Hair Hacks Feature

Have you ever had a “blah” morning where you just could not be bothered styling your lovely locks? These lazy mornings happen to the best of us. When you just cannot seem to muster up the will to spend more than five minutes on your hairdo, these five hair hacks will definitely come in handy!

Greasy Hair Woes

Dry shampoo is your savior when your hair is greasy and ghastly. If you do not have any on hand, talcum powder works equally well (minus the hole in your wallet). For the best results, apply it the night before so that it can work its magic on your tresses while you sleep.

Time For A Turban

Turbans are one of the hottest trends right now and have been sported by celebrities like Eva Mendes and Kourtney Kardashian, among others. When you cannot seem to pull your hair into something that resembles a sophisticated hairstyle, simply wrap it up into a turban for an effortlessly chic look. Voila!

Casual Chic Braid

Unwashed hair? Never fear, glamdolls! Dirty hair is actually a great foundation for all sorts of braids. If you are stretched for time, the half-done braid is exactly what you need. Loosely plait your hair along your crown and towards the nape of your neck. Instead of securing it with a hair tie, leave it undone for an easy breezy vibe.

Fit For A Princess

When it comes to lackluster mornings or terrible bad-hair-days, headbands are you best friend. The Princess Roll is easily one of the most stylish dos and can be achieved in less than five minutes. Start by placing an elastic headband around the crown of your head. Now, take small sections of hair from the right side and wrap them around the band as you would wrap a ribbon around a pen. Continue wrapping until you have tucked all your hair in and give your mane a blast of hairspray to set the look.

Spice Up Your Ponytail

Ponytails are undoubtedly one of the most versatile hairstyles. The next time you are feeling lazy but need to look absolutely fabulous, spice up the ordinary look by giving it a side braid and then sweeping the rest of the hair into a ponytail. Add some extra bounce to your ponytail by boosting it with two upward facing bobby pins placed through your elastic.
