The 6 Hair Trends You’ll Be Seeing Everywhere This Winter
Get your brushes, products, and styling tools at the ready…
As the months get cooler, there’s nothing we want to do more than curl up in a ball, stay in bed and do absolutely nothing. Alas, life goes on. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun in our day to day lives. And what better way to lift the mid-Winter blues than trying out a new hair style? That’s right–post-breakup hair transformations are out, winter hair transformations are in.
While Summer calls for time spent in the salt water and sun, let’s face it, it’s not the easiest season for maintaining hair health. So, while the weather allows it, why not experiment with a new colour or style to give your strands that cool factor?
Here, we share the hair styles and colours you’ll be seeing everywhere this season. Go, go, go! Book, book, book!
Sophisticated, yet stylish, the look can be easily altered to fit your face shape. Pull the hair back in a high ponytail for a lifted look or bring the hair into a low pony for something more subtle. From there, it’s as easy as braiding and securing with a hair tie. It is also the perfect style for unwashed hair (iykyk).
Red is all the rage this season. Ranging from strawberry blonde to dark auburn, the red spectrum has something for everyone. Kendall Jenner and Zendaya were early to the party, sporting their own variations of the hue. Whether it be Jenner’s true copper shade or Zendaya’s dark auburn, we expect to see many more adopting some variation of this tone.
Following the emergence of the curtain bang trend in 2020, prepare yourselves for a bangin’ Winter. Embrace the undone look with a feathered fringe because the textured bang is making a comeback this season–and Sydney Sweeney and Suki Waterhouse are leading the pack. Accompany the look with a textured wave and voilà, you have achieved the cool-girl look.
Accompanying the frosty weather, the Winter season calls for a hair colour just as cool. Mother and model, Gigi Hadid, has embraced a stark platinum for a few months and, ever the trendsetter, has inspired a resurgence of the shade. It can’t be denied that there’s no statement quite like an icy blonde but, when taking the plunge into the uber-bleached look, make sure you care for your strands by investing in a hydrating and nourishing hair mask.
Classic brown just got a seasonal twist. Ash Brown, the cool sister of a true brunette, will be making its mark this Winter. Just ask Jennifer Affleck (née Lopez). The brown/silver hybrid colour can be worn as an all over wash or highlighted through a deeper brown.
À la Megan Fox, glossy black hair is here to stay. Tired of using bleach? Much like platinum, black hair makes a statement. Exuding a sense of luxury, the deep, rich shade embodies a natural shine. Pair it with a hair gloss treatment and your hair will be extra glossy all season long.
