One of the most common advices that people with frizzy hair receive is to ‘tame’ or ‘smoothen’ their hair. Thus, people tend to flat iron their frizzy hair without mercy and use a ton of anti-frizz hair product or hairspray in the process. The problem with frizzy hair is that it is not really easy to tame because sometimes, after styling the hair, the frizz can return and make your hair look like a bird’s nest!
So, as a frizzy-haired girl, what can you do? First of all, you don’t always need to work against your frizz; you can always work with it, i.e. embrace your frizzy hair and make the most of it instead of fighting it. In case of special occasions, when you really want to look your best, you should avoid fighting your frizzy hair problems. Instead, make your frizzy hair the foundation for your hairstyle.
Having a frizz can be good
Yes it can, because it gives you the supremely stylish ‘messy’ look that most of the celebrities sport these days. So, frizz is not always a bad thing, even in cases of hair updos for special occasions, it can add the much-needed texture and volume! So if you have a special occasion coming up then you should choose from amongst hairstyles which require your hair to be frizzy, i.e. hairstyles which wouldn’t work on smooth and ‘controlled’ hair! Are bob hairstyles trending again? Well, the answer is a definite ‘Yes’! If you have a bob hairstyle then you can switch it up on special occasions by going for a tousled or ‘bed-head’ look. A textured wavy bob can look really stylish and it goes well with dresses. So ditch the smooth and sleek bob as the frizz and extra texture can make this hairstyle more interesting.
If needed, you can use a volumizing mousse for extra hold. You can also use a large barrel hair curler to add some defined waves to your textured bob. For girls with long hair, frizz can be used to create a beehive updo.
This hairstyle works best on dirty hair or hair that has not been washed for 2-3 days. Just use a dry shampoo at the roots to get rid of the greasy look and use a fine-toothed comb to backcomb or tease your hair at the crown.
The frizz in your hair would naturally add some texture to it, therefore you wouldn’t need to tease it too much and end up damaging your hair. Once you’ve got a satisfactory volume, you can go ahead and sweep your hair into a messy bun or try an intricate updo if you’re good at working with your hair. For these styles, it is always advisable to go for a messy updo instead of an uptight perfection. If your hair is long enough then you can have it teased, puffed up and held in place using a claw clip and for the other half of your hair, you can create a messy fishtail braid.
This unruly hairstyle looks good in case of formal occasions and can be combined with a fancy top or a dress. The messy look of the fishtail braid allows you to free yourself from trying to catch a glimpse of your hairstyle every now and then in the mirror and worrying about whether your hair has frizzed up or not!
