What can I do for crazy hair day (that’s fast; that’s easy; with everyday household items; etc.)
For crazy hair day, you can use everyday household items to create a look that’s both fast and easy! For example, use colorful ribbons or bows to make pigtails or buns. You can also try parting your hair down the middle and styling it into two buns or two ponytails for a fun twist. Use spray gel to create spikes or swirls in your hair. Another option is to use bright temporary hair color sprays, which can be found at most drugstores. They come in a variety of colors and are easy to apply. Simply spray it on your hair and let it dry before styling into an out-of-this-world look. Glitter can be applied directly onto the hair with hairspray for extra shimmer! With just a few items from around the house you can have an awesome hairstyle for crazy hair day!
