BRAVE WINDY WEATHER HEAD-ON: TAMING FLYAWAY HAIR FROM JOHNATHAN BREITUNG SALON & LUXURY SPA
Blustery days can upset your perfectly-styled coif and leave hair looking messy and dull – not a cute look for any girl. Luckily frizzy, windblown hair can be controlled with a few easy tricks. Johnathan Breitung of Johnathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa in Chicago shares his top tips for keeping your hair looking fabulous whether your hair is wavy, curly, or straight.
Powerful gusts of wind can leave wavy hair looking limp. Johnathan Breitung recommends Texture from Bumble and Bumble to help style hair on windy days. Apply a small amount to damp hair. Scrunch and ruffle it through the hair and let the product sit for a couple of minutes. Texture can be air dried or for extra lift and movement use a diffuser. This will give your hair enough volume and bounce to resist losing its shape on a breezy day.
Try wearing your hair in a bun or pulling the front pieces into a half-up half-down ‘do. Straight hair can lose body and tangle easily, so a structured hairstyle is your best bet.
Windy weather can leave your hair looking lackluster. Eliminating alcohol products helps curly hair stay nourished and full-bodied. Deep-conditioning your hair weekly with products like Bumble and Bumble’s Deeep or Mending Conditioner will also keep your curly locks looking fabulous.
Tips for All Hair Types:
1) Get the tousled look. Work leave-in conditioner into your hair to keep it soft and sleek even in the most turbulent weather.
2) Check yo’ ponytail. A low ponytail is chic and works with any ensemble. It only takes a second to sweep it up and dodge flyaway strands all day long.
3) Head for the hills, or at least look like it. Heidi braids are a perfectly cute way to tie back your hair to avoid it getting swept away by the wind. Try crisscrossing them on the crown of the head and securing with bobbypins for a more sophisticated Nordic style.
4) Sleep chic. Opt for a satin pillow so hair slides smoothly instead of getting frizzy while you snooze.
