Winter Hairstyle: Lived-In Braid
Yes, a messy, slept-in braid actually looks cute. Take a page out of Emily Blunt's book and leave a few pieces out of this milkmaid-inspired braid along the side of your ear. Renato Campora, her hairstylist, pulled the ends of the plaits back into a loose bun and kept the lived-in look intact by finishing off with hairspray.
Winter Hairstyle: Sleek Topknot
Having a bad hair day? Try a super high Beyoncé-approved topknot. Hairstylist Neal Farinah allowed a tiny chunk of her hair to pop out from her tight bun, giving the style some intrigue. If your hair is on the shorter side, clip the stray baby strands in the back with bobby pins.
Winter Hairstyle: Chic Headband
Headbands are your best friend when you want to add a little something special to your mane. Laura Polko worked her magic on Emma Chamberlain by curling her hair and then adding on a luxe velvet headband, creating a polished, holiday-approved look. For extra pizzazz, throw on a statement earring that matches your hair accessory.
Winter Hairstyle: Messy Updo
Sometimes the messier, the better. This is precisely the case with Yara Shahidi's updo, done by Kendall Dorsey. Leave a few pieces out from the updo around your face for a cool effect.
Winter Hairstyle: Frizz-Free Strands
All you need to achieve a sleek, frizz-free hairstyle is a hair oil. Apply the oil before blow-drying your hair, and voila, you'll be left with smooth strands. And consider parting your hair in the middle à la Kim Kardashian West.
Winter Hairstyle: Two Half-Up Ponies
Recreate a look you might have worn as a kid, like two half-up ponytails. Hailey Bieber makes the case for an elevated version of the child-like hairstyle, with the help of Jen Atkin. Copy Bieber and make the look appear more grown-up by loosely curling your locks.
Winter Hairstyle: Tiny Braids
Braids aren't only stylish, they keep pesky strands out of your face, especially when joined together in the back of your head (as proven by hairstylist Justine Marjan, who created this look for reality star Dorit Kemsley). And you don't have to have Rapunzel-length hair to try out the look. Even if your locks just hit your shoulders, tie the braids together and clip them in the back where they meet.
