Is your hair in that in between stage of straight but not straight enough? Do you fear the rain and humidity because you know that your chance of a good hair day has gone out the window? If you feel like your mane is unmanageable at times, you may be suffering from frizzy hair. With the rain and the humidity approaching during the spring time, frizzy hair is bound to happen. But no worries — Valley has three hairstyles that will help you tame your frizzy hair on those rainy days.

Double French Braids

These braids are easy to do and keep hair out of your face all day. Split your hair in two parts and begin french braiding one side and then complete the other. If you want to add some personal flair to your braids, you can leave some wispy pieces out and curl them.

Pro tip: add hair moisturizer to the front of your hair before you start braiding so your hair is smooth.

Fishtail Braid

This is one step above a normal braid because of how it looks when you are finished. Start off by pulling your hair to one side (or leaving it down the middle if you are a pro at braiding behind your back). Split your hair in two pieces and pull one piece of one side to the other. Use one hand to hold the piece to the other side while you grab a piece from the same side to bring it to the other. Just keep repeating that criss-cross motion and you’ll have a beautiful fishtail braid in no time.

Half Bun

This hairstyle not only works for frizzy hair, but also for those who get out of bed five minutes before class starts. Split your hair in half (or pull 1/3 of your hair up so you can leave more hair down), and tie the top half into a ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around until you’ve created a bun that you are happy with in terms of how messy or neat. Once you have created the bun you desire, wrap a hair tie around it to keep it in place. This works best if the front half of your hair is frizzier than the rest because it will keep those hairs in the bun.

 

With these hairstyles, you will keep the frizz away and still manage to look stylish. If you create any of these looks, make sure to tag us on Insta or Twitter, @ValleyMag
