 5 hair hacks to look presentable in a jiffy for a last-minute zoom call

A last-minute intimation about video conferencing can make anyone anxious. Since everyone is working from home, chances are, we’re doing so in our pyjamas and a messy bun. Unless you’ve been informed in advance, there’s no way your hair looks even remotely presentable. Fortunately, there are some quick hair hacks that can freshen up your look instantly. Check ‘em out!


Embrace the frizz


Frizzy haired girls, we bear good news. The frizzy look is in, with hairstylists even faking frizzy flyaways with a spritz of hairspray. Pull your hair into a bun and gently pull out a few face-framing tendrils from near your ears and temples for an effortlessly chic look.


Prop up your droopy pony


Prop up your sad-looking pony with a couple of bobby pins. Start by tying a high pony. Once done, flip your head down and pin 2-3 pins under the base of the pony, through the hair tie. Flip your head back up and hide the pins by fluffing your pony.


Perk up flat hair


Having your hair in one position for long hours can flatten the roots and steal its natural bounce. For a last-minute perk up, use this hack to add volume to your flat hair without emptying a whole can of hairspray.

With a detailer brush, gather all your hair to one side in a deep side-part. Spray some volumizing spray or the TIGI Bed Head Oh Bee Hive Matte Dry Shampoo on the part and massage with your fingers. Do the same for the other side and brush your hair once done. Your mane will look considerably fuller and jazzed up in minutes!


Create easy, flat-iron waves


There are a couple of ways to create instant easy waves with a straightener. You can either twist it out or run the flat iron on braided strands. Make sure to spritz your hair with a heat protectant spray before using the flat iron!




Nothing will hide your messy hair better than some pretty hair accessories! Grab a headscarf to hide greasy roots or use a bandana to tie your ponytail; there are many options. You can also tame frizzy and unruly baby hair with cute pins as a quick fix!
