Amidst the usual morning chaos, who has the time or energy to wash their hair everyday? Whether reaching for lashings of dry shampoo or trying a sleek updo, I’m a big fan of clever haircare cheats. Norris Ogario, Creative Director and co-founder of Ogario London, has some top hair tips for keeping your style when skipping a wash.
A head scarf or band pulls hair off the face, hiding grease and making you look more ‘dressed’. Working on all lengths, this is a great distraction for less than perfect tresses.
Slick it back
Hide any hair woes by slicking your hair back into a high ponytail using wax, gel or serum to keep the look smooth and super sleek.
Nothing rocks bed head like a messy bun. Pull your hair into a ponytail on the top of your head and twist loosely into a bun, securing in place with a hair-band. The more tousled the better, so don’t over-think it- you can even tease some extra tendrils of hair loose.
The roots of hair are a guaranteed grease giveaway, so hide them with a half ponytail. Pull the entire top panel of your hair into a ponytail at the back of the head and opt for a sleek finish by brushing it all into place. Or, you can add volume pushing the ponytail forward to create a slight quiff, then twist the half pony into place at the back.
Twisting hair into a plait can hide a multitude of hair sins. Plaits are so versatile; create small plaits on the side of your head or twist your plait into a bun. The possibilities are endless.
And when you do refresh those locks, reach for the luxe Ogario London line. Ogario’s amazing Restore & Shine Hair Masque keeps my previously untamed mane in soft, comb-able condition for days at a time.
