My Go-To Second Day Hair Styles

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

For those who don’t know, I resist washing my hair every day. Normally I wash my hair every third or fourth day. For those in between days that dry shampoo just isn’t doing the trick, I like to opt for these styles. They are simple and take little to no time to complete!

Half-Up Styles

This is definitely my number one go-to when I have second day hair. With most of these styles, I can easily style it without the need of dry shampoo. For this first picture, all I did was style a top knot. This is great if your top strands aren’t curled or straightened after a night of sleep. Not needing to apply heat on your hair again is definitely a plus. The second picture is a super easy and professional look to achieve. I just took two larger chunks of hair from around the front of my face and pinned them back with bobby pins. The last picture is very similar to the top knot but instead of a bun, I tied my hair into a ponytail. It’s super easy to style in under a minute and keeps your hair out of your face.

All-Up Styles

These styles are ones I swing more towards on day three hair. All-up hair styles are my go-to for hair that there is just no saving but I have no time to wash. As you can see from the pictures above, I definitely don’t do anything crazy.


Hats, along with all-up styles, are my last resort styles. Depending on the season and occasion I’ll switch up the hat but I definitely live in hats on the weekends where I get to just bum around.

What are your go-to styles for second day hair? I’d love to incorporate some new styles into my routine.

My Go-To Autumn Lip Shades


Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer

This nasty humid heat doesn’t have me feeling much of that beautiful fall weather I was promised. However, that doesn’t stop my style from switching seasons before the weather. I’ve officially declared it fall to my wardrobe. I’ve got an itch for a fall shopping spree (let me know if you would like to see a fashion haul). My clothes may need some freshening up for fall but I have my fall lip colors sitting out ready to use. These are some of my staple colors and I don’t stray too far from these darker nudes throughout the year. They are definitely more fall tones though, so I thought I would share.

  1. Tarte’s Tartist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in Namaste
  2. Maybelline Color Sensational in 940 Touchable Taupe
  3. NYX Soft Matte Lip Crème in Copenhagen
  4. Maybelline Color Sensational in 695 Divine Wine
  5. NYX Soft Matte Lip Crème in Athens

I swatched them all together in order below so you can see them in relation to each other since a couple of them are quite similar nudes. What are your favorite go-to fall shades? I’d love to try out some new shades!
