While we can try everything in our power to keep frizz at bay, from microfiber towels to hair products for frizz, there are some days when it seems we just can’t win. Instead of trying to come up with a quick fix for how to get rid of frizzy hair, embrace its natural texture. On the days when you need to make frizz work for you, turn to one of these simple and cute hairstyles for frizzy hair. Whether your locks are long or short, thick or fine, curly or straight, you’ll find at least a few looks that will work for you.
These easy hairstyles for frizzy hair are the perfect antidote to hard hair days.
1. Clip It
Tame frizzy flyaway hair with a clip or bobby pin. There are so many cute accessories to choose from, and you don’t have to choose just one. Create a chic, fun, and frizz-free look by stacking multiple clips, pins, or barrettes along your part, around your face, or to secure a half-up style. To ensure every hair stays in place, spray the hair with a bit of hairspray before pinning it and finish with our Instant De-Frizzer.
2. Messy Bun
Hot take: A bun is better with a bit of frizz. No, really, it’s true. When you want to manufacture the “perfect” messy bun, a little frizz is the finishing touch. It gives the look that undone feel it needs to appear effortless. To fill your updo with volume and help it hold, give your hair a boost of Dry Volume Blast before you pull it up.
3. Fishtail Braid
Braids were made for frizzy hair. A fishtail braid is masterful at managing a frizzy mane because it smooths and contains hair in a secure and cool style. If you have a lot of layers or baby hairs that like to break away from the braid, spray it with No Frizz Humidity Shield, a protective finishing spray that will prevent humidity hair and keep from letting flyaways escape the braid.
4. Add a Head Scarf
Whether you have long or short frizzy hair, a head scarf is an essential accessory to have on hand. Wear it one of the multiple ways depending on your mood; as a bandana, rolled up and tied around your head like a headband, or knotted around a bun or ponytail. First, spritz your hair with our No Frizz Instant De-Frizzer to soften strands and add shine, then throw in the head scarf, and you’re good-to-go.
5. Sleek Ponytail
If you’re looking for easy hairstyles for frizzy hair you can turn to in a pinch, a high ponytail is a perfect answer. Plus, there’s something extra powerful about a sleek ponytail. Granted, you’ll need long hair to achieve this look. If you can check that box, then start with damp hair and apply our Nourishing Styling Cream if you have thick hair or our Vanishing Oil if you have fine hair. Use a gentle wide-tooth comb to comb through it and pull it back into a pony. This hair product will smooth your strands to help you achieve a sleek, sophisticated look and keep your hair frizz-free, so you can focus on putting your best face forward.
6. Fresh Out of the
ShowerThe “wet hair” look, made popular by Kim K a few years ago, has been seen on every celeb since and is a simple heat-free style to emulate. Because the look begins wet and uses quite a bit of hair product, it’s one of the ideal hairstyles for thick frizzy hair, but it also works on fine hair. Start with our No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. Once you’re out of the shower, spritz your locks with our Weightless Styling Spray if you have fine hair or our Nourishing Styling Cream if you have thick hair and gently style with a comb. Embrace any natural texture you may have and walk out the door wet.
7. Top It
OffIt’s no secret that the answer to a bad hair day is a good hat. And there are so many good hats (beanies, flat brim fedoras, straw hats, boaters, the list goes on) that will not only cover up an extra-frizzy mane but also complete your look. Plus, a hat goes well over any hair type, whether you have curly, straight, or wavy hair, short hair, or long hair. So, give your hair a break and reach for a cap—that’s it!
8. Braided Bun
A combination of our favorite two looks, what could be better? Throw in two french braids, one on either side of your part, but stop braiding when you get behind your ear on either side. Then, gather your remaining hair into a low bun, messy or neat, your choice. This is an easy hairstyle that will keep frizz on lock. Plus, a braided bun can be done on both wet hair and dry hair, so whenever you’re running out the door, it can work for you.
If you find yourself constantly asking, “Why is my hair so frizzy?” it could be a sign of a larger issue, such as hair damage. It’s probably time to find some hair products online to step up your hair care routine. While these hairstyles are great, you can have less frizzy hair days in general with our No Frizz Collection.
