7 Messy Hairstyles Every Girl Can Rock

7 Messy Hairstyles Every Girl Can Rock

These messy hairstyles will save you from a bad hair day.

There's nothing worst than experiencing a bad hair day, (which I feel like is every day with my tame of curls), or trying to style your hair in a cute way only to have it become one major flop. I have naturally curly hair, and it's a pain in the butt to spend a good 40-45 minutes to either straighten or curl it with a curling wand only to have it become a big frizz-ball. Nowadays, it's easier to just put it in a messy bun and call it a day. But fear not, for I have compiled some of my favorite go-to cute, yet messy hairstyles I love to sport most of the time (more like all of the time, saves me the hassle).

1. Half-Up Pony

Okay, I'm not sure if this one technically counts as messy but I love being able to pull half my hair back and put it in a pony when on the go. And it's super cute and works for just about any occasion.

2. Classic Messy Bun

The messy bun, my all time favorite. I love the classic messy bun for many reasons. During my four years of high school, I would wake up ten minutes before having to leave because I am not an early riser so I became a pro at getting dressed in five to seven minutes and it was a lot quicker to throw my hair up instead of waking up earlier than I wanted to style my hair when I know it would be a mess by the end of the day.

3. Braids

I use to be crap at braiding my own hair but the past year I've found myself being able to perfect braids (only French braiding though, any other kind is a hot mess), and I love them so much. For my short hair girls, yes you can still rock any kind of braid(s) you desire. Quick tip if you do want to do the pigtail braids is when both are complete just combine the ends into a pony, works great and looks just as cute.

4. Messy Pony

Being able to quickly pull your back with a few loose strands serves as the most classic, yet laid back look. It also is the perfect solution for those days when you are running late and don't have time to mess with other easy hairstyles.

5. Half Up Half Down Bun

This style has become quite popular in the last year and I love it. It's one of my go-to's on those days where I want to wear my hair down but yet I still want feel like rocking a messy bun.

6. Bobby Pin Fix

Bobby Pins have saved me on numerous occasions when I can't find a single pony holder. You can do just about any quick hair style wit bobby pins, and it might be easier to use if you have shorter hair. All you have to do pull whatever amount of hair back you want out your face, pin it up and you're all set.

7. Head Band Up-Do

I came across this hairstyle one day while scrolling through Pinterest and I absolutely love it. All the material you need is a headband that is thick enough to hold your hair in the back and you're done. Simple and cute.

These styles can be a lifesaver on those bad hair days or when you are feeling lazy. And if you want to style them in a different way Pinterest will provide just about any style you are feeling.

How To Look Put Together When You're Secretly Falling Apart

It's hard to try to look good when you've just dragged yourself out of bed, but you can manage.

Look. Life is hard, I get it. Sometimes you manage about two and a half hours of sleep in one night, and you absolutely are not feeling it, but you still want to look like you’ve managed to get your life together enough to put forth some effort. It’s really easier than you’d expect, and with just fifteen extra minutes in the morning, you too can look put together while you’re falling apart!

As a professional Lazy Girl(TM), I’ve managed to perfect the art of looking decent in as little time as possible. Sometimes, it requires a little extra effort at night, but I don’t really plan on getting much (if any) sleep at night, anyway! (A note: this advice doesn’t apply to morning showerers, because you people confuse and frighten me.)

You’re gonna wanna take a shower an hour or so before you go to bed, and if shaving is your thing? Go for it. It’ll make your life easier in the morning, because wearing a dress is easier than picking out to matching articles of clothing, and you lose no mobility or freedom if you throw some compression shorts on with it!

If you’re absolutely entirely opposed to wearing a dress, pick your clothes out at night. People say this all the time, but it genuinely cuts about five to ten minutes off your morning routine, especially if you’re as indecisive as I can be. If not, find a casual dress and throw that sucker on in the morning. The less accessorizing required, the better, and you look effortlessly put-together.

I know hair can be a struggle for some people, so this can throw you off. However, I don’t have that struggle, thank God, so my go-to for hair is a half-up ponytail with a scrunchy. If you can’t do that, I know you have a quick’n’easy hairstyle tucked away somewhere in your head. Make use of that knowledge!

Whether or not you wear makeup, of course, is entirely up to you, but if you do, it’s great to have an easy makeup routine. Three, maybe four steps, tops. I’m a fan of Too Faced Born This Way concealer for my dark circles and redness, a shadow from the Morphe 35OM palette for my brows, ELF liquid liner, and Essence mascara. This can take as little as ten minutes, and it’s easily the most time-consuming step of my morning routine.

All of this is relative. Take that into consideration-- what takes me ten minutes may take you three or four, and my skincare routine of soap and water might be more extensive for you. Regardless, this has, over the years, turned out to be the simplest (and most effective) morning routine I’ve ever had, and I sincerely, deeply hope this advice can help my fellow lazy girls out there become Lazy Girls(TM) while still maintaining an air of "I actually tried today." Now, go forth and be lazy!

Things People With Acne Hate Hearing, As Told By 'Grey's Anatomy'

The struggle is so very real.

Many of us have acne. (To those of you who don't, you're lucky).

And while it is an experience shrouded in insecurity, constant cleaning, and stress (I know, a thrilling cocktail), sometimes, other people make the experience even less bearable. Here are 4 things everybody who has had acne have heard before, and four things we'd honestly prefer to go without hearing.

1. "You should wash your face."

I mean, you really think I don't? That makes total sense. I just go home, soak in my own filth, and go to sleep. I should clean my face? Genius.

2. "Stop eating sugar."

We're human. We like sugar. Our acne shouldn't require us to become raw vegans.

3. "I never get acne."

Don't get me wrong: I'm happy you don't have to deal with the acne struggle. But, when somebody is struggling with something, emphasizing that you have it easier isn't exactly the most sensitive thing to do.

3. "Don't worry. It'll pass."

I mean, I know, but I don't live in the future. I live right now. And right now, my acne sucks.
