Anyone can rock great hair when the sun is shining and the weather is a nice in between temperatures, but when it’s wet, humid and gross outside and you still need to look pretty, that simple flowy hairstyle just won’t do. Instead, keeping chic requires a little bit of extra effort to achieve greatness and this post is sure to inspire you to try at least one of these gorgeous styles to keep those tresses at bay and your sanity in check.
Try some of these tips before going full out on the do:
- Wash hair the night before to avoid the frizzies come the a.m.
- Always keep pins/elastics and a comb in your bag during rainy season.
- Sea salt spray can be your best friend.
- Always take cover – never expose hair to we elements! (umbrella and hat a must)
Rope It Up!
A double braid allows for all of your hair to keep tucked and out of your face all day with minimal frizz and a whole lot of cool factor. This updo is perfect for shorter hairstyles as well as long. If you have a lot of hair left on the ends you can always tuck them up into a lower bun too! Adorable and practical!
Hairstyle of the day: double rope braids updo for short to medium hair. Create a rope braid (I explain how to on my YouTube channel) and tie it off past your ear. Create a low messy bun with the hair left over.

Easy Does It
Sometimes the simplest things make the biggest statements, and a perfectly placed ponytail can do just that – even in a rainstorm. Just make sure to keep your hair scrunched with sea salt spray if you think it will be exposed to water. Otherwise, opt for a shiny version like the one below, and off you go!
Wrap It Up!
Head wraps and hair bands were invented for messy hair days, why not take advantage and pull out the patterns and colors? This look is also perfect when you don’t want to wash your hair but you still want to make a statement. Super simple and easy to do too.
Show Off Your Buns!
If you’ve mastered the art of the perfect messy bun then a rainy day is the perfect time to sport it. Wear this hairstyle with a cute tracksuit or business suit for optimal chic factor. Understated and gorgeous.
