Greasy Hair, Don’t Care Is the Celebrity Trend You Have to Try
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.”

Getting the word out about your brand takes time, drive, and ingenuity. And it doesn't come easy for many entrepreneurs. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're chatting with Selfmade alum Taylor Morgan McPherson, founder of Sustainable Sparkle Bar, about ways in which she scored press as a solo startup brand and what she learned from Selfmade to take her brand marketing up a notch.
B + C: How did you know Sustainable Sparkle Bar was your business to start?
Glitter has always been my thing, so when I started my event company I decided to make it my niche. I started telling people I threw glitter-themed parties where people would get sparkled with glitter body art and makeup. Six months after that I applied to my first festival and to work with SUR restaurant in West Hollywood.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
I honestly can't say that I've had a specific strategy that I've followed when it comes to getting my business off the ground. I have a PR background so I was just constantly pitching new business and posting on social media.
B + C: What's the biggest challenge you face as a small business owner?
I would say creating a stable income and revenue stream. With a seasonal, event-based business it can be very up and down.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
The relationships I made and the push to start an email database.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I love what I do and I believe in myself 100%. Staying motivated isn't the hard part. Pushing myself to do the work and staying accountable is the hard part.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip? Do you use any apps that help you manage your business?
I keep multiple to-do lists, hand-written and digital. I also tell clients and partners that I will have something to them by a certain time or day so I have to stick to it.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Just do it, take the leap. And don't worry about what anyone else says to thinks.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Issa Rae, I'm so inspired by everything that she's created being a creative and a black woman. It's my dream to have my own show one day based on my life and where I give advice and talk about the world. She's doing it and making people laugh and giving people joy. And it's based in LA. Watching Insecure only further cemented my dreams of wanting to live in LA.
B + C: How did you hear about the Office Depot scholarship?
One of my friends that I met through Camp No Counselors saw an IG ad for it and nominated me.
B + C: What has receiving the scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start/grow your business?
It's completely helped me level up and take my business to another level. Selfmade helped me host my first virtual event and taught me how to set up my website to sell tickets to events and get RSVPs.
B + C: How have Office Depot services or products helped you accomplish more in your business?
I got new cards to send in all of my orders with my discount code on them. I also bought a really cool 4K camera that I now use for my social media.
