5 Best Hairstyles for a Rainy Day

1. Best Hairstyles for a Rainy Day Headscarf

A headscarf can add so much to a simple style.

While rain might put a damper on a totally sleek ‘do, it doesn’t do any harm to an accessorized updo. Whether you have curly strands or sleek straight hair, this style will work for you. Gather all of your hair into a low ponytail and secure it at the nape of your neck. Next, place the scarf around your head like a headband, tie the ends around your ponytail, and you’ll be good to go! To help with frizziness and give the style extra hold, use Love Beauty and Planet Light Hold & Frizz Control Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Light Hold Hair Spray.

You know, maybe your fine hair doesn’t dry as nicely once it gets doused by some moisture, which means your left with slightly greasy looking roots or frizzy strands. If you fall into this category, simply secure your hair in a low messy bun and top your look off with a hat. Feel free to leave two strands of hair out of the updo to frame your face. With this style, you’re totally bringing out your inner model-off-duty vibes.

You’re well aware by now that half-up hairstyles are having a serious moment right now. They’re great even on rainy days.
