Club Hair

ebzonixebzonix Posts: 411Registered Users
I've just recently started going out to clubs and I love dancing and shaking it BUT I'm having the hardest time trying to keep my hair on point. I work for a radio station and it requires me to be at many different events during the weekend but my hair gets so shrunken after one night out that the other days it just looks a wreck. I'm trying not to have to keep washing and styling it for each night, and I've been highly considering a curly weave for these summer months when I leave for Nashville in August. Do any of you ladies have any suggestions for styling hair while your in a humid club sweating and shaking it???

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ebz

    How about a twist out? And maybe pulling it over to one side if your hair is long enough. YouTube - ‪Side swoop Twist Out Style‬‏

    A frohawk would also be nice. YouTube - ‪Mae's Chunky Twist-Out Frohawk!‬‏

    I always do wash n gos when I go out to a club, but I bring out the big guns when it comes to product. I use my heaviest products and really slather them on to avoid super shrinkage (KCCC, Ouidad Climate Control Gel, Fantasia IC gel w/ sparkelites). Also I get the least shrinkage and the best club hair if I leave with my hair still slightly damp--maybe 80% dry.

    Blame it on the cell phone...

    Lol thanks a lot. I didn't think about putting on heavy products to keep it weighed down! Thanks a lot,

    Club hair for me is when I play up the volume and put emphasis on the "big" hair. I never wash my hair if I'm going out to the club...it actually looks better if it's a bit dirty (2-3 days post wash). Usually by then you already have shrinkage. which means its not gonna shrink up too much more.

    My "signature" club hair style is to fluff my hair up really big (teasing it in places if needed), taking 1-2 of the goody "ouchless" headbands that's sort of streched out, double them up and put on like a head band, then push my hair over a bit more to one side. If your into the whole flower hair accessory thing, then put one on. I'm not into flowers, but I have a few rinestone things that I add just for some sparkle. Other club styles that I do are frohawks, BAAs, a pompadourish style in the front pulled back into a puff or messy bun, and just plan ole puffs with a cute head band.

    Can I ask what conditioners are the heaviest? Or which thick conditioners work well with different gels??

    I like the BAA too, saw a dude rocking it just this past Sunday! It was amazing.
