Whether you enjoy the colder days or not, there’s no denying that a change in seasons provides a great opportunity to mix up your hair styles. If the declining temperatures and rainy weather have you feeling down, there’s no better way to give yourself a pick-me-up than to experiment with a fun new ‘do! Winter is all about wind-proofing your hair and making sure it holds up even in the most brutal weather. Oh, and let’s not forget the addition of beanies! Looking for some inspo when it comes to styling your locks for winter? You’ve come to the right place!
Wavy bobs are definitely trending right now and there’s no better time to make the big chop than winter. Bobs are low maintenance and perfect for any occasion – whether you are dressing up or dressing down! What’s even better is that with less hair, there’s less chance of it being ruined by the unpredictable weather. If you’ve been considering going short, winter is a great time to do so.
Barely there waves
If you’d prefer to keep your locks long, soft barely there waves are a great minimalist hairstyle for those cold winter mornings when your just don’t feel like putting in much effort (but still want to look put together!). It requires minimal styling, and adding a few soft layers around your face really adds to that ‘barely there’ effect. It’s also a great hairstyle to wear underneath a knitted beanie for those particularly chilly days.
We’re not sure whether it was the self-cut fringes during quarantine (hint: don’t cut them yourself!), but bangs are still having a real moment! In the warmer months, bangs can become quite annoying, sticking to your sweaty forehead – no thank you – but winter is a great time to experiment with them. It’s a good way to significantly change up your look without committing to a big chop. However, we definitely recommend seeing a professional hair stylist instead of attempting a DIY job!
Low ponytails are the *ultimate* lazy morning hair style. They take only seconds but still allow you to change up the style – wavy, curled, or straight pony. Whether you like to slick them back or leave them stylishly messy, you can even add scrunchies or hair clips to take them to the next level. Not only that, but you can still fit a beanie or a hood over the top if needed!
Half up half down
Winter is the best time to style your hair down – as it gets hotter, we all generally want to put our hair up! Securing the top half of your hair in a messy bun and leaving the rest down (waves look *amazing* with this hair style), is a great ‘do for this time of year. Want to change it up even more? Tie a hair scarf around your messy bun for an even cuter half up half down look.
