Have you ever had a day when you thought the world was working against you? We all have good days and we all have bad days. Sometimes, though, a day can be especially bad. This kind of day, when nothing goes right, is called a bad hair day.

A bad hair day is a day when nothing seems to happen like it should. If you wake up late for work, and are tired all day, you could say you are having a bad hair day. Another example could be a day when you just feel really unlucky or you lose something really important. We all have bad hair days, we just have to hope the next day will be better.

Track star Marion Jones thinks that famous people don’t have bad hair days. She thinks that people with a lot of money have good days every day. Do you think that’s true?

Well, everyone could meet their bad hair day, rich people have their worry, and we, we have our worry. For myself, I will let it be to enjoy in something i love, not try to think about what happened so much. Sometimes just sing out loud the song you like, that is enough to forget your bad hair day temporarily. And next day, when our mind is more brilliant, everything is not as bad as we thought. Hope everyone is doing well.

People can decide to make all their days bad hair if they just feel that. When E.g. waking up late for work can be a small problem but the treatment with this issue can avoid any obstacles might happen during the day. We just need to be hopeful, positive, and take it easy. We truly able to make all our days full of success and happiness. Even though we face some difficulties we should not concentrate on them and think about the shining side.

I think that “bad hair day” can happen to anyone but the point is how we deal with it. I don’t think it’s right to show our anger or disappointment to the people we meet when we have a bad hair day because everyone is just like us. They may also have a bad hair day and they have to deal with it, too.

Who has a lot of money, has own problems, rich people has the biggest problem to saving their money and famous people has a lot of problems, all of them do not have a normal life, media everywhere follow them to take photo! Isn’t that big problem for them?
When I have a bad hair day I try not to do something makes worse the situation and I try to be patient.
All days are not same and we should hope tomorrow will be better.

As everybody i have   days  when  i am not in a good mood  , when i am extremely tired  and worn out the mood  shows up in my face , but i am conscious that  when dealing with people i should put my best smile , they have also bad hair days, don`t need mine.


It is unrealistic to think  that rich people always live on cloud nine , they are worried when their investments or portfolio  slides down, or related family are dilapidating  the money , and what to say  if  they get sick and all the money in the world can`t cure  the sickness.

In my opinion each sort of person from any where,doing anything (for example famous people,doctor, etc) will have a bad hair day,becuase it’s usuall for a human ,it’s in his or her entity to have bad hair day and shexpier reminded that human’s life likes a boat on a sea it would have up and down,you should use it when it’s immotile.

One of the silliest things that can disturb my peace of mind is the weather. So, I’m waking up and it’s kind of gloomy out there and the sun is scorching and air particles seem to be stationary, I say to myself “you seem to be having a bad hair today”, so I keep morose all the day, no talking, no kidding, I actually feel like a zombie – you can imagine me walking that way xD – So I really think it’s ridiculous to have a weather-dependant mood..

Everybody has bad hair days ,Kings and Queens too ..:)


Everybody will have hard,bad,unlucky days..down mood..unexpected unpleasant surprises in life ..all people ; rich or poor, famous or usual,young or older,male or female,white or black,muslim or christian or buddist will face with hard side of life ,sooner or later ..


what should we do in this case ? 


firstly, Keep your calmness..dont lose your hope,faith and dreams..


secondly, believe everything will pass,this too …


thirdly, concentrate on different beautiful things..occupy your mind with different ideas..watch mountains,seariver lake,nature ,birds,sun up / sunset ..listen your favorite songs,music ..Be alone with yourself as enough ..


OR sit in front of mirror and straighten your bad hair :)))

I think rich people have bad hair day too. Those days are not based on financial problems except if they go to bankcrupt. Their bad days come from their private life for example love and/or family problems.

Very simple! When I have a bad hair day I just wear a stylish hat or a scarf! 


Okay, now to be serious, with two little children most of the days are bad hair days for me. From experience I know that yelling or behaving like a bear with a sore head doesn’t do any good. It just makes me feel guilty afterwards. 


Therefore, I try not to broadcast my annoyance to others even if I hurt inside.

It is better to keep yourself from taking serious decisions on bad hair day,better  not to show your bad mood to anybody and keep positive feelings that tomorrow everything will change for your benefit.

I think everybody have experience it, for me especially, I don’t take it as unlucky day. My friend does, when she seems to have a bad hair, she always yells at someoe else, having sour face, no smile and grumpy the whole day . No good I think.
