I’m sharing the second part of my curly hair traveling guide with you: Today it’s all about to question what hairstyles to wear while traveling. To answer this question I shot a hairstyle diary while I was in Barcelona.
As I’ve already mentioned in my first curly hair traveling guide, I suggest you to either wash your curls the day before travel day or on the travel day. In case you have a long flight ahead of you, I suggest you to wash your curls the day before you travel. Since the flight from Zurich to Barcelona doesn’t even take 2 hours, I washed my curls on the day we travelled there. Once we’ve landed in Barcelona I put my curls into a half-updo, like I did the following day:
Day 1: Daytime
Whenever possible I like to wear my curls down. But when traveling to a city I just don’t like to have all of my curls down (as this can sometimes get quite hot), which is why I put them into an easy half-updo. After discovering Barcelona we spent some time at our hotel’s pool, where I put my curls into a messy bun.
Day 1: Evening
Once I’ve put them into a bun, there no going back to another hairstyle, but I styled it up a bit for the evening. To not only make your bun more elegant, but to also get your curls to easily stay within the bun, use a donut.
Day 2: Daytime
When I’m on vacation, I usually don’t wash my hair in the morning, because I’d rather have them look really nice for the evenings. Which is exactly what I did on our second day in Barcelona.
Day 2: Evening
If I had to chose a favorite hairstyle, this would definitely be it – I absolutely love to wear my curls down! Unfortunately I don’t like how often I’d have to wash them to always have them look this way…
Day 3: Daytime
This picture was taken on the day we flew back to Zurich. During the flight, I exchanged the hair clip with a hair tie, because it’s really uncomfortable to sit back in an airplane seat with a hair clip.
Stay tuned for my third post about traveling with curly hair, in which I’ll be talking about what hair-related things you should pack!
