Usually I get ready in the dark & by the time I get to work my hair definitely doesn’t look its best, my hair could be greasy and dry and frizzy and messy & I’ve normally left my hair ties at home, What I do normally have is bobby pins though.
My hair has quite short layers which tend to get in my face so I separate them from the rest of my hair and start braiding. I don’t do it too tight as I want it to be comfortable through out the day but it still stays in all day! Keeping my hair out my face and it still looks like I’ve sort of made an effort! Though a bit of de frizzing wouldn’t go amiss (and maybe a hair wash) it still looks presentable!
