How to Keep Your Lovely Locks from Blowing Around While Driving

One of the most obvious and conventional ways to maintain your dazzling do is to hold the hair down by pinning it back/up or tying it, such as in a bun or ponytail. Keeping the hair from flowing freely and out of the path of the blowing wind goes makes a world of difference in keeping your hair from blowing and tangling.

Another method to keep your hair maintained is to cover it with a scarf or head wrap that can be secured under your chin. Use one made with silk or a similar light fabric that can act as a shield without weighing down on your noggin. If done right, you can pull of a delightfully vintage look.

If you know you’re going to be riding in a convertible later the same day, consider making your hairstyle one that anticipates the impending gusts. For instance, raise it in a tight French roll or pin it up in a messy bun using a claw clip.

In the event that you absolutely have to keep your hairstyle a certain way but can’t bear to drive with the top up, consider spending a couple bucks on a mesh wrap or soaking it in gel/hairspray.

If you know you’re going to be driving in a convertible frequently–say, for instance, you own one–then you might want to contemplate changing your haircut altogether and going with one that won’t be a chore to maintain whenever you drive. A pixie cut is a fabulous choice.

Women aren’t the only ones with long or perfectly-stylized hair, though, and some of these aforementioned solutions might not work for a typical man. In most instances, hair gel and/or a secure-able hat are the way to go.
