You love your bangs—that is, until it gets humid out and you’ve suddenly got a D.J. Tanner-style puff on your forehead.
Ryan Nickulas, owner and head stylist at New York City’s Ryan Darius Salon, knows it all too well. After years of dealing with his clients’ unfortunate warm-weather hair debacles, he finally nailed the perfect way to keep your bangs in check when temperatures rises. Read on for his advice.
The dog days of summer are around the corner and even though we can’t wait for their arrival, every girl knows what that means for their hair. Nothing zaps a great style faster than humidity, so you will need to meet the humidity head-on with a quick hair fix. Braiding your hair across the front of your head is a simple way to look great, whether it’s 65 or 90 degrees out.
1) Section off bangs from your hairline, to two inches back.
2) Clip the rest of your hair out of the way.
3) Starting with the side you want the braid to flow, divide a small section of hair into three strands and start a basic braid.
4) As you braid, grab small pieces of hair to work into your mini French braid.
5) Twist a hair band around the end.
6) Tuck the braid behind your ear.
