It doesn’t matter if you get the very best haircut you can afford, it doesn’t matter if you buy the most expensive, top-of-the-line hair products and it doesn’t matter if you wake up three hours before you have to be at work to primp and prime your hair, you will suffer bad hair days.

There are things in life that happen that are much worse than having a bad hair day, but not many. Having a bad hair day might make you sad, but in most cases, it will just make you downright cranky. When your hair misbehaves, it can ruin what was sure to be one of the best days of your life.

Before reaching for that baseball cap or calling in sick for the day, there is something you need to know: There are ways to turn bad hair days into acceptable hair days with a lot less effort than you might think. Here are a few tips your hair loss treatment clinic in Charlotte has for dealing with bad hair days.

Maintenance Cuts

The first step in dealing with bad hair days is to minimize the chances that you will have a bad hair day. To do this, we recommend a maintenance haircut every six to eight weeks. When your hair gets too long, it will be weighted down by your style and your hair won’t have the bounce and body you desire. It also increases the chances for a bad hair day.

Another thing you can do to avoid bad hair days is to keep your hair from becoming damaged by using salon-quality products that you can afford. The shampoo and conditioner you buy at the dollar store will not keep your hair in good health.

Ponytail or Bun

You might wear your hair in a ponytail or bun on occasion, so it makes perfect sense to do so when you are having a bad hair day. They can also be quite stylish if you pop a fabric flower in your hair to make a fashion statement. If you are sick of wearing a ponytail, try a cotton candy bun or twist your hair into braids and put them up.


If you have short hair and can’t get it into a ponytail or bun, throw a wig on and head out the door to begin your day. A wig is not only a great way to cover up your bad hair, it gives you a whole different look. We recommend you have at least a couple of wigs handy so on those days when your hair won’t behave, you can slip into a hairstyle that looks great every time.

Change Your Part

Another way to conquer a bad hair day is by simply changing your part. If you normally part your hair on the left side, try parting it on the right side. You might find that parting your hair on the other side gives your hair more volume, or it just looks different and you can deal with that.


If you are having a real bad hair day and nothing else is working, mix in a scarf or turban. Tying a colorful turban on the top of your head not only covers up your messy hair, it makes a great fashion statement. It is a look that is always in and the best part is you don’t have to take it off when you get to work.

Embrace It

You could just come to terms with the fact that you have bad hair days and just go with the flow. There is no shame in going to work with hair that is less than perfect. In fact, you might start a trend.
