Hairstyles for Greasy Hair

1). Crown Braid

Put your hair into a side parting (after spraying copious amounts of dry shampoo). Do two normal braids, and hold them with a bobby pin (or elastic) temporarily. Have some bobby pins to hand and then wrap the plaits over the crown of your head, using the bobby pins to hide the ends of the braids. Pull out some of the braid to give it some volume, and then curl some tendrils around your face. Done!

2). Fishtail Braid

Put your hair into side parting again. Bring all of your hair over to one side. Split the hair into two sections. Then take a little section of hair from one side and pass it over to the other side, then take a small section from the opposite side and pass it back. Continue this for as long as you want/need. Ensuring you keep the braid fairly tight. You can massage the braid for more volume during the process or when it's finished. Secure with an elastic and then pull out some tendrils to frame your face.

3). Half-up Half-down

Take a section of hair from the top of your head (if you go backwards from your eyebrows it is more flattering). Wrap it around itself until it becomes a miniature messy bun on the crown of your head, and secure with bobby pins or an elastic. Make sure to loosen the hair around the front of your head so you don't look too strained.

And there we go. Hope you enjoy these mini tutorials. Let me know if you try any of them out!

Lots of love, N x
