Some mornings, there just isn't time to wash and blowdry your hair, which means dealing with dirty roots instead. The good news is unwashed hair has more texture than freshly shampooed locks, and it works really well with all kinds of braids and updos. To inspire your next day two hairstyle, we've selected ten easy looks for you to explore.
1. Braided headband
A day or two after washing your hair, you might find it has a lot of Blake Lively-esque movement through the lengths, but the roots are a little flat. When this happens, a braided headband makes the best of it by hiding the roots and showcasing the rest of your hair.
Before styling, mist your roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray. The dry shampoo formula absorbs excess oil and lifts the hair at the root.
2. Braided ponytail
To make the most of the matte texture, try a braided ponytail. This hairstyle keeps greasy roots under wraps and creates a gorgeous focal point with the voluminous braid.
To increase the volume of your braid, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray and tease the hair a little before loosely braiding it.
3. Sleek ponytail
Excess oil at the root is a great excuse for a sleek hairstyle, and a low pony is probably the easiest! The smooth, flyaway-free finish creates a polished look that you can wear absolutely anywhere.
Add shine and eliminate frizz with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.
4. Half-up middle part
With a little dry shampoo to refresh your roots, this half-up hairstyle will make your mane look as good as new! The well-defined middle part creates a neat focal point, giving the look a pulled-together finish.
Use a tail comb to part your hair for the most accurate results.
5. Low bun updo
You just can't go wrong with a low bun. It's a classic day two look, and you can wear it in so many different ways, including braided, sleek and messy.
Team your bun with an understated headband for an on-trend, practical hairstyle that'll hide your roots.
6. Tousled braid
Textured hairstyles are one of the biggest beauty trends this season, and a tousled braid is a great way to rock the look with unwashed hair.
Spritz dry hair with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and use a 1" curling iron to create plenty of movement before braiding.
7. Slicked back hair
The best place to hide something is often in plain sight, and the same goes for dirty roots! A slicked back hairstyle will take greasy locks and turn them into a cool, statement 'do with hardly any effort.
Use a wide-tooth comb to slick your hair back with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel. Massage the roots afterward to get some extra height.
8. Half-up knot
When you don't want to sacrifice the gorgeous natural movement in the lengths and ends of your hair to a topknot, try a half-up knot instead. You can style it messy, sleek, voluminous, braided... it's totally (half) up to you!
Use Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to tame any flyaways and add shine.
9. Twisted chignon updo
For shorter hairstyles, a twisted chignon updo is a great hairstyle for in between days. It looks really intricate, but it's actually really easy to style. All you need to do is twist and pin individual pieces of hair at the back until it's all up.
Spray your bobby pins with dry shampoo for extra grip.
10. Braided crown
A braided crown updo deals with your roots in the prettiest way possible with plenty of detail and a chic bohemian finish. This hairstyle basically turns your mane into a lovely headband accessory that keeps your locks up and under control.
Finish with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to eliminate flyaways and prevent frizz.
