then look no further than a messy bun that can hold you over until you can get a hair treatment. This style actually works best if you haven’t washed your hair for a few days, but dry shampoo can give some texture on clean hair.

Simply start with a loose ponytail, twist your hair to form the bun shape, and then use bobby pins and a hairband to secure the look. Feel free to do a traditional bun higher on the head or a low bun off to the side.

You can easily adapt this hairstyle to wear your hair half up and half down if you have short hair or just prefer that look.
