When it rains, your hair is exposed to humidity which can cause a surprise frizz storm and completely change the way you intended your hairstyle to look. To beat the elements and show mother nature who's boss, you need a few practical hairstyles in your arsenal to keep the rain out and prevent frizz from raining on your parade!

We've put together a gallery full of hairstyles that look great and do a fantastic job of keeping your strands under control.

Styling tips

1/ Keep your mane under wraps

Braids, buns and braided buns are all perfect for keeping the hair under wraps when it's raining. For added protection, smooth some serum throughout before styling to add shine and tack down any pesky flyaways.

2/ Get frizzy on purpose

If you can't beat the weather, you may as well make it seem like it's doing you a favor by rocking a deliberately disheveled hairstyle. A messy topknot, low knot, chignon or bun are all ideal for this purpose, and they're perfectly in keeping with this season's textured hair trend. To prevent a veritable frizz explosion, don't forget to mist your finished updo with plenty of hairspray to seal your strands against the elements.

3/ Go wet-look

If the rain is going to make your hair wet anyway, why not stay one step ahead with a wet-look hairstyle of your own choosing? Smooth some regular strength gel through your hair before putting it up to get a slick finish that you're totally in control of!
