How To Keep Hair Out Of Your Face

Are you tired of hair getting in your face? If so, you’re not alone. On their hair-in-face days, many become extremely frustrated – some even consider chopping off the offending strands. If you’ve had enough of your hair always getting in the way and need a reliable solution, this article is for you! We’ll take a look at a few ways you can keep your hair out of your face. 

Put on A Headband

Putting on a headband is a quick way to pull your hair back, even if it's on the shorter side. Headbands are also a cute, fun accessory that instantly adds a little oomph to your hairstyle. You can choose between fabric or plastic headbands and experiment with a ton of different style options. Did we mention that they’re also incredibly easy to use? Just slip one on and go!

Throw Your Hair into A Ponytail or Bun

Another easy way to keep your hair from getting into your face is to pull it into a bun or ponytail. Want to learn how to get the look? Simply pull your hair back and secure it with a hair tie. You can either stop there or wrap the length of your hair around the base of your ponytail and use a second hair tie to keep your bun in place. Keep in mind that this method only works if your hair is long enough to gather into a ponytail. If your hair is 6 inches or shorter, you’ll have to part your hair into sections and create two or more ponytails instead. 

Wear A Scarf or Bandana

From boho to 50s rockabilly, there are countless ways to tie your hair up with a scarf or bandana. In addition to keeping your hair out of your face, scarves and bandanas give your outfit a fun pop of color. Want a tip? If you have dry or fragile hair, opt for a silk or satin scarf instead of a cotton one. Cotton can suck the moisture from your strands and cause breakage. 

Use Hair Pins and Clips

Hair pins and clips are a fantastic way to keep your hair out of the way and add a little pizazz to your look. Additionally, this method is perfect for hair that’s too short to pull back into a ponytail. All you have to do is pull your hair back or to the side and secure it with your clip - that's it! Hair clips and pins are practical, and they look great. You can rock an eye-catching statement hairpin or keep your accessories simple and subtle. The choice is yours!

Keeping your hair off your face helps you stay focused, prevents your hair from absorbing sweat, and can even keep you safe. Luckily, there are tons of ways you can do it! We hope one of the solutions that we’ve gone over today is exactly what you were looking for. Here’s to the end of unwanted hair-in-face days!
