I’ve learnt how to control frizz in my curly hair but sometimes the weather just isn’t on your side.
The humidity has hit peak levels lately and my normal styling efforts are being pushed to their limits. On regular days I could wear my hair out but not in this weather.
I’ve been styling my hair wet and wearing braids constantly. I also have some super quick and easy curly hairstyles that only take a few minutes to do. These styles are perfect for when you thought you could wear your hair out but decide halfway through the day that you need an updo.
These curly hairstyles are also the ideal cover for hair that really should have been washed but you just couldn’t face it. (Tell me I’m not the only one who needs to psych themselves up to wash their hair? The struggle is real!)
Next time the humidity hits record levels, choose one of these curly hairstyles and you can ride out the day in style saying, “what humidity?” and feel smug knowing that your hair is under control.

THE BRAIDED TOP KNOT
This braided top knot tutorial is one of my go-to styles. It’s pretty popular as it was shared so many times on Pinterest that it was included in Pinterest’s hair trends for the year. I don’t believe in trends, but I know I will be wearing this hairstyle in my curls every summer. It’s a classic that has enough detail to make it look like you went to a lot of effort, but really it’s so quick to do.
