After the Rain Hair

Because flyaways are officially in style.

Picture this: You're out enjoying your day and it starts to rain. Unprepared, you can't protect your hair against the rain and, before you know it, flyaways are popping up left and right. While the damp, textured look may have not been what you're going for, there's no denying that there's something romantic and effortlessly beautiful about the way little face-framing curls pop into place. Inspired by nature and some of the best movie scenes of all times, this perfectly imperfect hairstyle has made its way into mainstream fashion, first showing up on the catwalk, and now being seeing on sidewalks everywhere.

 

How to Achieve the After the Rain Hair Look When There's Not a Cloud in the Sky

Think you may want to get in on the effortlessly chic hairstyle? You'll be happy to know that, with the right L'Oréal Professionnel hair styling products , tips and tricks, you'll look like you've stepped out of a classic in no time.

 

Here's what to do:

Step 1: Create the base of your hairstyle.The undone, after-the-rain hairstyle looks best when paired with updos, messy buns, and ponytails, as these styles pull the majority of your hair out of the way so that your little flyaways will be prominent, instead of getting tangled back up in the rest of your hair. That said, keep it simple and out of your face - a loose Gibson tuck, perhaps. Now, if you really want to keep your hair down, you can always just tuck it behind your ears so that your after-the-rain flyaways will still be free.

Whichever you choose, don't worry about an ultra-sleek finish or finishing with hairspray because the whole point is to look undone.

 

Step 2: Create your flyaways.The key is to not over-do it. And the secret is to frame your face with a few wisps, drawing attention to your finest assets. Simply pull out a few wisps all along your hairline and give them a little twirl to help encourage a bit more texture.

 

Step 3: Lock your look in place.Spraying your flyaways with hairspray is a must. Despite looking au naturel, you want your look to last all day long. Using a can of a strong-hold hairspray that maintains a natural touch, will do just the trick. Designed to lock in style without creating a shellacked look, meaning it will help elongate the life of your look without making your hair look full of product.

 

Easy enough, right? And then there's also always the natural option of standing out in the rain waiting for your movie moment to happen. Either way, you're sure to fall in love with the romantic look that's been worn by some of our very favorite Hollywood bombshells.
