We were super stoked that Shaun and Seagull were included in this Bustle.com post about dealing with your hot looks when rain and humidity are drowning your style. THNX Bustle!
If you wake up to rainy skies, it's more than acceptable to rock a ponytail and zero makeup. (As it is any other day, obvs.) But if you have an event to attend, or simply want to feel more put together, then you might be interested in some ways to stay looking great in the rain.
After all, there's nothing like a downpour and a touch of humidity to make things difficult. Apart from melting makeup, you'll likely have frizz to contend with, as well as possible damp strands. (If you forget your umbrella, as I am wont to do.)
That's why the only thing you should keep in mind on a rainy day is the word simple. "Less is more on this day," says makeup artist and salon owner Brandy Gomez-Duplessis, in an email to Bustle. Not only will simpler makeup be less likely to run and smear, but it'll make quick touchups 100 times easier.
To start things off, I suggest popping off to the store to stock up on waterproof products. Get thyself a waterproof mascara, a humidity-defying cream blush, and that umbrella. Then read on for exactly what to do for great hair and makeup — even when it's raining.
If your hair wants to frizz up in the rain, go ahead and use it to your advantage. "Let your hair texture work for for you: With the right products, wavy and curly hair can can actually be optimized during wet weather," says Shaun SureThing, co-owner of Seagull Salon NYC, in an email to Bustle. "I've concocted my own tonics made up of coconut oil and essential oils of bergamot, vetiver, and rose water that I use in humid weather after blow dry styling to compliment the weather rather than fight it." Genius.
