What to do when your blow dry gets caught in the rain

Like Cinderella staying out after midnight, all the artifice breaks down when my blow dry senses a hint of moisture in the air.

Be it a humid summer day or a rainy winter morning, I have totally wasted my time doing my hair. No-one would know I had set my alarm early in order to wash and blow dry my hair as I arrive looking like I’ve slept in and run my fingers through my hair backwards.

And days like today are in between. A good umbrella or hat might get me there or I could drown on the way out.

So here are some of my tips for salvaging your hard work. Don’t just give up and settle for a middle of the road ponytail, a quick bathroom stop and you can transform.

Fuzzy ends? – Carry bobby pins.

With just one pin you can use a section of hair to tie a pony tail like this. Just one pin!! With more pins the possibilities increase exponentially.

Fuzzy fringe? – Try a braid.

French braid your hair around your hairline taking in sections at the front only to hide away that fringe. Finish it behind your ear for a neat finish. If you can’t braid your hair just part your hair and twist the front section along the hairline, using a couple of pins to keep it in place. Too easy.

All your hair is a mess?

Combine both techniques and you’re all set.

Looking like a drowned rat?

Scrape all your hair up into a high pony and pin it into a neat bun. Kind of like a genie knot. Simply irresistible.


Good luck out there in the rain and good luck for the Melbourne Cup. Any tips for the winner?

Would love to see your hair pics!
