I am a big fan of hairstyles that I can rely on when I don't have much time to get ready - which, most commonly for me, is in the morning when I should have definitely washed my hair, but didn't (I am often the victim of my snooze button!).
So, I've put together a few hair tutorials showing you what I do when I'm trying to hide mucky hair! Here's the first one, and my very favourite thing to do on a bad hair day - just stick a scarf round it!
For this I used a vintage silk scarf that I found in a charity shop. You want a scarf that is long enough to wrap around your head (with enough left to easily tie a knot). My hair is dirty at the roots and just feels a bit mucky and uncomfortable down, so with this look I just want to get it out of my way.
Start by putting your hair up in a ponytail, then twisting it into a messy bun, securing it with kirby grips.
Take your scarf and fold it into a long strip, about 3 inches wide. Then wrap it round your head, and tie it into a knot on top of your head - don't worry about doing the bow yet!
Then make sure you're happy with the position of the scarf round your head, and use a few kirby grips to secure it at the sides and back. Now it'll be totally secure, and you can tie the scarf ends into a bow. If the scarf is longer than the one I'm using, just tuck the ends under the sides of the scarf, and adjust your kirby grips to secure this too.
And that's it! It's so easy to do, and instantly hides messy hair.
