How to Work It In Wet Weather

Moisture and humidity aren’t going away anytime soon, so deal with the rainy days ahead with these four water-resistant rainy day hairstyles. 

Rainy Day Hair

Rain — the dreaded weather pattern that fills our hearts with gloom, and hair with frizz. However, since moisture and humidity aren’t going away anytime soon, how do you get through the rainy days ahead? Well, we have a few water-resistant tactics for you.

1. Be Aggressive. B-E Aggressive (when Blow Drying)

They say the best defense is a good offense — and it’s no different for your hair. Get to the root of your rainy day problems (literally) by washing and conditioning your hair first thing in the morning. Blow dry it immediately until it’s 100% dry — this will make it harder for the weather to get to your hair cuticles and whip up frizz.

2. Lean Into Your Hair Type

Too tired to combat the effects of rain? Then embrace them! The one thing you can trust humidity to do is amplify your hair’s texture. So run a flatiron over straight hair, or perfect a few curly-haired twirls with a wand. Then spritz with a finishing spray to hold and hope for the best. We’re rooting for you, girl!

3. Work A Sleek Do

Slicked back styles are a lifesaver in the rain, since they’re super easy to achieve and even easier to maintain. Just use gel to pull hair up into a classy top knot, pony, or tight braid. This simple trick instantly transforms your look into a clean, elevated style. And while we do love the classic messy bun, bad weather isn’t the time to flaunt it. Added humidity can make those cute flyaways a little crazy.
