5 Of The Best Hairstyles For Second Day Hair

Frizzy, flat or just not looking as fresh as it could be; you can beat a BHD with these five second day hair solutions.

1.Messy bun

Hair Bun

The ultimate fix for frizzy hair, this gorge hairstyle takes only five minutes, and is done in five easy steps. Simply put your hair in a high ponytail, section and tease with a backcombing brush, wrap the hair around itself and secure with with a few bobby pins. Lastly, spritz liberally with hairspray, and you’re done.

2.Braided crown


Love to look a little undone? This boho do is a great half up, half down style, for gals who want to keep it casual. Firstly, part your hair down the middle, gather a large section of hair to one side, and loosely braid it. Next, secure it with a small bobbin, and repeat on the other side.

This is where it gets tricky: you’ll need to cross the first braid behind your head so that it’s placed near the nape of the neck, then pin it in place, making sure that the tail isn’t showing. Confused? Hit up A Cup Of Jo for the full step by step in pictures.

This style can dress up an outfit, in eight easy steps. Start by separating a number of thick strands from the top of your head and back comb them to add volume. Next, pull the hair down into a low ponytail, fluff up the back combed hair and keep it in place with a bobby pin.
