Simple hairstyles for winter
Let's face it: Winter can be pretty rough on your hair. Cold air and heated buildings can cause frizzy, hard-to-manage hair. Luckily, however, there are some simple hairstyles that you can try out this winter that will leave your locks looking stylish and pulled together. If you're looking for a way to avoid winter hair wear and tear, check out the easy 'dos below.
The French braid is a classic, feminine look that's also timeless, and it's the perfect hairstyle for winter — particularly if your hair is prone to frizz. Try creating one long braid down the center of your head to avoid that windswept look. A French braid not only disguises frizz and flyaways, it also tucks easily under a beanie or snow hat.
Bangs are super-trendy this year, and if you've always wanted to try them out but haven't been sure when to take the plunge, winter is a great time to go for it. During the summertime, bangs can cause foreheads to get sweaty and cause breakouts. During winter, however, bangs can help keep your face and head extra warm. If you have bangs that you plan to wear under a hat, you can simply let them air dry. Alternatively, apply Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum and straighten them with a flat iron for a more tailored look.
If your hair is prone to static, or you spend a lot of time in your heated office, try wearing your hair in a twisted ponytail. Use a brush to part your hair down the center. Twist each half of your hair into a tight twist and secure it with an elastic. Finally, twist both halves together into one twisted ponytail, and secure it with a hair elastic. The twisted ponytail looks chic on its own, but it also pairs well with earmuffs or a beanie.
Winter Hair-Care Tips
To make the most of the above hairstyles, make sure you show your hair some extra TLC during the winter. For luscious, healthy locks, use a moisturizing shampoo like Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Fortifying shampoo to help keep hair moist and shiny. Leave-ins like the Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream can also protect your hair in case you encounter harsh elements like wind or snow.
