Second day hair? We’ve all been there. Whether you keep your locks healthy with a once a week wash, or just hit the snooze too many times and had no time to wash your hair, I’ve got you. I personally go about three to four days between washes, and those in-between days can mean some pretty scary hair situations. Luckily, I’ve got you covered with a few simple hairstyles that will help you rock that second (or third or fourth) day hair.
This hairstyle is super easy and gorgeous – basically an upgrade to your usual ponytail. All you have to do is gather your hair into a low ponytail and secure it. Then, invert it into a topsy tail. Wrap a small piece of hair around the elastic and you’re good to go. This hairstyle is perfect for work or class!
This hairstyle might look difficult, but I promise you, it’s super easy. Just Dutch braid you hair down to the nape of your neck and secure with an elastic. Pull gently at each strand of the braid to make it look full. Gather the rest of your hair in a low bun, and you’ve got a quick and easy hairstyle that you’ll love.
This is probably the simplest hairstyle of them all, and perfect for when you want to show off the beachy texture of your second day hair. Gather the top half of your hair to the crown of your head and form a ponytail, but don’t pull it all the way through. Wrap a piece of hair around the elastic to give it a more polished look. This hairstyle gives off that effortlessly cool vibe and takes practically a minute. It’s perfect for those weekend errands you really don’t want to get ready for.
I know your hair might not look perfect the second day, but that’s no reason not to rock it. Second day hair is really effortless looking and has a really nice texture. If it’s not exactly what you like, throwing in a texturizing spray really helps. My favorite is the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. Spray some dry shampoo or throw on a hat to conceal greasy roots, and you’re ready to rock your second day hair like a pro.
