It doesn’t matter what clothes you are wearing, the shade of lip gloss, or if you have brand new shoes on, if you are having a bad hair day, nothing helps. Women want to ensure their hair looks healthy, full of volume, and chic. We spend a great deal of time styling for it to look natural and effortless. Still, it’s unrealistic to spend our whole morning getting our tresses to look their best. This is why you need to rely on tried and true hacks that will make you look like you just stepped out of the salon.
Use a dryer sheet and stick it through the hairbrush.
Dryer sheets prevent static on clothes, neutralizing the electricity build up. You can apply this to static hair as well. Brush your hair with the sheet stuck to the brush and see your hair get rid of all the frizz and static.
Pull your hair over and braid it from the front instead of the back.
Depending on the length of your hair, you can begin braiding from the nose or the chin. Make sure you leave enough room to pull the hair back for a cool backwards braid.

Colouring your hair can be expensive not to mention it can get damaged.
Visit your local craft or art store and pick up different shades of non-oil paints. Wet the hair and rub the paint on, use a hot hair iron to set the colour in.

Go vintage and give yourself a side roll do.
Place bobby pins diagonally from ear to ear. Grab the ends of the hair and roll them up until you reach the pins. Secure the hair in by applying more pins in.
The intricate and complex hair bun.
Grab the middle part of your hair and put it in a pony tail. Wrap it around to make it into a bun. Use the remaining hair to make five more ponytails, tucking them all to the main, middle one. Wrap the ends around the bun.

No time to shampoo, don’t worry about it.
Apply dry shampoo on the root, using your hands to rub it in, use a comb or brush to make sure the powder settles in. The powder will not only absorb the excess oil, it will also work as a styling product.
