Time-saving hairstyles

In the present hot weather you may well be sweating it out while commuting to work, going to the gym, or even staying at home. The increased levels of sweat might make you feel like washing your hair every day, but this can be a mistake. It strips out the oil, and no matter how much conditioner you slather on, it actually dries it out. 

A spritz of dry shampoo can do wonders for greasy hair, but sometimes you may feel you have to do something with it. So, let the grease do the work and try these super-easy hairstyles: 

High half-up, half-down

High half-up, half-down: This slicked-back style looks super-chic and is an adapted version of the high ponytail and takes away the worry of loose stragglers underneath. Just let the lower half length of hair run loose and free.


Bunches: These are one of the easiest ways to get your second-day hair on lockdown. You know the drill: part your hair and either plait the two sections or leave them flowing.


Throw-up: Blast your hair with a texturising spray, rub your fingers through the ends, and then literally shove it up before tying with a bobble. 

Half-up, half-down

Half-up, half-down: This style is super-simple and will make you look pretty.

The classic pony

The classic pony: This timeless style is perfect for second-day hair.


Tousled: It’s hard to tousle freshly washed hair as it can be too soft and limp. The waves just fall out despite a generous spritz of hairspray, while hair that is a little bit greasy is ideal to settle and get a bit tousled.


Chignon: Second-day hair allows you to get a simple chignon with a little extra height in the crown as the hair will be slightly heavier and less soft and fly-away.

Plaited ponytail

Plaited ponytail: Plait your hair and make sure you ruffle your fingers over the finished braid.

Slick back

Slick back: Slicked-back hair sounds perfect, but too much product can make the hair saturated and flat.

Top knot

Top knot: Comb the hair into a ponytail and wrap around.
