I have said on my blog a few times before that I wash my hair about once, mayyybe twice a week which has resulted in lots and lots of emails asking how I wear my hair when it is so greasy and what I do to not make it look so greasy.
This below is the fastest way I do it. I sometimes do braids or a milk maid look but when I am in a hurry I do this because it takes two seconds. I creepily stalk all Victoria’s Secret models.. (I literally dreamed of being one since I was like 5 years old. Maybe that is weird or maybe we all secretly do) But I love them because they always look so effortlessly chic.
I always see Erin Heatherton wear her hair like this, in a messy slicked back pony with the two front chunks out (google ‘erin heatherton hair’ or ‘erin heatherton pony tail’ to see what I am talking about).. and since I creepily idol her, I copy her and do it all the time too, even though she pulls it off much better
Also to make my hair not look so greasy I use dry shampoo but sometimes that dries out my extensions so I use cornstarch on my roots or baby powder! I just put it on my finger tips, tip my head over and brush it all over my roots. But I try to veer away from baby powder because I have had one to many incidents of “what the? why does it smell like baby powder all the sudden?” as I walk by a group or something embarrassing. I am sure you blondes know what I am talking about!
Another funny story.. I was just in New York ya know? So I was going through security and every time I do it detects something on my head because of my extensions and they come over and just pat my head and tell me I am good to go. Well this time I am standing there waiting for her to pat my head because I see my scan and see the head region lit up but I look at the lady and she could tell I saw the scan and was waiting so she said, “oh its not a big deal sometimes it goes off when someones hair is wet.”
….my hair wasn’t wet.
Whoops! I am such a savage.
Anyways, in these pics I don’t have cornstarch or anything to combat the grease just my hair on day 4! Greasy hair makes for a good grungy pony.
