The winter blues are a real thing. This time of year always seems to slow things down. It takes longer to get out of bed and it requires more coffee to get you up and going. It is essential that routines are kept simple and the best way to do this is to keep hair-styling simple, but still practical for the brisk weather.
Messy Side Braid
If you want to add some volume or texture to this look then simply add a spritz of textured spray but this look is easy as 1-2-3. Toss all your hair to one side and start a simple 3-stand braid. Don’t worry about a few strands being loose or one strand being bigger than the other. We’re going for easy not perfection.
The best thing about this braided hairstyle is that you can keep these braids in for several days at a time. The tight French braid holds even while you sleep. Simply section your hair down the middle and create two tight inverted braids. You can also use fishtail braids for this. The Kardashians often wear the Boxer Braid look as can be seen here.
We love hairstyles that combine efficiency and effectiveness. The front sections of our hair can be irritating, especially if they have static from the dry winter air. Twisting them back tightly and securing them with bobby pins will keep your hair pulled back, out of sight, out of mind, and it looks cute too!
Half Bun, Half Down
Hairstyle pioneers like Vanessa Hudgens and Khloe Kardashian quickly picked up this bohemian inspired hairstyle. An easy hairstyle that still shows off your wavy texture but keeps things easy. Simple take the top portion of your hair and throw it into a tousled top knot.
Twisted Twice Low Ponytail
A low ponytail is the perfect lazy winter hairstyle, but if you’re looking for something a little more stylish but just as easy, try this look. Simply twist the sides of your hair back and then put the two twisted pieces together and secure with an elastic. You can then wrap the elastic with a piece of hair. This is a great way to prevent tangles when wearing a scarf too!
Slicked Back Hair
If you’re looking for something perfect for the colder weather that’s bolder than regular then try this slicked back look. It doesn’t take a lot of time, product or skill to style your hair in this slicked by style. It keeps your hair off your face, tames flyaways and emphasizes your facial features.
