It's 2016, which means a little thing called dry shampoo exists. But when you skip actually washing your hair, creating a put-together style becomes all the more crucial. And let's face it – we've all been there. That's why Get The Look has gathered 4 hair styles from beauty blogger Sazan Hendrix, who offers up different dry styling ideas for second (or third) day hair.
In addition to being super chic, masterful ways of masking dirty (maybe even borderline greasy) hair, every style Hendrix demonstrates is also incredibly quick and easy to re-create. Not one requires more than five minutes! So arm yourself with a couple of bobby pins, hair elastics and plenty of dry shampoo and check out these 4 dirty hair styles.
HAIRSTYLING: 4 WAYS TO STYLE DIRTY HAIR
LOW MESSY BUN
Start off by applying a dry shampoo onto the oily areas of your hair. Next, use a brush to brush your hair back in one direction, then pin the top half up using bobby pins. If your hair isn't too dirty, you can rock a half-up, half-down style, but if you're dealing with third day hair, keep going with this tutorial!
Take the bottom half of hair that's left down on your shoulders and pull it up into a low bun. Secure with an elastic. Pull a few strands of hair out from around your face, then pin a small section of your bangs back to make sure the top half of your hair stays put. You can pull it out and upwards slightly to create a mini poof.
THE CLEAN BUN
Rather than brushing your hair backwards, start this style by parting your hair down the middle (or off to one side – depending on how you like your part), then brush it from root to tip. Next, while maintaining your part, pull your hair back as if you were about to put it into a ponytail, but instead of looping it through, leave a small section of hair out of the elastic, then wrap it around the base of the bun to cover the hair tie. Secure with bobby pins, then pull out some of the hair at the crown of your head and in the bun to create a little extra volume.
If you have bangs, you can leave them out around your face. But if they're feeling a little extra dirty, twist them and pull them back into your hair.
THE HALF UP HALO
For this style, braid a handful of hair behind your ears on both sides of your head. The braid should begin at ear level and work its way down to your tips. Use your fingers to pull the braid apart gently, then tie the two braids together at the back of your head. Lock in the look with a few bobby pins.
THE BRAIDED BUN
Using a brush, create a sleek high ponytail on top of your head. Split the hair within the ponytail into two sections and braid each section straight down on both sides. Once you've braided both sections of hair, go back and pull the braid apart for a looser look. Grab one section (or braid) and wrap it around itself creating a bun. Secure it with bobby pins, then take the second section and wrap it around the first to create a large, voluminous bun.
