Fall and Winter Hairstyles

Fall and winter aren’t easy on our manes. Between the wind, static, and rain, there are far too many bad hair days. In an effort to limit them, we brought in a professional to show us a few styles that even the most cosmetology-challenged will be able to do.

Pin It > Everyday Chignon

First up, the everyday chignon. When done in an undone way, this elegant style won’t seem at odds with your denim and knits. It also pairs quite beautifully with earmuffs.

Pin It > Easy Chignon

Directions
Prep the hair with texturizing spray. (We like Bumble and bumble. Thickening Hairspray.) Tease from the apex of the head to the nape of the neck in 1” sections. Curl hair in 2” sections by wrapping it around the barrel of a curling iron. Split the hair into three sections: two on the side and one on the back. Roll hair from either side into place at the nape of the neck and secure with bobby pins. Wrap the third section up and over the two pinned sections. Have fun! It doesn’t need to be perfect. The more texture, the better.

Pin It > Shoelace Braid

Now don’t get scared. This shoelace braid looks a lot harder than it is. This eye-catching style will be perfect for date night, a Thanksgiving get-together, or the office holiday party.

Directions
Prep the hair with a texturizing hairspray. Curl the hair in 1” sections by wrapping it around the iron to create beachy waves. Part the hair with a dramatic side part. Take a 2” section and divide at the top of the head. Tie the two pieces together as you would with any ribbon or lace and continue for the length of the hair. Spray each loop with hairspray as you finish. Secure with a bobby pin.

Pin It > Headband Updo

We love our headbands—all the warmth with none of the hat hair woes—but we wanted to find a better way to wear them than with our hair down or in a plain ponytail. Enter this voluminous, retro-inspired updo.

Pin It > Headband Hairstyle

Directions
Prep the hair with a texturizing spray. Tease at the crown in 1” sections. Pull hair into a high ponytail and secure with hair elastic. Wrap hair around the elastic to hide. Tease the remaining hair from the ponytail to create the look of a full, messy bun. Secure the ends with bobby pins, leaving a few pieces out for a tousled look. Finish with hairspray.
