14 celebrity-approved hairstyles to counter the monsoon’s humidity

Don't let it rain on your parade

By ELLE India  June 19th, 2018

With the rainy season upon us, it goes without saying that your hair is going to react — and not in a good way. The high humidity levels will make your hair frizzier than usual, and we’re predicting a lot of bad hair days on the horizon. While anti-frizz products and the desi coconut oil are the best way to give humidity a run for its money, we also recommend changing your usual hairstyle and opting for something that will not make you look a zombie. From Deepika Paudkone to Sonam Kapoor, save these celebrity-approved hairstyles for rainy days… literally.

While girls with medium to long hair can try various hairstyles like the mermaid fishtail braid, the wrap-around high ponytail and topknot buns, those with shorter length can opt for loose chignons and low buns. Check out our gallery for stylish hairstyles that will take you from day to night, while keeping your frizzy hair at bay.

Messy fishtail mermaid braid

If you have unevenly-cut hair, opt for a messy fishtail mermaid braid like Madhuri's. Keep the braid loose so that it looks like it's on purpose, and use pins to push back your bangs so that the attention is on your face.
