braid hairstyles

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending an eternity on your hair only to walk outside and have Mother Nature turn it into a poofy, frizzy mess in seconds. Humidity and rain are notorious hair-wreckers, but you don’t have to be a victim! You can fight back against the horrors of high humidity with these four weather-proof braids.

The Braid/Bun Combo

This style looks uber-sophisticated but is actually incredibly easy. Start by parting your hair on the side. Section off a one-inch portion on the side with more hair. Now, starting at your part, French braid your hair all the way to the tips and hold in place with an elastic tie. Gather up the rest of your hair and twirl into a loose bun at the nape of your neck or slightly to the side.

The Headband Braid

If the headband braid is good enough for Kirsten Dunst on the red carpet, it’s good enough for us. Get this humidity-proof braid by parting your hair down the center and separating it into pigtails. Braid each pigtail and secure it with an elastic hair tie. Now take the right braid and wrap it across the top of your hair, using a few bobby pins to hold it in place. Repeat with the other braid.

The Side-Swept Braid

This braid is a no-fuss, no-muss way to fight humidity and even rain. All you’ll need is an elastic hair band. First, gather your hair to your right or left side so it sits on your shoulder. For a little extra glam, tease your hair at the crown for some oomph. Finally, braid your hair loosely and secure with a tie. Simple as that.

The Double Trouble Braid

Kourtney Kardashian has sported this look quite a bit. The double braid is a great way to keep your hair in check no matter what the weatherman throws your way. Part your hair from your forehead to the nape of your neck and separate it into two sections.

Starting about one inch from your hairline, French braid each section and secure with a hair tie. Now twist both braids together at the nape of your neck to entwine them. Last, twist the ends up toward your crown, letting them flatten against the back of your head.
