It seems like just yesterday summer was still here. It was warm outside, kids played out all day, fashion shows were in full swing. We loved all the different styles of fashion and hair. Hair styles were laced with sun-kissed colors and put into various styles. Now as the seasons change so do the styles. It is time to pack up the bikinis and break out the flannels. With winter slowly approaching its time to get ready and fall in love with new winter styles including hair.
Prepare your hair for winter
As winter kicks in it brings with it a variety of weather changes. It gets cold, windy, dry and maybe even humid. As far as hair goes, winter does not always hair friendly. But if you prepare your hair correctly for winter, this can be a happy relationship. So start by getting a good conditioning treatment on your hair. It doesn’t have to be a fancy or expensive movie star treatment. It can be done at home with simple products. A homemade hair mask with natural kitchen products such as vinegar, eggs or even olive oil will work wonders. This will help keep hair tame and moisturized during those blustery cold winters. Try to avoid the use of any hot iron tools as they contribute to de-moisturizing hair. Get a trim now and then too to avoid that brittle, dry split end look.
Change up hair colors for winter
A full on color change doesn’t have to be drastic. Winter weather can leave skin coloring pale, burnt or chapped. Sometimes colors get washed out over time and no longer compliment your face. So a light touch up of highlights can do wonders in winter. A lighter hue or neutral color works great for winter looks. Don’t have time for a full coloring? Try a little touch up just on the crown of your head. Your grays will get full coverage, and roots will blend in nicely as well.
Get that winter cut and style
It’s time to pull down the ponytails and toss out the hair clips that held up hair all summer long. Winter is a time for more relaxed styles. Loose hairstyles are great for those holiday looks and they letting your hair down is great for keeping the neck warm on colder days. Worried about windy days blowing your style? No need to worry, if you style correctly. Use products that will gently hold your style in place. But don’t overdo it; otherwise you’ll end up spending more time washing and conditioning. Remember to accessorize the hair. Scarves hats, headbands and even flowers are great winter wear accessories to any look. Evan a partial updo is great. You get that long loose look and control flyaway strands at the same time.
