#WetHairDontCare: quick hairstyles for when you gotta wash and run!


It has not stopped raining for so long, I don’t call an Uber anymore, I call an Ark. Plus, guys, I’m a late riser. Ever seen those guys on TV shows brushing their teeth and driving on the highway at the same time: I’m that guy (ok, I’m that girl.)

To make my life easier, and yours too hopefully, here’s a bunch of my go-to hairstyles for when I get up late and have no time to sit back and let my hair dry because, well, I’m in a rush! It’s a busy, busy world these days. Hairstyling time needs to match the pace, I think.

These hair tutorials will help you perfect your damp hair day style through the rainy season and the forever lethargy!

1. Messy Low Bun

Too simple and perfect for Monday when you want to look sober (but are hopefully still drunk from Sunday brunch.)

The How-to: gather your hair in a low ponytail with a rubber band and start twisting it around itself. Re-inforce the bun structure by fixing a bobby pin into the fold during each round. Keep going till your full ponytail is twisted into a bun.

What it goes with: wear this with a shirt and pencil skirt for the workweek and jazz up this sombre style up with a choker and off-shoulder top during the weekends.


2. Sleek Top-Knot

While it sucks to have wet hair dripping down your shirt, I highly recommend only putting your hair up in loose buns when its damp. There’s two advantages to this: a) your hair will dry faster and b) the loose bun will give you naturally just-out-of-bed hair. But, loose doesn’t mean you gotta look messy.

The How-To: for this chic style, simply hold your hair in a high ponytail, and twist your hair around till it makes a bun. Fix that with bobby pins and a clutcher.

What it goes with: this hairstyle looks great with every thing, really.


3. Side Partition Ponytail

Quick and easy, I promised and nothing brings a stylish edge to your look faster than a sophisticated side-ways ponytail. Plus, it hides forehead zits better than concealer! 😉

The How-To: Part your hair sidewise — left or right is your discretion.  Do this using just your hands so you don’t get comb craters in your hair. Tie your mane in a semi-loose ponytail; use a soft scrunchie for this so it doesn’t tug at your hair.

What it goes with: I like wearing this style with collared shirts and midi-dresses.


4. Front Lock Twists

This be my favourite hairstyle, and it’s also easiest. Plus, it’s adorable! It also works well for a day to dinner look. The cutesy factor locked in with this Grecian throwback.

The How-to: all you need to do is twist your front locks and pin them with a cute clip or a small bobby pin. So time effective, yes? You can also add a bun to this style if you want to wear your hair up.

What it goes with: dresses and twists go together like, heaven. 🙂


5. One sided bunch

If you have fine hair and hate how thin it looks when its wet, create the illusion of volume with this style.

The How-To: Again, don’t use a comb. Use your fingers, backbrush your hair, tease them but don’t tangle them. Once you’ve achieved satisfactory volume, tie those messy strands in a side ponytail.

What it goes with: This looks fabulous with a boho head chain.
I do advise against braiding your hair when its wet because that could stress out your delicate locks and lead to hair fall.
