If you're anything like us, your default "bad hair day" style is a quick, artless pony. Now, there's nothing wrong with a pony--in fact, it can be quite chic--but there are a zillion other easy, quick style options to choose from when your strands are being difficult. From easy upsweeps to to Bettie Page bangs, check out our gallery of "bad hair day" style saviors.
If your medium-to-long strands won’t cooperate, embrace Nicole Richie’s tousled side-braid (as popularized the models in Alexander Wang’s Spring 2010 show).
TO DO: Use fingers to sweep hair over to one side, leaving out face-framing strands. Create a loose braid and secure with an elastic.
