If you’re working with a lot of unwanted volume atop your head, you’re in luck - we’ve put together a definitive guide on the trendiest hairstyles for frizzy hair so you can channel your inner sleek goddess. Whether it’s humidity (hair’s worst enemy) or the good ol’ frizzy hair gene, we think you should let your frizz flag fly… so hang tight, because we’re dishing some serious styling inspiration.

Frizzy Hair 101: What Provokes Fluffy Hair?

Before you can win the fight against frizzy hair, you should have a general understanding of why your tresses appear large and in charge. Here’s a little hair science: frizz occurs when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised, allowing moisture to pass through and swell the strands. As a result, your hair appears dry and frizzy instead of smooth and defined. Simply, frizzy hair is dehydrated hair. Here are 6 top culprits of why your hair might be looking thirsty AF.

  • You are literally thirsty (not drinking enough water).
  • You’re using an unsuitable shampoo that is drying out your strands.
  • The oils and styling products you’ve opted for aren’t penetrating the hair shaft.
  • The oil your scalp naturally secretes is not making it down the strands of hair (which is very common with curly hair types) - thank DNA.
  • You aren’t using the best conditioning products according to your hair’s porosity level.
  • You have over-processed hair that has been damaged by chemicals - we’re talking about you, colour-change addicts.

5 Hairstyles For Frizzy Hair To Tame Your Mane

Bring on the humidity. These hairstyles for frizzy hair will enable you to work with what you’ve got in the most gorge way possible.

1. Messy Bun With Headband

When it comes to frizzy hairstyles, it doesn’t get much easier than this. The secret to taming flyaway hair lies in a little before-styling prep: spritz Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Frizz Control Styling Spray on damp hair prior to throwing your hair up. Not only does this product smooth flyaways, it’s also infused with lavender and smells delish (mmm). Pick a chunky, colourful headband for a chic look that is minimal effort while hiding any remaining frizz.

2. Sleek Straight

If you thought you couldn’t rock sleek, straight hair due to frizz, we’ve got good news for you… you most certainly can, thanks to a very winning duo: Matrix Mega Sleek Iron Smoother defrizzing spray teamed with the L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod gives you the illusion of glass hair (hair so smooth it creates a glass-like finish). The defrizzing spray protects your hair against heat damage whilst the steampod uses a continuous flow of high pressure steam to give you the sleekest strands you ever did see!

3. Tousled Cool-Girl Curls

For tamed yet tousled curls, you need to show your strands a little discipline. The Kérastase Anti-Frizz Discipline range allows you to whip your unruly tresses into shape so your curls will appear tamed, yet voluminous. It’s the curly strand aesthetic that evokes hair envy, we’re in.

4. Side Ponytail

If you’re running a tight schedule and you have limited time to style your ‘do, this hairstyle will work wonders on your frizzy hair. Since the style itself takes almost no time (10 minutes), what we’re after here is the red carpet-worthy shine. Prep wet strands with L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Original for heat protection and a lustrous shine that will make this look anything but basic. Then, part hair down the middle and secure with an elastic at the side of your head. Next, put some gentle waves in a few tendrils of hair from your ponytail with a flat iron and a couple face-framing strands for a super easy, frizz-taming look with an edge.

5. The Messy Half-Up

What is a list of frizzy hairstyles without one that embraces that oomph? To begin, you will want to tame your frizz just a wee bit with serum - we love L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Liss Control Plus because it keeps tresses in check for up to 24 hours whilst providing juuuust the perfect amount of volume. Next, gather all the hair from ear to ear and tie it into a high half ponytail. Then, take a thin section of hair from your half ponytail and wrap around the base of your ponytail and secure with an elastic. There you have it, playful perfection.

What’s In Your Shower? Anti-Frizz Hair Heroes

Your hair battle can be won when approached like a pro. The experts say it all starts in the shower. What products you’re harbouring in your shower caddy will be your first weapon to fight off the frizz. Try sticking to a good range like Redken Frizz Dismiss. Complete with shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and a leave-in smoothing control cream, this is a revolutionary collection that will keep rebellious locks on lock-down.

If you want to pamper your hair in hydrating argan oil (don’t we all) then the L'Oréal Professional Mythic Oil range is calling your name. As luxurious as it sounds, this line aims to give your hair the good drink it’s been asking for. With these hairstyles for frizzy hair, there’s no reason to bear any shame about your unruly locks. We gotchu, girl!
