It can be tricky to find the right hairstyle on the days when you don't wash your hair. However, the good news is that you actually have more hairstyle options on these days then you do when you've just washed your hair as slightly dirty hair holds its style better.

Romantic and intricate updos are easier to achieve and they are also the perfect way to hide the fact that you didn't wash your hair in the morning. Not only that, but styles like this also make a welcome change from fail safe options like topknots and ponytails.

If you're having a dirty hair day, never fear! Simply scroll through the gallery for some hairstyle inspiration.

Hairspray: your secret weapon

Whatever updo you are working, a spritz of hairspray is always a good idea. Hairspray can be used to bring some interesting texture to your look, which can be very useful for hiding your roots or adding some extra detail or texture to your look. Hairspray should also help you to keep the style in place and make sure that it lasts as long at you want it to.

Why not create a high volume French twist style? Simply spray your hair with hairspray, tease the layers underneath and then French braid the hair. Your hairstyle will have a more interesting twist than an ultra sleek version of the same hairstyle and it will create a striking silhouette.

Top tip: Another easy trick is to mist hairspray over your hair and then use a brush (or your hands) to tease your hair to create a slight mohair finish. This is a sure fire way to create a romantic effect and soften your look.

Beautiful braids

Braided styles are also ideal when you're in between washes. From classic braids to intricate fishtail braided styles, the possibilities are endless! Experiment a little and maybe you'll even create your every own braided style.

So there you have it, a whole host of hairstyle ideas for unwashed hair, you'll never have a bad hair day again!
