“bad hair day”

When you tell someone that you’ve been having a bad hair day, what you mean is that you’ve been having a bad day. It doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with your hair.

Example: Ever since the debacle in the World Cup, it’s been one bad hair day after another for our overpaid underachievers.”
