If beachy waves scream summer, there’s nothing we love more than glamour waves for winter. With year-end celebrations just around the corner, this hairstyle will serve as a major inspiration across the board. The trend of vintage, polished, and old Hollywood waves is accessible due to so many Instagram reels. Create the perfect side part by drawing a line back from the top of the arch of your eyebrow. Then, use a curling iron and hold it horizontally to roll under your curls.
The bubble ponytails trend has swamped our social media feeds and it isn’t going anywhere – it’s just getting a slight cozy update this winter. This trendsetting ponytail is undoubtedly practical, can be wholly chic, and is, in fact, the perfect party hairstyle for winter. They look really cute in the back with a winter hat. We would suggest investing in clip-in extensions for fun.
The sleek high ponytail is back this season. This is a super fun look to do when wearing a turtleneck or earrings. To take the look up a notch, incorporate some clip-in extensions. This hairstyle is a go-to for winter club strolls. The slicked ponytail looks polished and it requires little skill, TBH. You can create this look with a 2-in-1 finishing spray as it goes a long way to keep those flyaways at bay.
If you got bangs over the last years like many of us did but now want to grow them out, we have found a hairstyle for you. The tucked bangs trend can be worn in different ways- with a chic headband, or with the help of some strategically placed hair clips. This fashion-forward yet effortless look is perf to ace the look with minimal effort.
Yes, tendrils are still a hit. Suffer from flyaways? Smooth your section with a little oil or pomade to get them to gather together. Adorn any hairstyles with tendrils, and this season, you’ll be on to a winner.
Big clips are not only party-perfect, but they also keep your hair out of your face on the dance floor. A statement accessory is always going to be a hit during the festive season. Set your hair with a flexible hair spray for hold and moveable structure.
If you have short hair, you’ll need a spritz of hair spray to stop your strands moving about. This hairstyle will literally take you seconds to master. Bookmark this compliment-inducing hairstyle to make a head-turning statement.
A braided ponytail is one of the most versatile hairstyles that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. It looks equally great when paired with a sexy evening gown as it does with a cozy turtleneck. All you need to do is slick hair back into a high ponytail. Secure it with a band and create a plait throughout the length. Secure the ends with velvet scrunchies to add a touch of ‘90s to this hairstyle.
Not for beginners but a braided bun is an easy and impressive way to pull your look together if you can plait. Make sure your strands are moisturised before you start to create slip as your braid.
Bookmark these hairstyles because they are going to be huge this winter!
