Humidity is one thing, but rain is a whole different ballgame when it comes to hair. Have you ever had the best hair day ever, only to walk out into a torrential downpour? Usually on a day where you’re running late and there’s no time to run back up and fix your hair. Yeah, you know exactly what we’re talking about–those not-so-fun summer heat storms. Obviously the weather isn’t always accurate, so it’s hard to know when you should be prepared to look like a wet dog or not. In this case, we’ve tapped into the world of our favorite street style bloggers for six gorgeous styles to opt for when it rains (or shines!). They obviously know how to look buttoned up no matter what’s in store. Check out the slideshow above for our favorite hair styles that work well with rainy days. And before you start styling, remember these four essential tips:
1. Avoid hairspray and gel like the plague on rainy days, as they’ll make your hair sticky and extremely hard to comb through.
2. Don’t even think about touching a straightener or blow dryer. Consider those two things a waste of precious beauty grooming time
3. If you you’re blessed with naturally gorgeous curls, apply a curl-enhancing product to accentuate your locks in the wet, rainy weather. We love DevaCurl B’Leave-In ($19).
4. Argan Oil is a life saver. If you find yourself in a downpour, add a few drops of this miracle oil to your wet hair. It will leave your locks shiny and frizz-free. Try Orlando Pita Argan Rejuvenating Treatment Oil ($20).
