Bad hair day. It really not just your hair that’s having a bad day, isn’t it? Your bad day starts at the top of your hairtips and ends when you hide your hair under your pillow that evening! What if… you can change all that and have a Fabulous Day from your hair to your toes, all the way into the night?
Got your attention, didn’t I? But really, think about it: how many days would’ve gone great if it wasn’t for that bad hair? I know I went through pouts and tears, slamming and cursing every time my hair choose the highway over my way! Now let me show you the U-turns I take when my hair takes the interstate!
1. Bobby pins
My best hair-friends! Buy a couple. No! Buy a bobby pins stack! It will instantly make you feel better! Bobby pins are cheap. For just a couple of $, you get a ton of tiny black pins (or gold if you hair is fair). First thing to know about bobby pins is how to use them right: when you put them in your hair, use the wavy part against the scalp and not the other way around! Secure more volume, a rebel fringe, a wild part with just three bobby pins!
Whenever I wash my pants or my pocketed vests, I have to check out for bobby pins deep in the pockets. I carry them everywhere – in my purse, in my pockets, I vacuum the car myself so I get over the guys at the carwash frowning over too many bobby pins stuck in the car’s carpet! Next time you see a lady driving a car packed with kids fixing her hair at the first stop, you’ll know it’s me! They’re my day-savers, my hair is having considerably less bad days because I use my bobby pins!
While you may think of the good ol’ headband as a way to add something pretty to your hair, I see them like my emergency must-do on a bad hair day! I’ve used elastic headbands, plastic headbands, metallic headbands, shoelaces as headbands, heck! I even used belts as headbands! I make at least a headband a week for me or my daughter, my daughter’s friends or my neighbors, my neighbors’ daughters and so forth!
And if the headband doesn’t work or you simply can’t match any headband to what you’re wearing that day, think about a scarf! A bandanna, a fabric belt, a tie, a bow-tie! Wear it and your hair day is gonna be so much better! You’ll love your hair, your day and everyone will love you back!

I don’t wear these enough! I Love hats! Straw hats, fedoras, men hats, knitted, crocheted, braided, hats are so hot! I know, you’ll say hey! ‘You’re recommending we use something you’re not actually using?’ – to all those who nag, I’ll just ask this: did you try hat-ting and driving? I swear, they should put this in the law somewhere! A sticker on the car: don’t wear a hat and drive!

How do I know? Because I tried it, duh?! That was the day my hat was airborn on the interstate! I hope it’s in a happy place, now!
Like I am whenever I try my emergency bad hair day: happy! My hair is happy, I am happy, everyone’s happy! Come on! Let’s give that hair a happy break!
