Okay, so you've hit the snooze button as many times as you possibly could. Now that you're finally out of bed and staring into the mirror, you realize that you need to wash your hair but you just don't have time. Can you possibly leave your house without washing your hair and still look the picture of perfection? In a word--Yes!
In fact, many styles actually look better with day-old washed hair. The key to getting it right lies in knowing a few tips and tricks that'll let you get away with unwashed hair without looking like an oil slick has landed on your head. Here are a few stylish solutions for unwashed hair:
- Twist in the Mane--If you have should-length hair, you can pin it up in a scruffy--yet trendy--twist. Simply comb your hair back with your fingers and twist it until it doubles itself. Keep it in place with a bigger clip or many small ones. Try and use clips that have a little sparkle or that are slightly ornamental to draw attention away from your hair.
- Brush and Go--Another easy option is to tie your hair into a ponytail. Not only will it keep your hair in place but it's also very "now," with celebrities sporting them even on the red carpet. Start by choosing a brush that has natural bristles. Brushing your hair will distribute the oil evenly from root to tip. Scrape your hair back and secure with a band at the nape of your neck.
- Slick Chic--If you have short hair, take a small dollop of gel on your palms and spread it evenly through your hair and slick back. This will give your hair a glossy look. For a neat, professional look, simply tuck your hair behind your ears (if you have short hair) or tie it into a low bun if you have longer hair.
