It happens to the best of us. You hit snooze, put off washing your hair one more day and end up with greasy AF hair. Sure, hat hair is a runway trend this season but greasy hair looks far from glamourous when there’s no ramp and fancy outfits to team it with (sigh).
Greasy hair struggles are real but there are some clever hairstyles that can save the day and help you hide dirty roots. One such hairstyle is half-bun or hun which is also easy and looks oh-so-cute. Throw your greasy strands in a half bun every time you don’t feel like washing your locks.
We have five half bun hairstyles that you can rock with greasy hair.
Bun with cornrow braids
Braids are a great (read: sneaky) way to camouflage those greasy roots. Style the front section of your hair in a couple of cornrow braids and pull them in a bun at the back. Not only does this hairstyle counter flat, oily hair but also looks edgy and totally badass.
Pull your hair in a sleek and sexy half bun for when you’ve got a glam event on the cards but no time to wash your mane. Tease hair from the crown to create a poufy texture. Make a half bun for yourself and style the rest of your hair in soft curls. Finish with a spritz of hairspray to keep greasy baby hair and flyaways in check.
Messy and chic
Going for a movie date with bae? Or maybe drinks with your girlfriend? Pull off this casual half bun hairstyle when they call you at the eleventh hour, leaving you with no time to wash your hair. Simply divide your hair into two sections, twist the upper half and fasten it in a messy bun. Let some wisps from the sides and front loose to look cute-as-can-be.
For those who have a 12-inch mane, a half bun is a godsend hairdo to hide unwashed roots. And, before you think your short strands won’t hold the hun, here is what you can do. Pull the upper half of your hair in a high ponytail and wrap it in a bun. It’s the easiest and quickest way to cover dirty roots.
Fake a good hair day by styling your hair in dainty braids and equally stunning half-bun. Create a centre parting and braid both sections from above the ear along the back of the head. Wrap the two braided sections in a bun. This hairstyle is perfect for when you’ve got to flaunt Indian outfits or just feel like styling your third-day hair.
