Time is often your biggest enemy in the morning. Do you ever remember the time when you wake up, take a shower, and still be able to blow dry and style your hair with your favorite hairstyle for the day? You’re not alone. A lot of women today find themselves rushing through the morning to try to get to work on time and avoid the morning rush on the road. Whoever has the time to do some styling?
In most cases, being able to blow dry your hair is already a luxury in itself. Hence, most women are left with wet hair to work with. Not the best canvas to produce beautiful hairstyle you’d be proud to wear all day, right? It’s frustrating and seems like hopeless. Of course, you can’t skip shower but you can do some styling alternatives to make up for lack of blow drying and the usual styling.
Wet Hair Styling Tips
You have to determine how to style your wet hair depending on the natural hair type. If you have straight hair, towel dry your hair before applying a leave-in conditioner. Make sure to use a wide-tooth comb, too, in order to remove any tangles as you air dry the hair. Finish off with a paddle brush to keep strands smooth from roots to ends.
Meanwhile, curly haired women must spritz on a texturising spray and anti-frizz serum before you begin styling. Make sure the spray is evenly applied throughout the hair. Also, try scrunching the hair to ensure you can get more volume from the styling prep.
Styling it Down
Try twisting your hair for a few minutes before releasing it and leaving it down. This is an excellent trick for styling straight, wet hair because you can create more bounce and beautiful, soft curls. A leave-in revitalising spray can also give it that nice finishing texture.
Another trick you can try if you want to let your hair down is to part it in the middle. Simply tuck hair behind the ears and you’re good! You can even try adding a headband or scarf into the mix for improved styling!
Styling an Updo
A very important tip to remember when styling wet hair in an updo: make sure to detangle the strands! Or else, your hair can be exposed to breakage or splitting when it gets knotted up as you are creating an updo. Also, some of the smaller hairs tend to stand up or form a flyaway when you put it up, so make sure to apply a leave-in cream. Another good product to use is a gel or mousse to give staying power to your hairstyle.
One updo you can try is a sleek, high bun. Start by gathering hair on top of the head and twist it to form a bun. Use 1 or 2 elastics (depending on hair length or thickness) to secure the bun. You can also add some personality into your bun by pulling out short hairs on the sides for a face-framing effect.
But if you prefer a low bun, simply create a ponytail to start and keep it around the back of the nape. Start twisting until you reach the ends and able to form a bun. Secure the ends with a bobby pin or elastic to forma low bun.
