Bouncy Waves that Wont Fall Flat
If youre set on wearing your hair down, use a thinner curling wand like amikas to curl hair a little bit tighter than you normally would. This way, your waves are less likely to droop if humidity sets in. As Juliette explains, the key to avoiding flat hair five minutes after you unplug is to hold each curl for a few seconds so it can cool after you remove the wand. Hit each layer of your hair with a lightweight dry texturizing spray like Bumble and bumble.s Thickening Dryspun Finish as you go to soak up any oil and add even more volume. Then, brush through your handiwork and use your fingers to gently tease your waves upwards so any future frizz looks intentional.
A Plan-B Ponytail to Salvage Your Style
If youre breaking too much of a sweat on the dance floor, transform your waves into a voluminous low ponytail, an easy way to salvage any down style thats getting too hot. Spritz Bumble and bumble.s thickening spray to revive sweaty strands, then gently tease hair at the crown. Gather all your hair at the nape of your neck, secure with an elastic, and wrap a small section of hair from your pony around the base to up the chic factor.
A Halo Braid that Looks Better Messy
A pretty fishtail halo braid is perfect for summer weddings because it strikes the right balance between undone and done up. Vlogger Amber Fillerups method is the easiest way to get this look. Divide your hair into two sections, leaving some face-framing strands loose, and create a fishtail braid on each side. Use your fingers to slightly loosen each braid before securing with elastics, then, bring one braid up and over your head, pinning behind your opposite ear, and bring the second braid under and over and pin behind your other ear to create the halo. Spray with a texturizing spray like Oribes to play up the lived in look, and let the humidity and heat do the rest.
The Side Braid that Keeps Long Hair Off Your Face
If updos arent your thing, try an on-trend side braid that will keep your hair out of your face and off your back. Vlogger Mimi of Luxy Hair dresses up the usual three-strand style by crossing hair under instead of over (aka Dutch braiding). To get the look, warm a bit of Oscar Blandi Braid Paste between your hands to give your hair some grip, and begin Dutch braiding, adding more hair as you go. Once you get just below your ear, continue the braid and secure with an elastic. Apply a little more paste to your fingertips, and go back and loosen your braid to add volume,texture, and extra hold against humidity.
