The topknot never fails when it comes to battling frizz. The look is super versatile and can be worn half up/half down or pulled completely off the face for more humidity-fighting power. Use a humidity-proof hairspray like OGX Smoothing Shea Sleek Humidity Blocking Hairspray ($7) to keep wispy strands in place.

This slicked-back style will help tame any degree of frizz. Keep your low bun extra sleek by using a humidity defying gel that offers strong hold. We like Ouidad's Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel ($60).

The half braid takes care of the pieces along your face that have a tendency to spring up at the first sign of moisture. Give the look a little extra insurance with a dab of Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream ($13).

Woman With Side Braid

You can never go wrong with a quick and easy side braid. This fun style keeps your hair off of your neck and face, leaving you both cool and frizz-free throughout the day. Top the look off with a decorative headband ($10) if you're feeling fancy

Cornrows (sometimes referred to as boxer braids) are the cream of the crop when it comes to protecting your hair from unwanted frizz. Whether you wear one, two, or several braids, the style is sure to keep your hair under control and looking good for the entire day. A comb like Diane's Ionic Anti-Static Rat Tail Comb ($3) will help you section your hair off for easy braiding.

If the conditions are really bad, why even bother with dry hair? Instead, embrace the wet look, and pull your hair back into a messy low braid. Tie it off at the base of your neck with an elastic hair tie like this one from Goody ($4), and let the tail run free.
