    Dressing for humidity?

    Advertisements
    I'm going to be in Nashville in a few weeks for a conference. I'm from Alaska, living in Arizona. I'm not used to humidity, and have never spent any decent amount of time anywhere that is humid.

    Help! What should I bring? And how do I keep my hair under control?

    Dress is business casual, with a fancy awards dinner one night.

    i live in az too, and im from ohio. so i know both. i suggest clothes that breathe. light cottons. nothing heavy. you'll probably be indoors mostly though. as for your hair, i suggest light hair spray. and depending on your hair length, and the humidity, i would keep it straightened, or in a ponytail. if you really want to get fancy, try some frizz serum.
    your living in az, so you know about heat! think of the humidity as wet heat. its really not that much different clothing wise.

    I live in east tn and lived in Nashville for a few months but the weather isn't much different. Most of my clothes are light cotton shirts and dresses and shorts and stuff. I think if you wear dresses and skirts are good for the heat and a light shirt and you should be fine

    As for humidity and your hair, my hair gets frizzy very easily with the humidity but if I use my straightner that usually works. I also found some really awesome frizz stuff that I would use if I didn't use my straightner but they don't make it anymore but you could try Something like that too. Humidity hasn't been too bad done here lately but it also has been in the 70s the past week. Today it was 90 and not too humid but I dunno about the rest of the week

    It is DEATH HUMID in New York right now. It never gets crazy hot like the south but it definitely is humid. Cotton, light clothes are usually a plus and hair...well, I never got hair + humidity down so I'm usually in a ponytail all summer haha.

    Pony tail, french braid, just pulled back in a clip. I am from the south and go to the east coast where in the summer it is just as bad as it is in the south. That is what I do with my hair.

    Definitely sweat approved colors, because if you're not used to humidity, you're going to sweat buckets. No way around that :-( Cotton.

    I have really straight hair that goes absolutely flat in humidity, so if I'm even thinking of trying to style it, I usually use Biolage Thermal Active Setting spray on my hair either before blowdrying or curling.

    Stay in the A/C :-)
