Whether the cause of your greasy hair is due to an intense workout, thin strands or skipping one too many washes (we don’t judge), we think it’s fair to say that no one wants their hair to look oily. That being said, sometimes we don’t have the time to wash our hair with clarifying products, so we’re forced to get creative with our styling. Check out five chic hairstyles that we turn to whenever we need to hide greasy roots.

Messy Bun

A messy bun is a classic hairstyle for a reason. It gives us effortless model off duty vibes and is the perfect way to get an extra day or two with greasy hair.

Slick Ponytail

If your hair is already looking a little slick, double down on it by doing a sleek ponytail. You can customize this style by changing your part and the height at which you do your pony. Just make sure to add a little volume to the tail of your hair with the help of dry shampoo. We like the Garnier Fructis Invisible Dry Shampoo Beach Tonic.

Claw Clips

Claw clips are back and they are the perfect accessory to distract from oily hair. You can clip up all of your hair so it’s out of your face or try different claw-clip hairstyles, like half up, half down ’dos, twisted ponytails and more.

Tiny Pigtails

The pigtails you remember from kindergarten just got an upgrade, and we’re obsessed. Lately, tiny pigtails positioned at the top of the head with the rest of the hair out is trending. You can leave the style as is or accessorize it with multiple clips throughout for a cute and functional look that’ll mask greasy roots.

Double Dutch Braids

If you’re someone who likes their hair out of their face, double Dutch braids are the perfect style for you. It’s actually a little easier to do when your hair is a bit greasy because the hair has more grip, making it easier to braid.
