5 Easy ways to hide dirty hair & look good

Dirty hair days are a bad predicament to be in. They makes you want to throw a baseball hat on top of your head and skulk unnoticed for the rest of the day. While that's a totally viable option (and has been used by yours truly a time or two), there are other options that don't involve an old, boring hat. All it takes is an extra minute or two in the morning and you'll end up with looks that'll make your forget your strands had fresher days. Here are seven non-obvious ways to hide a skipped-shampoo day. Keep them close and your mornings will be saved.

The ol' headwear con
  • Why do you think celebrities wear so many hats (and hair scarves)? They can’t do their own blowouts either, so bide the in-between hairstylist time with a little felt. Let’s call Jessica Alba the queen of this hat bluff.

Side part bun
  • Often, the concentration of oil will be along the center-part line so you can get away with spritzing dry shampoo over a side part and gently backcombing so you’ve got height at the roots and through the lengths. Affix into a side-pony or low-bun, keeping the whole look loose and relaxed.

Delay it
  • Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender: Get on it. The buzz on this product is huge, and with good reason, it allows you to starve off dirty hair for 2x longer than regular styling products using their technology that repels dirt and oil. It also works to hold styles for longer… double win!

Work with, not against
  • Not for the faint-hearted, but for the hair experimental types why not take a note from the runway with a wet look effect? Steal your boyfriend’s pomade or gel, and work a deliberately downtown, Alexander Wang-esque effect.

Work with it
  • Some of the best hair magic happen when you’ve got excessive oiliness, believe it or not. Add some volumizing powder into it (or baby powder, if you’re desperate) and you’ve got yourself a texture party that’s great for going with the beach hair look, Keep adding powder for this one; the more the better.
