It’s a good thing that rainwater is essential for the earth’s well-being, because it sure does suck in a lot of other ways. A grey, gloomy day can be a total buzzkill, and the rain can ruin not just your good mood but your plans, your shoes, and your hair. Talk about a buzzkill: spending an hour or two locked in the bathroom with thermal spray, a blow dryer, and a flatiron, only to see all your hard work fall flat the moment you step outside. But that’s where rainy day hairstyles come into play.
There are two ways to approach your rainy day hairstyle. You can try to tell those locks what to do by slicking them back, spraying them in place, and twisting them into a chic, sleek bun. (Just make sure you have the right products on hand or that sleekness will turn to frizz at the first sign of clouds in the sky.) The other approach involves manipulating your mane into braids, ponytails, and updos that are chic, messy, boho — all those good things. These are styles that are meant to look loose and carefree on sunny and rainy days alike. So get your tools ready — it’s time to bring it on, rain!
