Forget the dry shampoo – your favorite celebrities are now skipping the root soaker and going for the ultimate lazy girl hair ‘do, greasy hair. To pull off the almost wet-looking style you have two options: You can go for slicked-back hair, which comes off a little more refined, or you can really embrace your greasy locks and leave it down, which gives you some big texture. Besides looking cool, not shampooing, blow drying or adding too many products is actually good for your strands. When your hair gets washed too often it gets stripped of the natural oils that help give it the shine and body you’ve come to enjoy. So go ahead, skip the shower today and embrace those greasy locks.
1. Gigi Hadid: The supermodel frequently sports the greasy hair look — especially on the runways of Paris Fashion Week, where countless trends are born. To sport her ‘do, part dirty hair down the center and give a mist of spray gel at the top of the head. Next use a fine-toothed comb to smooth back hair and tuck loose strands behind the ears, and voilà, you’ve got a quick, cool look that will get you out the door in no time.
2. Rosie Huntington-Whitely: No time to wash your hair? Why not pull back those dirty tresses into a sleek bun, à la the recently engaged Rosie, for something that looks polished on the fly. To achieve this look, apply gel to hair and comb through. Pull hair back into a sleek bun or pony, and enjoy. If you want to add a little detail, you can try parting your hair on the side or in the middle after applying the gel. If you have any flyaways, you can smooth down with a spritz of hair spray.
3. Kate Hudson: Kate did double duty with her hair the night of the Oscar’s: On the red carpet for the awards she donned a classic Hollywood look with big waves. But when she took the carpet at the Vanity Fair after party she not only lost the extensions, she was spotted wearing some greasy tresses that gave her some wonderful texture and framed her face. Although the look seems simple, it has a few steps – add some waves to your hair with a curling iron, then work through gel. Give hair a blast with a blowdryer to set. Next tuck hair behind ears, and set the look with a mist of hairspray.
4. Kim Kardashian West: Kim K has detailed her weekly hair care regimen before — the reality star only washes her hair once a week! She told WWD, “I start out the first day with a clean blowout. The second day, I put in dry shampoo, which adds texture. Then, the third day, I sleek it and I straighten it, and then, the fourth day, I put our oil in it, and I make it a really sleek look. I might do a ponytail or a sleek bun. That’s my hair plan, and then I start over.”
