Dirty Hair, Don’t Care
There’s no getting around it.
It’s getting to the time of year where it’s just kind of hard to care.
It’s cold. You’re tired. Getting out of bed and putting on pant is nearly impossible; how are you supposed to muster the energy and creative strength to deal with the mop of hair on your head?
Luckily, our motto here at rue21 is WE NEVER STAND STILL! So while you’re warm in your bed binge watching season three of Grey’s Anatomy (for the fifth time) we’re coming up with adorable ways to do your hair in the A.M. The best part? These styles will work for any type of hair— long or short, dirty or clean. You can roll out of bed, throw on your look of the week, maybe brush your teeth if you’re into that, and go!
The Bun Braid
You knew this was coming. Yeah, we know you know to braid your hair when it’s dirty. But sometimes a simple braid doesn’t pan out when your hair is that greasy. Stop! Don’t wash your hair. Start by pulling your hair half up and securing it with bobby pins. Then, starting where the bobby pins are placed, French braid your hair. Then, taking the tail of the braid, tuck it under and pin using a cris cross pattern with bobby pins. Secure the braid as necessary with bobby pins and gently pull your hair so you have a loose, fun braided bun!
Deep Side Part
Grease tends to form where you hair normally parts, so just do some moving around! Take your part to the other side of your head and create a deep side part. Comb to create smoothness, add a thin headband, and arrange in a low pony at the nape of your neck for a sleek look. After all, you can only dry shampoo so many times.
Updated Rag Rolls
We’re bringing the 40’s into 2017! First, take step one from look two (create a side part on the opposite side of your regular part). Then, take that section of hair, roll it, and pin it back just above your ear. Repeat this on the other side. The section of hair should be more significant on one side than the other. Top off this vintage look with some red lipstick and you’re ready to take on the world!
