Windy season styles
May 22nd, 2008 at 10:58pm
 
Any suggestions out there for styles that stay looking nice and professional even in the wind?  I come home at night a little depressed because my braid or bun that looked so great that morning is blown all over with wispy ends hanging out.  Would a long fringe help cover up the wispies?

You could try a hairnet for the bun.  Maybe if you use some aloe gel and braid damp it would help for the braid style.  Also, you could use a scarf for the front/top of your hair and braid the back.

Good Luck!!

Wind + bangs = NOT COOL!  Shocked
Believe me, "fringe" will only make things worse since there's no way to secure them. And the longer the "fringe," the worse the tangles.

Living in desert country, high winds are something I must often deal with. The best solution, seriously, is to remain indoors. If you work outdoors, however, then I would suggest following Sakina's advice with the aloe gel. Just slick down whatever ends are sticking out of updo's.
    I usually wear a single braid and if it ends up looking ratty at the end of the day, I just re-braid it. No big deal. You can also tuck the braid into the back of your shirt if you're really worried about it.

Another little thing that might help is to lightly coat your hair with water, aloe gel, oil or all of the above before braiding.

Thanks for the advice ladies!  I recently got my real estate license and the last few days after showing homes or doing open houses I look like I just rolled out of bed.  Not exactly the image I want to project.  I've been meaning to get a squirt bottle of aloe, oil and water together anyway.  Guess this will be my kick in the pants to go do it!
