There are some days when we just don’t have the time to wash our hair, and then there are those days when we just can’t be bothered to wash it. For those hurried days and the lazy ones, we have put together some ideas that could leave you looking like you had a hairstylist do your hair, when five minutes and some hair spray is all you spent on doing up your hair.

Luckily for you, there are hairstyles that look good only on the second or third day of washing your hair. All you need are a few key products to help you achieve the look.

So arm yourself with:
A hair spray
A few bobby pins
A hair tie/band
Top knot
 

Top knot

Spray some hair spray and comb your hair back with your fingers. It creates a little texture to your hair. Gather the hair in a high ponytail and secure it with an elastic band. Wrap the loose end of the ponytail around the elastic and secure the ends with bobby pins. Pull out a few strands and fluff up the bun to give it a messy look. You could also add a colourful fabric head band to cover up the greasy hair in the front. Knotted head bands are having a moment right now, and you could try one of those!
