These 11 Hairstyles Hide Greasy Hair When You Just Don't Have Time To Deal It — VIDEOS

Whether it’s because you’re running late and don’t have time to shower, just finished a fierce sweat sesh, or are just not in the mood to wash your hair, grease can creep up and start to show. Luckily, with these hairstyles that hide greasy hair, no one will question how long it’s been since you’ve had a chance to wash your locks. If your only strategy for hiding greased-out roots has been tossing a hat on top, prepare to up your game!

As a gal that used to have long hair that hit halfway down her back, I have major sympathy for those of you often dealing with the greasy roots struggle. I would always try to make my blow outs last as long as humanly possible when my hair was long because the constant upkeep and drying took for freaking ever.

I now have a pixie where it actually looks better greasy, but don’t worry: chopping all your hair off isn’t one of the suggested hairstyles below to hide greasy hair! I love the super short cut and think everyone should get one at least once. However, if you're attached to your long hair, there are plenty of stylish ways to hide the grease. Prepare to swoon for these hairstyles that use your grease to your advantage. There are so many fun braids, updos, and wavy styles made for grease, and your hair is gonna look fab.
