Sometimes, embracing humidity and the almost-always inevitable frizzy mess it so generously bestows on our hair is the only option. The good news is that there are some beautiful textured hairstyles you can try that actually work really well with humidity-induced fuzz. Check out some of our faves below!
1. XXL messy bun
If you're a wash and go kind of gal, you can tackle humidity with this easy messy bun hairstyle. When your tresses are only slightly damp, use your fingers to rake it all back, then twist it into a big, loose bun.
Apply a smoothing product like Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream before putting your hair up to minimize frizz and flyaways.
2. Karlie Kloss's beach waves
Textured beach waves à la Karlie Kloss really benefit from the extra volume humidity creates, resulting in a full-bodied hairstyle that's both sexy and understated.
Starting with either dry or damp hair, spritz a texturizing product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray from roots to ends, then blow-dry your hair in loosely twisted sections to get beachy, natural looking waves.
3. Textured bun updo
Basically a fancier way to wear a messy topknot, this textured bun updo looks good with a voluminous, slightly disheveled finish. As such, it's the perfect humidity-proof hairstyle!
Use a 1" curling iron to create loose waves through the lengths of your hair before putting it up. This will enhance the texture and help to make the finished look seem totally deliberate, whatever Mother Nature has in store!
4. Half-up tousled waves
Tousled waves also look great when worn with a half-up hairstyle. It's a bit more practical when you want to keep your hair off your face, and this kind of 'do looks gorgeous with accessories.
Scrunch some flexible hold product like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the ends of your hair to enhance the overall texture.
5. Natasha Poly's beachy braid
Braids often look better with a slightly messy, lived-in feel, which makes them perfect for humid days (and nights)! You can accessorize with a headband or ribbon, or simply let the texture do all the talking.
Backcomb the hair on top to build some extra height before braiding your hair.
