Bad hair days: Ah, they happen to the best of us. Whether it’s the weather that’s making your hair look not its best or your new haircut didn’t exactly turn out the way you thought it would, bad hair days are inevitable sometimes. And of course, when you wake up and are unhappy with the way your hair looks, it can put a damper on your entire day. Ugh. But that doesn’t mean you have to hide under the covers. Before you reach for that oversized hat in hopes of going incognito for the day, try one of these four hair hacks to salvage a bad hair day—no one has to know you’re not totally in love with your mane at the moment!  

Bad Hair Day Hack #1: Rock a Double Ponytail

In the case of a bad hair day, two ponytails is better than one! This style is super-chic and easy to create.  

What you’ll need:

Hair ties

L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Gather the hair above your ears to create a half ponytail and tie it up with a hair elastic.

Step 2: Take the first ponytail you just created and flip it forward to the top of your head so you can get it out of the way.

Step 3: Create the second ponytail using the remaining bottom section of hair. Make sure to secure the second ponytail directly below the base of the first ponytail so that it’s hidden from plain sight. Spritz on a little hairspray, like the L'Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold, to finish off the style. See, it’s that easy!

Bad Hair Day Hack #2: Try a Teased Bun

When you’re having a bad hair day, we bet that the last thing you want to do is wear your hair down. Well, you can’t go wrong with putting your hair into a teased bun. Plus, this hairstyle is always on trend.

What you’ll need:

Hair tie

L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray

Teasing brush

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Gather your hair into a high ponytail and use a hair tie to secure it.

Step 2: Spray one-inch sections of your ponytail with a little bit of hairspray, like the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.

Step 3: Tease each section you sprayed with a teasing brush.

Step 4: Wrap the ponytail into a bun and secure it in place with a few bobby pins.

Step 5: Spray your bun with some hairspray and you’re good to go.

Bad Hair Day Hack #3: Twist Your Hair into a Dutch Crown Braid

The good news is, messy hair is totally in—so use your bad hair day to your advantage by donning a Dutch crown braid.

What you’ll need:

Bobby pins

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Create two Dutch braids. Use an underhand braiding technique to create a Dutch braid on each side of your head.

Step 2: Pin the braids to the opposite side. Cross them over the nape of your neck and secure them with a few bobby pins. Two steps and that’s it! 

Bad Hair Day Hack #4: When All Else Fails, Put on a Headband

If you’re in a rush to get out the door or just don’t feel like any style is doing it for you, throw on a giant headband, which will hide frizz or any hairs that are out of place. Whether you go for a solid-colored headband or one that’s bedazzled, there are plenty of options out there for you to choose from. And remember: We all have bad hair days from time to time, so there’s no reason to get too upset. We think your hair looks beautiful all the time!
