5 Fun Hair Hacks When You Just Can’t Deal with Your Hair

Sleeping in never looked so good.

Do you ever have one of those days when you just can’t deal with your hair? While we love testing out the latest hair trends and colors, sometimes exhaustion just wins out where we don’t have enough time to get ready and contort our hair into the latest/greatest/coolest style. Thankfully, there are tons of fun hair hacks out there that can help us all look put together when you just aren’t feeling like dealing. So read up on these fun hair hacks, pick a fave (and a back-up!) and set that alarm for an extra 10 minutes.

5 Fun Hair Hacks We Swear By

1. Sleek Ponytail

Let’s just get this one out of the way, shall we? Look, we love sporting the ponytail for everything from getting our ‘sweat on’ to a night out with the girls, and, really, what’s not to love? It’s easy, looks clean and will have you out of the house in less in minutes. This fun hair hack ponytail includes just two little tricks. One, you are adding some serum, like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Serum, to your hair to create shine and sleekness. Two, you are using your own hair to wrap around your pony. And when combined together, this look is beyond polished where no one has to be the wiser that it only took you a few minutes to create.

2. Bobby Pin Hairstyles

After a rough morning, the only energy you might have is making coffee and searching for those bobby pins to pin your hair back. For a stylish option, create a swooping bang and then line up your bobby pins in a tight row. This unexpected look gives the illusion of looking seriously stylish all thanks to the stacking effect. Oh, and we have even more bobby pin hairstyles that you’ve got to check out so you can mix up this idea every now and again.


3. Deep Part

Flip out, on your hair that is, with this fun hair hack.  This is one of our favorite mad-dash hairstyle ideas where you literally just have to brush your hair to the opposite side where you normally wear your hair. Then spritz it with some hairspray, like the TRESemme TRES TWO Extra Hold Spray, and go!

And then there are those days when only a hat will work. That’s totally cool! There are tons of stylish hats out there, and modern work environments that make this look acceptable. And if all else fails, blame your fashion needs on the weather.

5. Slicked Back

We love the slicked back hair look, and really wants not to love. It combines the ’80s power women with a modern day twist. To achieve, apply some gel, like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Hold Gel, to your damp or dry hair. Work it towards the front and then use your hands to smooth it down. Use a brush to ensure that the product is evenly distributed.
