As you’ve heard time and time again: Always save for a rainy day. You shouldn’t just apply this old adage to your bank account; apply it to your lineup of rainy day updos as well. It’s no secret rain and humidity can prevent a great hair day, but that’s no reason to not look (and feel) your best. Let’s be honest, wearing your hair down on a rainy day is basically a bad hair day waiting to happen. Once a drop of rain touches your hair it’s basically over—at least for the most of us!
Check out these amazing foolproof hairstyles to wear on a rainy day:
Rainy Day Updos to Withstand the Weather
1. Side-Twisted Bun
The perfect hairstyle for those days you happen to get caught in the rain. We’ve totally been there before. Part your hair down the side or center, then loop your hair into this cute and simple updo to save the day!
2. Rainy Day Updos: Scarf Headband
Cover your hairline, a common area for pesky baby hairs and frizz to pop up in the rain, with a scarf headband. We love how chic this look is and it takes no effort at all!
3. Side-Braided Rainy Day Updo
Opt for this braided hairstyle for two reasons. One: It’s super cute and rather easy to do. Two: It’s a hack! You’re a plait away from a wavy hairstyle. Spritz some salt spray onto your hair, using a spray like Nexxus Between Washes Beach Waves Tousled Texture Sea Salt Spray to create a loose, textured look. Braid your hair into a single plait and secure the ends with a hair tie. When you have arrived at your destination, relate the braid and tousle your hair.
4. Double Bun with a Beanie
Want the ultimate cozy rainy day hairstyle? Add a beanie! Create a double bun style and put on your fave beanie for a sweet and simple style.
5. Hat with Face-Framing Bangs
Who said wearing a hat is boring? Try a wide brim hat on a rainy day but don’t hide all of your hair. Pull out some hair at the front to add face-framing bangs for a stylish touch. If you’re worried about getting your long bangs wet while you commute, tuck them in then release when you’re indoors.
6. Boxer Braids
If you don’t want to deal with your hair at all in a rainy day sitch, why not put it up in some athleisure-chic boxer braids. Take this opportunity to add a nourishing hair leave-in treatment, like SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Leave-In Treatment to your ends.
7. Braided Bang
If a hat is not your thing but you would love to protect your bangs from fighting a war with Mother Nature, add a braid and tuck it into an undone top knot. We also love this simple style for the days you accidentally left your umbrella at home and need a quick updo hairstyle.
8. Scarf Covering
Need something just to get you from point A to point B? Throw a scarf around your style to cover your hair from rain and make sure your look is fresh when you get to your destination.
9. Twisted Updo
Rain and naturally curly hair is nature’s perfect recipe for a frizz situation, and we’re sure you don’t have the time for that! Try out this neat twisted updo hairstyle. Protect your curly fringe by twisting it and swooping it over to the side.
10. Delicate Accessories
If a ponytail is inevitable for you in your future, add some delicate hair clips to step up the look. Before you leave the house, apply some Bed Head by TIGI Get Twisted Anti-Frizz Finishing Spray to your style to help prevent frizz from ruining your rainy day updos in the inclement weather.
