What's Your Go-To Style When You're Having Hair Troubles?

What's Your Go-To Style When You're Having Hair Troubles?

According to a study, those who have bad hair days suffer from lower self-esteem than those who feel good about their hair. The kicker of it all is that males seem to be even more affected than females — how about that?

When my hair is acting up, I usually opt for a ponytail and will often try out a more dramatic makeup look to compensate. It looks like Scarlett Johansson covers her hair with a beret, while Britney Spears favors a disheveled mish-mosh of an updo. What's your go-to style when your hair won't cooperate?

I usually just throw it up in a messy bun or Ill pull all my hair to one side of my head and braid it

A pulled back twist, but not totally messy. Just a bit undone.

I don't know if it's even considered a bun, but yeah I either pull it back into a low ponytail or do this twirl thing that's a pseudo-bun I guess...

Ugh. Britney. Get some good extensions for a change. I normally go for a bun or ponytail when my hair acts up. I need to get some cute hats and scarves. I love that look.

Britney's bad hair day's makes my bad hair days look stunning. I also have longer hair and am overdoing the ponytail thing it's just too easy.

I almost always put it back in a Braid when it's long. I just had it cut to stop myself from being such a slacker. Now it's a bun or a messy bun. Ponytails hurt my head.

My hair is wavy to curly and sometimes can get a bit unruly. When i don't have time to straighten it, i just pick it up in a nice bun.

If i'm having a really bad hair day and i know i won't need to take off the hat, then i go with a beret/beanie. But if it's not that bad i go for a messy updo or sorts and hair band for extra control

I take it back, twist it and stick a clip on it :P

i'm with syako, again, on the short hair thing! hats are the way to go! although i don't go that route too often since it's really easy to wet my hair down and start from scratch!

My hair is too short to pull back, so I'll use a couple barrettes.

A NEAT ponytail. Not Britney-style.

I love a sleek bun as it looks very classic and keeps messy hair out of the way.If the look is too harsh, try a loose tendril near your forehead curled loosely with a blast of quick heat from a curling iron.

Curly or straight a pony is my go to.

Beret in winter, messy updo otherwise.

all the above!

I do all of them. Depends on just how bad the hair day is.

I like to do a side part with a tight, low chignon. It always looks nice, plus keeps my hair out of my face. My hair is so long that even when in a ponytail, it gets in the way, plus a high bun ends up hurting my head because its so heavy. Ah, the hazards of long hair. :)
