A lightweight leave-in conditioner or moisturizer is a good first step to condition hair and prepare it for styling. Styling cream adds some texture to wet hair and makes it easy to handle.

One easy style for wet hair involves spraying the hair with a sea salt spray, and then scrunching it to enhance any natural curls. Pull part of the hair to the side, and clip it up with bobby pins or a barrette. For a style that takes a little more skill and effort, create a fishtail, French braid or another style of braid to keep hair away from the face.

Other styles that keep hair out of the face are low buns at the nape of the neck or high buns near the top of the head. Ponytails are another great alternative to a bun or braid. Many styles of ponytails include a deep side part with hair wrapped around your ponytail to create a sleek and different casual look.
