Lets get real here for a second. Youre busy, you have responsibilities and sometimes, you dont have one ounce of energy or one minute of time to wash, dry and style your hair. Washing your hair can seem like a daunting task if youre not blessed with an amazing wash-and-go hair type, and no one likes spending an hour trying to tame their hair.

Having dirty hair is something we all have to deal with whether we like it or not. If youre sick of throwing your hair up into a ponytail, here are some fun ideas on how to cover up your dirty hair:

1. Milkmaid braids

These braids are darling and a great way to cover up those greasy roots.

2. Any type of braids

Side braids, ponytail braids, French braids and braid crowns are all great options (and the grease will actually help your hair stay in place).

3. A darling hat

Its beanie season! Use it to your advantage.

4. The famous top knot

You can never go wrong with the classic top knot.

5. Dry shampoo

Pro tip: use dry shampoo right after you wash and dry your hair. Itll start absorbing the oils before they even show up as grease! This is my very favorite brand, and you can buy it here.

6. Wear a fashionable headband

Always fabulous.

7. Get a good texturizing spray

Dirty hair can make for some great texture. Get a good texturizing spray to play it up.

Buy it here.

8. Wear some cute hair accessories

Darling hair accessories are a perfect way to cover up and distract from dirty hair.

9. Switch up your part

Switching your part will give you tons of extra texture, volume and confidence to rock that greasy hair.

10. Wear two french (or dutch) braids

Back to the braids -- these are perfect for second (or third, or fourth) day hair.

11. Put a twist on the classic pony

Put your hair in a ponytail, then wrap a strand of hair around the elastic. Its a fun twist on a classic style.

12. Do the half-up hairstyle

Perfect for any occasion.

13. Or the half-up braided bun

Also perfect for any occasion.

14. Wash and go

If you must wash your hair, you dont have to spend an hour styling it. I use this sea salt spray, and it gives my hair just enough texture and body to be able to wash and go. Its the best!
