5 Easy Hairstyles
For Your Dirty Hair

Admit it: We don’t always have the time to wash our hair. To keep your locks looking chic and stylish, get in on our dirty little secrets for the perfect hairstyles for dirty hair.
1

Keep it sexy

After not washing your hair for a day or two, it's at its prime for holding hairstyles. Go for a tousled wave to get your hair looking super-sexy.

  • Spray dry shampoo (Clean Freak Dry Shampoo, $6) onto your roots and slightly tease.
  • Spritz a little sea-salt spray (Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, $25) onto your hair.
  • Take a curling wand and loosely curl 2-inch sections of your hair.

Try a loose side braid for a quick, pretty look.

  • Gather all of your hair to one side and loosely braid your hair.
  • Tip: Braid your hair with day-old curled hair for more texture.
  • Alternative look: Instead of a classic braid, take a little extra time and create an exotic fishtail braid.

If your hair is already dirty, why not make it look like it was on purpose?

  • Gather hair to lower back of head. Shake out loose strands and shorter layers for a carefree look.

  • Use bobby pins to secure hair.
