When you’re a boss lady [or guy], sometimes you just don’t have the time to create a salon finished look. Here are five easy ways to style greasy roots, from IGK co-founder @chasekusero, for when you’re on the go and crunched for time.
1. Change Your Part
Switching up your part adds volume + hides oil. Massage in a dry shampoo after you part your hair to cleanse away oil.
2. Create Visual Interest
Pin your hair to one side and use pins to add interest + instantly make your hair look “done.”
3. Sleek Bun
Hide away all that oil in a sleek top knot or low bun. Apply dry shampoo all over and massage in before creating your look. This will add some body and volume needed to create the perfect bun.
4. Textured Pony
When you’re really crunched for time, just throw it into a textured pony for an effortless undone look.
First apply dry shampoo from roots to ends. Massage in and tousle the hair to add volume + texture. Loosely gather the hair in the middle of the head, leaving the area over the scalp a little messy. Add extra dry shampoo or a texturizing spray to the length of the ponytail for added definition and volume.
5. Braid It
Do a French braid or a simple 3 strand braid to pull hair off the face and hide greasy roots. Apply Mistress Hydrating Hair Balm + Rich Kid Coconut Oil Styler from mid-lengths to ends before you braid for texture, hydration and hold.
