Rainy Day Hairstyles That Will Make You Look SUPER Chic
Come monsoons and our hair seems to have gotten a life of its own. It’s as if the sole purpose of the increased humidity is to ruin our carefully put together hairstyles the second we step outdoors. The rains keeps getting heavier and our hair keeps getting frizzier. Here are some super simple and chic DIY hairstyles that can withstand any types of downpours. Say goodbye to those hair woes with these rainy day hairstyles.
An elegantly chic style that looks elaborate but actually takes just a few simple steps to master. Begin by combing your hair back and tying 3 low ponytails at your hairline. Twist each ponytail and wrap the ends into the base to create your buns. Use a few bobby pins to secure your hair in place and you’re good to go. Add some pretty flowers in the buns to add to the cuteness factor. You can finish off with a hairspray if you want some long-lasting hold. Elnett hairspray by L’Oreal is one of the bests.
The Side Braid
Braids have shot up in popularity since awhile now, so go ahead and try this without feeling old-fashioned. Just gather your locks to one side and braid below the ear. Pull out a few strands and tousle your hair a bit for a relaxed-boho vibe rather than a school girl look. Braids are the perfect solution when you know the weather is at its worse. This simple style can be done anywhere when you’re caught in the rain.
A Top Knot
A laid-back yet stunning style that works on curly, wavy and straight hair. Run your fingers through your mane and secure it in a high ponytail. Twist it around before tucking the ends in at the base and secure it with bobby pins. You can finish off by slipping on a funky hair band to add some extra style points. With your piled on top of the crown of your head, this ladylike style accentuates your cheekbones and eyes so get ready to charm wherever you go.
This is another chic style you can try if you want to try something different with braids, and what’s more, it’s waterproof too. Create a centre parting and begin French braiding your hair on both sides, starting from about an inch from the hairline. Braid till the ends and then intertwine both the braids at the neck and twist both of them in the same direction. Take the ends and twist them up to the crown so they lie flat on the head and pin them in place.
The Low Side Bun
A sophisticated chignon to try if you’re feeling experimental. Create a side braid and wrap it around itself to create a bun on one side. Use pins to secure the bun and hold the braid in place. This is super simple and shouldn’t take more than a minute to create after you have made your side braid. A hair trend that requires minimum effort for maximum style.
A normal ponytail is so passé, try this slicked back style for a more polished and sophisticated charm. Using a defrizzing serum, blow dry your straight with a paddle brush. Taking a side part, use a little gel to smoothen the hair across the top of your head and tie it into a low side ponytail.
Who knew such simple steps could save you from the hair woes accompanied with unrelenting downpours!
