Winter Trends

by Jesse Harp

The holidays are fast approaching and there’s no better way to get ready for the season than by treating yourself to the latest winter beauty trends. As your friend in the beauty industry, Empire Beauty School has been keeping an eye out for what’s in vogue so you can put your best foot forward in the coming months.

For an elegant yet effortless hairstyle, many are opting for loose, windswept waves that can be styled for any occasion. For a Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner with family and friends, the subtle waves look casually beautiful worn down. To elevate the look for a more formal event, pin the waves loosely into an asymmetrical bun. The added touch of a small jeweled barrette or headband makes for a chic yet simple look.

While the money piece hair-coloring technique that made headway in the fall is still proving to be a favorite for many, a chocolate brunette hair color is expected to grow in popularity this winter as well.

To replenish moisture into dry, dull hair, an easy, at-home coconut oil treatment can add ample life to your locks. Coconut oil can be found at just about any grocery store near you. Simply apply to damp, warm hair in the shower and wrap in a towel for 30 minutes before rinsing. You’ll find that your hair is stronger, shinier, and more hydrated after treating it with some coconut oil.

Since the covid-19 pandemic has brought about the need to wear facial masks and coverings, the bottom half of our faces aren’t really getting as much air time in our day-to-day lives anymore. For this reason, many have started applying dramatic winged eyeliner to accentuate the eyes and draw attention to the features that aren’t covered. For moments when a mask is not needed, a nude lip color offsets the bold eye makeup and creates the perfect balance. If you’re on the hunt for a new nail style or color to accompany your new winter makeup routine, you’ll find that white glittered nails are growing in popularity and match the season quite well.

To combat dry, dead skin during the winter months, apply a vitamin C and E serums to your face. Vitamins C and E enhance skin in a myriad of ways including helping rebuild elasticity and defending skin from the outside elements. The healing properties of these serums not only help heal and repair skin, but they can also help by preventing the skin from aging too rapidly.

Wherever you find yourself this holiday season, Empire’s beauty professionals are wishing you soft, chocolate waves, vibrant, healthy skin and hair, glisteningly white nails, impeccably winged eyeliner, and everything else on your beauty wish list this year.
