The only thing worse than the bone-chilling Polar Vortex we endured this past winter? The perpetually bad-hair days April’s showers bring along.
It’s not that we’re ungrateful for the warming temps. Of course we’re feeling better to have left the heavy layers, constant goosebumps and runny noses behind, but all this rain? We have to admit, we prefer toque-hair over frizzy, flat, untamed manes, any day.
Because we refuse to let another season get the best of us, we’re seeking hairstyle inspiration (or hairspiration, if you will) from someone who knows a thing or two about looking effortlessly chic on even the gloomiest rainy days. And who better for the part than Brit-It girl (and the undone-glamour queen herself) Sienna Miller?
Ten Hairstyles to Wear on April’s Rainy Days
Click through for 10 hairstyles that can't be ruined by rainy weather--a little frizz will only make these 'dos cooler.
The Braided Bun
For a cooler version of everyone's favourite messy bun, pull hair into a high ponytail, braid it, then twist the braided ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Rub hair at the temples to loosen, for an effortless, J.Crew-inspired style.
For a look that would do Kate Moss proud, grab large sections of your hair and curl with a 1.5-inch curling iron. Refrain from brushing your locks, and just comb fingers through it for that just-woke-up-like-this look.
The Messy Ponytail
Using only your fingers, pull hair back into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Pull a few short pieces out around the hairline, for a messy but totally sophisticated updo.
The Ballet Bun
Perfect on those unbearably damp days, part hair deeply and brush back into a tight, low ponytail. Secure with an elastic, then twist hair into a bun, and secure with bobby pins.
The Half-Up ‘Do
Allowing your bangs and/or layers to frame your face, pull hair into a half-up half-down style, starting at the part around 2.5" from the hairline. Secure with bobby pins.
The Partless Hair
Let your hair go wherever the wind takes it. Let your natural waves out and let your hair fall as it will.
The Dramatic Updo
To create this exaggerated bun, pull hair into a high, tight ponytail and tease starting at the root, working the brush down to the ends. Twist the teased ponytail into a bun and secure with bobby pins.
The Half Updo
With hair parted, tease the hair on the top-back of your head. Maintaining a part until about three inches from the hairline, pull hair back into a half-up, half-down style, and secure with bobby pins.
The Twisted Bun
With hair parted, pull two one-inch face-framing pieces on either side of the part, and pull the rest of your hair into a low ponytail. Twist each of the front locks of hair, pull back, and secure with bobby pins as close to the ponytail as possible. Then, twist hair in ponytail into a bun and secure with more bobby pins.
The Voluminous Bun
Part hair on side, and tease all over at the root. Pull hair loosely into a low ponytail. Pull short hair out of the elastic at the temple area, then twist hair in ponytail into a bun, securing with bobby pins.
