For the past three years, I've had to wake up every morning at 4am for work. I've become the queen of making bad-hair-days into good-hair-days!
I love this video from BuzzFeed, detailing some of the best ways to make bad hair good again, and below are a few of my personal favorite ideas...
1. I'm a big fan of barrettes. I like the sturdy ones from J. Crew that you can find here. If my hair got kinked overnight (I shower at night, before bed) in the morning I can pull my hair into a ponytail but clip it with a barrette instead of using a hair tie. Looks a little more polished for work but its so easy!
2. Dry shampoo! Again, I shower at night. Sometimes in the morning my roots are a little oily. I use Suave Dry Shampoo... flip your hair upside down, spray lightly on the roots, and rub it in. It sprays on white and you rub until the color is gone.
3. For beach waves without the beach, I'll wash my hair at night, blow dry just the roots (with my head upside down), and then french braid my hair. When you're done braiding, don't tie it off! twist the whole braid into a low bun, then use bobby pins to secure to your head. Hairspray before bed! In the morning, just gently undo the braid and use some more hairspray.
