Easy Ways to Style Noticeably Unwashed Hair

Your current hair status is way beyond being saved by dry shampoo, but what do you do when there's no time for a shower?

We've got you covered. Below are five cute hairstyles to rock when your hair is (noticeably) unwashed.

The Poof and Bun

To hide your greasy roots, you have to add some lift. For THIS style, grab the top part of your mane and either tease it or put it up with some Bobby Pins and put the rest in a nice tight bun. Super chic and sophisticated and no oil!

Headscarf Roll

There's nothing like a good headscarf to hide your unwashed hair. Unroll the accessory and start with it about one inch from the bottom of your hair. Roll your hair under until it is all tucked in and tie it together at the top of your head. THIS look is easy and classic.

Rope Braids and Bun

Braids are your best friend when you have dirty hair. And this look will definitely hide all of your hair's excess oil. The dirtier your hair, the better the braid!

Dramatic High Pony

It may be called a dramatic high pony, but there's nothing dramatic about it when you wake up late with no time to shower. Get THIS look by teasing the top part of your hair. Then gather all your locks in your hands and make a high ponytail. Tighten the pony and loosen the top part of your hair with your fingers to give it the poofy look.
