How to manage wavy hair in wet weather

Rainy weather can put a big damper on your hairstyle. Though your first inclination might be just to pull your hair in a ponytail and put on a baseball cap, that’s not always possible. Don’t fret — your hair can still look amazing even on wet, rainy days.


If the weather outside is frightful and you have a special date or other important event to attend, follow these tips to manage wavy hair in wet weather.

Get messy

A messy updo or loose ponytail is a fantastic choice when the weather outside is wet and nasty. Instead of a prim and proper bun, these hairstyles are intended to look a little undone. Pull your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure it and then twist your hair into a simple chignon. Hold it in place with bobby pins, but let the ends stick out. Finish with a spritzing of all-weather hairspray.

Braid it for the ride

If you want to wear your hair down when going out on the town during rainy season, braid it at home in loose braids. Then when you arrive at your destination, you can undo the braids in the car, run your fingers through your hair and make your grand entrance.

Cover it up

When your hair just isn’t cooperating, run for cover. Use a scarf or wrap to protect your hair from the wet weather and hide your bad hair day. Scarves can be flirty, exotic or dramatic, depending on how you wear them. Headbands are also trendy (and affordable!) accessories that can be used pull your hair back during wet weather.
