Get Wig or Clip-ins
If there is one thing to have when it comes down to a bad hair day, it’s a wig.
There is nothing hair piece can’t cover up, from receding edges to terrible haircuts. Celebrities show us every day that there is no limit to hairstyles or colors that we want to wear.
Who knows how Beyoncé’s, Rihanna’s, or Kylie Jenner’s real hair looks like under their clip-ins? You never see what’s really going on under their expensive do’s and that saying can apply to you as well. If you’re someone with medium or long length curls, then extensions are also a great alternative.
Clip-ins can easily hide a lousy layering job someone did to your mane; they can fill in the gaps and make your hair fuller in the process. Maybe trying out wigs will help you determine which style you want to try on your hair in the future.

Shorter Look: Cut Your Hair A Little More
I know chopping off more of your hair is the last thing you probably want to do but trust us it might alleviate the issue.
Sometimes getting a lousy haircut could lead to you to a bomb pixie style waiting for you to wear. Getting to your old stylist might come with an awkward moment. So, it would be in your best interest to try out a new hairdresser.
This option is the quickest way to resolve the problem, and short hairstyles can look amazing. If you have lousy layering on your tresses go for a blunt cut, these can look edgy and chic. If it was a lop-sided chop, try cutting off a few more inches and go for a cute, sporty pixie cut.
If you are already into short hair, then shaving off some more of the length won’t hurt you too badly. I will admit that this option is for fearless ladies. If you’re someone who doesn’t care too much about their locks this method will suit you well. To deal with life’s minor inconveniences, we must know how to bounce back quickly.
So, the next time you get a terrible haircut to take those scissors and chop it down a few more sizes.
The simple updo is perfect for anyone dealing with a bad haircut or messy hair day.
You can complete this look in minutes, and it will hide the signs of a horrible cut. It works best on medium or long-haired people. But if you have a shorter length, I would use bobby pins to secure any flyways that are in the bun.
It’s easier to achieve this style if your hair is not washed or dry. The oils you put in your curls will give the method more texture. Be sure to use a hairbrush so your strands will not tangle or knot up in the process.
For most people its hard to execute the perfect messy bun, but with a bad haircut, it will look natural. Going the extra step and adding in a headband will help the shorter ends get into the ponytail. One major tip to live by is making sure that you use a strong hair tie. If the elastic band you use is too loose, the shorter strands will not be able to make it into a bun.
You don’t want to have excessive bobby pins on your head so use these hair accessories to your advantage.
Slick Back Hairstyle
A slick back hairstyle can disguise any lousy haircut no matter if it’s on short or long tresses.
Sleek hairstyles are not only sexy but super edgy. This hairstyle can cover up and lop-sided cuts or uneven layering on your curls. What we love most about the slick back look is that it only requires two products and one hair tool.
All you’ll need is water, hair gel, and a bristle brush. The more hair gel or promenade you use, the better, the shorter ends of the strands will lay flat. I would suggest wetting the hair first before adding any extra product into the locks.
A little goes a long way, so don’t overdo it, when it comes down to gel. You don’t want to have a hard looking exterior on top of a crappy haircut, that would make things worse. If one side of your hair is shorter than the other, try creating a deep part or section on your head. Make sure to use your brush to smooth and lay out your edges.
This technique will allow you to flatten the shorter side on to your head and still create a fabulous looking style. If you want, you can add a decorative hair clip or accessories to spice up the look.
Don’t let a lousy haircut keep you from looking sexy, try out this sleek style today!

So, use the section of hair on your hairline to create a high-top knot bun. After you put it in an elastic band or hair tie, pin small parts of the ponytail around the scrunchie. This process will create a little bun that will have the fact that your strands are short or cut weird. When you finish the style try using some hairspray to ensure that everything stays in place throughout the day.
