How to Style Dirty Hair and Hide the Evidence


If you’re anything like me, you will know that sleep is a priority and sometimes that means forfeiting the morning hair wash in favour of something quick and easy that doesn’t involve a labour of love.

Dirty hair doesn’t have to mean greasy, unwashed and matted hair that has your desk buddy asking if you have showered this week. Instead, we have complied some of the best dirty hair hiders for you to add to your morning routine.

 :: Bed head to beachy waves

Turn your bedhead hair into cool as a cucumber beachy waves. All that you need to do is to separate your hair into smaller sections and spritz with texturizing sea salt spray, scrunch by grabbing the bottom of your hair in the palm of your hand, scrunch and you are set to go!

:: Messy Ponytail

Upgrade this go-to second-day hairstyle with a cool, edgy twist on the ‘tail. Spray a small amount of hairspray on the roots to promote textures and comb through. Pull your hair back at the nape of your neck or higher, at the back of your head if you prefer, secure with a hair tie and then wrap a one-inch section of hair around the elastic to hide it.

:: The five-second top-knot

MAAAAJORLY overslept? Morning gym work out went over time? No worries! Hide your hurried hair in a glam topknot. Gather your hair into a high ponytail and then twist it into a bun. Then apply a shine serum to the top to create a slick and healthy glow, covering all evidence of greasy, unwashed hair.

Feeling like one is not enough? Divide your hair down the middle, splitting it in half. Then put each section in a ponytail on either side of the upper part of the back of your head, secure with elastic. Grab each ponytail and twist around the elastic that is already securing your ponytail and secure with a second elastic. Pull buns out and tease to hide grease while giving each bun a messy, textured look.
