We all look great on Monday morning after spending Sunday night washing, drying and styling our hair. But by Wednesday, our locks are falling a bit limp — and no amount of dry shampoo will help. We don’t always have time for a fresh blowout and sometimes we tire of top knots.
What’s a girl to do when her several-day stale ‘do goes limp or gets frazzled? Take a cue from the French and make that days-old hair wilder. Scrunch in some texturizing spray for some cool-girl beauty waves, or try experimenting with fun accessories. Pins, scarves and barrettes are a great way to add a bit of flair to your lackluster locks. Braids are another option, since slightly dirty hair has great texture, allowing it to hold the style like a champion.
Behold: 14 easy tutorials and hairstyles for dirty hair that not only make third- or fourth-day hair look great, but actually work better on slightly lived-in locks.
