It’s been raining for days here in New York and it’s not looking like it will let up anytime soon (at least it’s not snow, right?). Day after damp and soggy day of this stuff can be detrimental to anyone’s mood. Add a bad hair week and icky commutes on top of that and we ladies are one drive-by splash away from a meltdown.

So what’s a girl to do?

How about we tackle the bad hair situation with some super pretty pieces that are sure to make you feel great–rain or shine?

Instead of just throwing your hair into a ponytail and forgetting about it, add an extra touch as a little pick me up of sorts. Whether it’s a ponytail holder with personality (like #6) or cheery bobby pins (#2), something simple can inject a little life into an otherwise dreary day.

I’m currently partial to messy ponies or buns with an attention-grabbing headband. It’s that laid-back, bedhead kind of look with a fun twist. Quick and easy to do, it still manages to make it look as if you put in a little extra effort–all while wrangling your crazy frizz or unmanageable curls. Similar to headbands, turbans (#5) are a trend that I’ve been really unsure of, but I’m willing to try it out styled the way it is shown above.

Another really easy but really cute way to combat your bad hair is with a hat. I love it with loose waves or a messy braid like the looks shown here.

The easiest way to fight a bad hair day is to work with your hair instead of against it. Don’t try to tame your mess! Leave it wild and add a cute accessory. You’ll be much happier in the end!
