How to style your hair in winter

Hair Trends To Wear This Season

When the weather gets chilly, it’s the little things that motivate us to get out of bed. Like that new winter coat you’ve been waiting to wear, and a cute hat to match.

The cold weather can make our hair feel dull, dry and in need of love.

These winter hairstyle trends will give your hair a little extra oomph to make you forget the winter blues.

Not every outfit is beanie appropriate. The Fiddler Cap just makes any winter look a little more edgy. A quick fix for on-the-go style.

3. Messy Braids & Buns

Messy Braids for Winter

 To rock this look, grab hair around the front of your face on each side and plait them separately, stopping half way down your hair.

Leave those pieces for now, and make a third plait down the middle of your head. Grab the two side plaits and use a hair tie to tie them together.

Then with the excess hair, wrap into a messy bun and secure with bobby pins.

We’re loving this messy half braid ’do paired with a chunky knit or a fuzzy warm coat.

4. Half Up Top Knot
