<br />Windy Day Hairstyles for Curls<br />A brisk breeze feels great on the perfect autumn day, but it can wreak havoc on a good hair day. While no hairstyle is completely wind-proof, these curly hairstyles for windy days will keep you looking stylish, even if the weather’s determined to turn your day upside down.<br />Curly Half-Up Half-Down<br />The best of both worlds, curly half-up half-down hairstyles ensure your hair stays out of your face in windy conditions while still showing off your beautiful curls. When in doubt, you can always pack an accessory like a headscarf or satin headband to add some pizzaz (and practicality) to your look!<br />Grab and Twirl<br />For a casual hairstyle that’s quick and easy, reach for a hinge-style hair clip made specifically for curls, such as our Made For Curls™ XL Claw Clips. Use a detail brush to gather all the finer, loose curls around your forehead and temples. Then, twist them once into a handful of hair at the back of your head.<br />Then, tuck the gathered hair into the middle of an open clip, adjust for comfort, and enjoy a hairstyle that will keep up with your busiest day. For added support, or if you’ll be outside for an extended period, try knotting a scarf or headband over your effortless, curly bun.<br />The Pineapple<br />Well known within the curl community, the pineapple is a super easy and protective hairstyle that will keep your twists out of your face and looking good all day long. Prep strands with your favorite Ouidad styler and gather hair to the top of your head. Finish this iconic look with a cute scrunchie and add a satin scarf for style, protection, and to keep those curls intact.<br />Curly Braided Hairstyles<br />One of the most well-known ways to keep the wind from blowing a hairstyle (literally) is a simple yet versatile braid. A must-know technique for those with curls, braiding helps protect hair against dryness and environmental damage. Here are two go-to tips for braided hairstyles with curly hair.<br />Natural Braided Updo<br />For a unique take on the updo, try a single center braid. Once you secure the end of the braid with a hair elastic or a volume-friendly option like Made For Curls™ XL Coil Ties, bend the braid back over the top of your head. Use bobby pins or other fasteners to secure the braid, finger-combing the end or teasing out a few pieces to let natural texture show through.<br />Double French Braid Pigtails<br />This fresh, fun style is great for pairing with your favorite casual outfits and giving a more elevated take on the youthful classic. Divide hair into two sections, braiding along your temple and side of your head, securing each braid near the nape of your neck.<br />Depending on your hair length, you can also try leaving the ends unbraided. This will offer a beautiful contrast between tidy wind-proof braids and a gorgeous pop of curls behind your shoulders. Hint: Use a touch of Advanced Climate Control® Featherlight Styling Cream on your finished braids to keep flyaways locked down, or opt for a satin-lined headband for extra style and shaping. <br />High-Pony With Curls<br />A high pony with curls is a can’t-miss option for a night on the town or a special event, such as a birthday or anniversary dinner. Brush back your hair and fasten it tightly with a clip or hair elastic. Once your ponytail is at the desired height, it’s time to highlight those sensational curls. A quick finger-comb and scrunch move with a dab of Volumizing Jelly will make your high ponytail hairstyle with puff picture-perfect all day or evening-long. To add some glam for a girls' night out, a few sparkling gem barrettes or hair glitter on your puff can transform this look from day to evening.<br />For Added Volume<br />To get the most volume possible, place the base of your high pony on your crown: The highest point on the back curve of your head. This allows your curls—whether naturally loose and wavy or tight and coiled—room to show themselves off.<br />If your hair texture is fine-to-medium, you can start with damp or wet hair for the best finished look. For medium-to-thick hair textures, try styling your ponytail while it's fully dry, using your favorite styling cream or gel to prevent wisps and curls from escaping. For the dryer, cooler months, we love using the Advanced Climate Control® Frizz-Fighting Touch-Up Balm to help fight frizz and flyaways, and to keep your curls looking and feeling refreshed!<br />Even if the autumn breeze or winter wind is working overtime to kill your good hair vibes, achieving and keeping your curly hairstyle intact throughout windy days is easier than you might think.

They'll help you hold your own against mother nature the next time the wind picks up, keeping you selfie-ready no matter what blows your way.
