Battle the Winter Blahs with Beautiful Hair

BlogBeauty Tips, Fashion Trends | January 8, 2014

During the winter, hairstyles fall as fast as temperatures.  Fighting the battle against hat-head, static electricity, and dryness may seem futile, but never fear!  You have an ally in the war on winter hair…accessories.

Go Chic:

Nothing says après-ski like a thick, stretchy black headband. This look helps combat the dreaded hat-head.  Pair the headband with a ponytail, add a strong red lip and cat-eyeliner for an easy retro-look!

Crown Yourself:

Make your worst hair day your shining moment with  a jeweled headband.  Any style, no matter how simple, becomes event-worthy with a little sparkle. Try this look with a long, loose braid, or a messy crop

Start Spring Early:

Delicately flowered hair accessories will be all the rage this spring.  Add a few strategically placed flowers to a messy up-do and you will look like you walked off of the runway, not in from the blizzard.

Wrap it in Leather:

Ponytails wrapped in leather bands or accessories look chic,  effortless, and expensive.  This quick-fix makes you look like you have an    edge, when all you seem to get is frizz.

Go for the Gold:

Show your Olympic spirit by taming your winter hair with gold accessories.  Weave a delicate gold ribbon into a French braid, or go a little 60’s bombshell by pulling your hair half-up with a gold barrette.

Add a Bow:

You can never go wrong with 40’s glamour.  A messy bouffant, or easy Victory rolls with a bow is the perfect look for a blustery night out.

Hair accessories are a fun and easy way to look fresh and trendy when you feel cold and bitter.

Remember, just because you have adorable accessories doesn’t mean you don’t have to pay attention to the condition of your hair! Proper winter hair-care is of the utmost importance. Hair is at its most delicate this time of year, and your hair care needs to change to avoid breakage.

This is the perfect time to visit a beauty professional or even a beauty school and indulge in treatments and professional products that are right for your type of hair.

Although it may seem tempting, never sacrifice comfort for beauty. Your hair and skin are a reflection of your overall health. Stay warm, well rested, and pampered this winter for your most beautiful spring and summer ever!

 So, what are your tips and tricks for fighting winter-hair?  What are your favorite looks?
