The Top Knot

The top-knot is one of the quickest hairstyles around which makes it perfect for when there’s a sudden downpour! Simply tie hair into a high ponytail and then twist it around secure with a tie. If you have thicker or longer hair, you might want to use a few bobby pins to make sure your top knot stays locked in place.

The Umbrella Repeller

Embrace a fresh new twist on the top knot and try it out with a braid underneath! This style is great for keeping all of your hair off your neck and free from blowing in the wind and plus, it looks super cool! To get this rain defeating look, tip your head upside down and brush out your hair. Grab a section of hair at the nape of your neck and start French braiding (if you find French braiding tricky or you know you won’t be able to figure out how in the world to do it upside down, you can just do a regular braid instead, but make sure to grab a large section of hair to make it thick and noticeable). Tie this with a thin hair tie or hair elastic. Take the remaining locks and pull them into a high ponytail and then twist around to create a messy bun. Secure with clips all the way around and liberally use hairspray!

‘Reigning’ Cats and Dogs - The Classic Chignon

To ensure your look stays regal even in less than royal weather, try a classic chignon. Part your hair down the middle and decide which side you want your chignon to be on. Pull the hair to that side and then create two ponytails – hold one in each hand. Smooth the hair down and tie into a loose knot, wrap one side around to the right and secure with pins. Repeat on the left and finishing with a king’s ransom of hairspray!
