When the cold air of winter blows in, our blowouts suffer – and turn into piles of frizzy hair. Sure, most of the time you can hide it with a fluffy beanie, but what do you do when you want to look your best? When you need hair-spiration, check out our easy winter hairstyle ideas!
Everyone wants effortless-looking loose curls for their holiday parties, but the weather can make this seem impossible. To combat frizz and dried out hair, use a nourishing hair oil after your shower to moisturize your locks. The UMA Oils Hair Oil from Neiman Marcus is made with clarifying extracts of grapefruit and lemon to remove impurities and stimulate hair follicles for healthy growth. It also contains hibiscus to revive hair, grape seed oil for healthy hair and jojoba to make your hair shine among other ingredients. After generously applying this to clean hair, let your hair air dry and then curl like usual. Brush out the curls and spray with an extra-strength hairspray, like the Abba Pure Curl Finish Hair Spray from Beauty Brands that is designed to hold curls all day.
This look can work with either curled or straightened hair. Simply gather hair from your ears and back to pull hair into a half ponytail, securing with an elastic. From there, loosely braid your hair in big pieces and secure with another ponytail on the bottom. This easy look keeps hair out of your face (especially helpful on windy days!) and looks beautiful.
Twisted Top Knot
For a glamorous update on the messy bun, try the twisted top-knot. Pull hair into an elastic at the top of your head. From there, separate hair into two sections. Take the first section and divide it in two. Then twist the two sections around each other and secure with an elastic. Repeat this on the other side. Now you should have two sections of twisted hair; wind them in a coil on top of your head until they are intertwined in a beautiful top-knot. Secure with bobby pins and hair spray and you’re ready to go!
