As we enter into the thick of monsoon season in Thailand, there’s no predicting when you’ll get caught in the midst of a storm when you’re on your way to work or meeting up with friends. For those unexpected encounters with strong wind and rain, you’re going to need the perfect no-fuss hairstyle that can withstand any weather condition. Ditch the straightener and curling iron this monsoon season and embrace your hair’s natural beauty with these four flexible hairstyles:
The pixie cut is probably the most intimidating hairstyle to try out for the first time, but the results can be a total game-changer. Best suited for square, heart and oval face shapes and bold personalities, the pixie offers so much style for so little effort on your part—a bit of pomade or a subtle perm is the most you'll need for styling— and this haircut will also dry quickly if you get it wet in the rain.
If you can’t quite say goodbye to your long hair, consider adding in some long layers for volume. This hairstyle is suitable for pretty much all face shapes and gives off an irresistibly sexy and vivacious vibe. As a bonus, if you get a digital perm with your layered cut, rainwater will activate the waves, creating that perfect beachy look. If you want a more polished look, simply add some hair product or oil to smooth over that frizz for a look that will last.
As a happy medium between the pixie cut and long layers, go for a shoulder-length bob. A bob is a great option for anyone looking for a fun and flirty hairstyle for midsummer. With the bob, you can choose to go for a razor-sharp cut in any direction to perfectly shape your face. Or, even throw some layers and perm in there for added volume and texture.
