The thing about having a bad hair day is that it is always never planned. In the morning the alarm clock goes off and your daily activities ensue. Everything seems to be in order until that fateful glimpse in the mirror occurs… and then you realize it. You have hair that only Frankenstein could love and accept.
Nevertheless, having a bad hair day doesn’t mean it has to stay bad.
There are some tricks in the hair trade that can easily take your hair from the wall socket look to Instagram worthy. So then, how can a hair disaster be avoided or fixed? Keep reading.
Always keep the right tools and products on hand that can help transform misbehaving strands. A good brush, hair spray, bobby pins and hair ties should be items found in your hair arsenal. These products help to give your various hairstyles more control and stability.
Moreover, in order to maintain your hairstyle at night, you might consider sleeping with hair safely tucked in a silk scarf or rest your head on a satin pillowcase. Cotton pillowcases tend to “rough up” hair due to the friction caused as you change positions during sleep. Satin or silk allow your hair to slide safely during rest and can help to keep your hairstyle in place.
Never underestimate the use of stylish hair accessories. A glamorous hairpiece, headband, clip or hat can add instant flair to your hair. The reason why many bad hair days are unpleasant is because of not knowing how to style your hair.
Hair accessories help to take some of the guesswork or indecision out of the picture. Whether you pull your hair back, up, braid or twist it; combining such styling with an accessory easily brings everything nicely together.
