Beating Spring Showers - Humidity Proof Hair
May 05, 2010
Even though it's May, Spring seems to be delivering all sorts of showers just a little bit late. All of our May weddings, events, graduation parties and picnics are requiring serious humidity-proof hair, as showers hang in the distance, threatening our sunny plans. Here are our top three products for fighting humidity, and keeping a style looking great all day long:
|Cutler's Volumizing Spray is by far my favorite humidity proofing product, and it doesn't even have humidity in the title! My biggest problems with humidity are one either my hair totally flattening and losing curl, or my hair poofing and frizzing out of control. Cutler's Volumizing Spray both controls these factors in daily styles, but also provides nurturing ingredients and heat protection that keep your hair healthy, reducing these effects from the beginning! Purchase it here for $21.|
|Bed Head Some Like It Hot product range includes three products that are all uniquely designed to protect against humidity while styling. Including a shampoo, conditioner and weather-neutralizing serum, these products not only protect against frizz from humidity, but also from the damage of heat and from color loss in the sun. Perfect for beach-y summers and sunny weekends! Purchase here, $16-17.|
|The Blow Weather Girl Climate Neutralizing Complex is a miracle product created by Blow, a company that prides itself on creating products for people who heat style daily. Gentle and nutritive on over-heated hair, Weather Girl locks out humidity by coating hair, while remaining weightless and protecting from frizz. Purchase here for $22.|

Humidity Proof Styles with Rodney Cutler
June 24, 2009
We spend emmense amounts of time- and product- trying to keep our styles under control when humidity gets the best of us. We- the Beauty of a Site Staff- find ourselves in the middle of Illinois, where humidity reigns from May to August, plotting to ruin our styles for 4 long months. But thanks to Rodney Cutler, Cutler Hair Care creator and celebrity runway stylist, we've tripped across one of our favorite humidity proof styles yet: To get this trendy twist on a classic French twist, follow Rodney Cutler's advice below:
- Prep hair with Cutler Volumizing Spray from roots to ends & rough dry, focusing on directing the hair up to create volume at the crown.
- Using a tail comb, create a deep side part.
- Back comb all of the hair behind the ears to create volume at the crown and emphasize the head shape.
- Secure the hair into a low side ponytail on the same side as the side part allowing for a loose/messy texture throughout the crown and a bit smoothing around the edges.
- Using either elastic string or a thin ribbon, fold the hair of the ponytail back and forth into itself to create the "bun/chignon" shape.
