These 10 hairstyles have got you covered to hide those tired locks. From cute clips to a myriad of braids, there’s sure to be a style here that will turn your bad hair day into a cute hair day!
1. Messy Bun
Use what you’ve got, and transform bed-head into a bun that’s messy, but cute. On your worst of days, a messy bun is always a life saver for when you don’t have the time to tame your unruly locks. Throw your hair into a bun with a cute hair tie or scrunchie, and you’ve got yourself a gorgeous hairdo!
2. High Pony
Now this is a look that can be achieved within three seconds if you wanted it to, which makes this the perfect hairstyle to cover up a bad hair day! Throwing your hair up high makes you look put together, like you’re ready to face the day with confidence. To make this look a little more elegant, take a piece of your pony and wrap it around the base where the hair tie is. Super cute and fast!
3. Hair Clips
There’s really nothing a cute hair clip, or two, can’t fix. Clip back your bad hair day and make it into a good one that’s a throw back to your younger years! Luckily, there are so many adorable hair clips that you could match with any outfit and for any occasion. So no matter what your day holds, there’s a hair clip to help.
4. Hair Scarf
If you think you’re hair just needs something extra to make it shine a little more, then reach for a hair scarf, one of the cutest ways to hide a bad hair day. With a colourful, silky scarf tied around your locks, no one’s going to notice that you totally haven’t brushed your hair today. Throw your hair into a bun and wrap a scarf around it to throw a little colour into your day!
5. French Braid
What’s more classic than hiding a bad hair day in a gorgeous french braid? Not only is this hairstyle so beautiful, but it’s also practical in keeping the hair out of your face for your busy day ahead. If you’re a practiced braider, then this look will take you no more than two minutes, seven minutes tops if you’ve never done one (thank you tutorials!).
6. Claw Clip
The ol’ claw clip has been around for a while, but a lot of people don’t know how easy they are to help throw your hair up into a look that’s cute and hide’s a messy head of hair! There are a ton of styles you can do with this clip, but a classic style is to twist your hair into a bun at the base of your neck, and simply close the clip around the bun. That’s it!
7. Space Buns
Thanks to the invention of space buns, a bad hair day no longer exists now that you have this super cute look in your repertoire. Make it look like you’re having the greatest hair day of your life with this look that requires minimal effort with a gorgeous pay off. This look also makes any outfit choice look fresh and fun!
8. Twisty Half-Up Half-Down
This is another look that takes so very little effort but creates a look that is so adorable. While the classic half-up half-down look is a winner, take it to the next level of stunning by twisting the tied end of your hair in between the two sides. Twist it however many times you like until the two sides are beautifully curled.
9. Fishtail Braid
This isn’t like a regular braid, this is a cool braid (Mean Girls, anyone?). The fishtail braid is incredibly cute and will definitely hide your bad hair day between layers of carefully braided and twisted hair. This look may take a few more minutes to create, especially if you have longer hair, but believe me, it’s so worth the effort and isn’t that hard to get a hang of.
10. Braided Pigtails
Who can resist a girl in pigtails? Braided pigtails are making a major comeback in today’s trends from when we were youngsters, running around the backyard, pigtails flying in the wind. Luckily, this hairstyle looks gorgeous on absolutely anyone of any age, so this is definitely a hairstyle to create when you’re having a bad hair day!
