Unwashed Hair Can Be Gorgeous – 7 Ultracool Ways To Style It! August 14, 2015

Skipping a wash happens with almost all of us once a while. The reason might be you slept for a little longer or you got up with a hope of extending your good hair day!

No matter what the reason is, don’t panic if your unwashed hair is looking a bit worse than expected! A little grease can go a long way when it comes to holding a hairstyle.

Here are 8 super quick ways to style your unwashed hair!

1. Twisty Flip Braid:

This twisty bun looks super cool for girls with medium or long hair, and if your hair is super dirty, then it’s perfect because the texture holds it perfectly.

All you need are U-pins, some rubber bands, and a paddle brush. Gather your hair at the back and tie a ponytail. Make a small little hole in the middle and flip the ponytail inside that hole. Quickly make a simple braid or a fishtail braid and again push that inside the same hole. Secure with pins. Ta-da! You’re done!

2. Fishtail Braids:

Fishtail braids are basically made for dirty hair. You will just need a hair tie and both your hands. Once you get the hang of a fishtail braid, its super easy and fast.

Divide your hair into sections, and pick a thin strand of hair out of the left section and pull it over to the inside of the right section. Repeat the same on the right side and keep on alternating till you reach the bottom of your braid. Tie it off with an elastic band.

Hide the fact that you have overslept with a glamorous top donut bun. All you need is a donut bun, a tail comb, and some rubber bands.

Gather your hair together using a tail comb, secure it with a rubber band, and twist it into a bun. Apply serum to give a finishing touch.

It’s time to turn your bed-head into charming beachy waves. The messier, the better!
Separate your hair into sections, and apply mousse from the roots till the shaft until your hair is slightly damp. Tease up towards the roots with a bristle brush. After teasing, apply some more mousse on your fingers and scrunch – you’re ready to go!

6. Curly Buns:

Use gel to smooth down the frizz, part your hair into two sections, and then twirl each section into a bun. Secure each of them with bobby pins and a spritz of flexible hairspray.
