I love when the seasons change because it's the perfect excuse to change up personal style as well as try out new hair products -- out with the old and in with the new.
Now that the weather is getting cooler and dryer, it's time to switch to the products that provide our hair with the moisture they so desperately need. In addition to switching up the product arsenal, it may also be the perfect time to try a new hairstyle, whether it's bangs, a pixie, or dyeing it a fun new color. While I usually like to keep my winter hairstyle relatively the same, I have been enjoying experimenting with some of the current trending hairstyles and products. Here are my top favorites.
While the classic bob is always a nice winter cut to have, experimenting with different lengths with this style can be a lot of fun, too. A longer bob -- also called a "lob" -- can be very elegant, sexy, and look great with bangs. While you may want to keep your hair long and pulled up away from your face and neck in the summer, this style is a great choice for the cooler seasons.
Bangs are something that never go out of style; I tried them out for the first time this summer and I am still in love. If you don't like too much change, trying out curtain bangs could just be the new twist you need in your everyday look.
The low bun
Another simple style that is underrated: the low bun. It's a great way to get the curls out of my face and yet still look effortlessly good. Plus, there is so much I can do with a low bun like add a cute headband, accessory, or jewelry. You can do either a single or a double low bun, depending on your mood.
Doing something as simple as changing up how I part my hair can make a difference, especially if you are looking for a subtle change in your style. Simply sweeping hair up over the top is a super cute way of switching up your look with almost no commitment. Bonus: it looks fantastic with a headband!
For those who don't typically wear their hair curly, giving your curls a chance to do their thing could be just what your hair needs this winter. As simple as that sounds, taking the time now to catch up on deep conditioning treatments, laying off of the heat styling tools, and giving your curls a little extra TLC is a great way to let them recover from the summer. Plus, it could be nice to sport your natural look for a while.
If you're new to this, you may want to switch up your cleanser to keep from drying out your natural curls or waves. The new DevaCurl Delight line, while pricy, is definitely worth every cent! This is a great gentle cleanser to try for winter. The chuga milk, quinoa protein, and grape seed oil give your curls a bundle of vitamins, strength, and moisturize to prepare them for the cool and dryer days. As always, it is free of silicones, sulfates and parabens.
Brushed out hair
Now I know when you read this, you're thinking, wait! Isn't brushing your hair out while it's dry horrible for your hair? It can be IF done incorrectly. Brushing your hair out is actually a great way to achieve more volume. Simply take a wide tooth comb and gently brush out any tangles starting from the ends, working your way up to your roots. This is one of those trends to definitely embrace the frizz.
Having a subtle warm blonde color is a great way to rock a lighter color in the winter. It is a beautiful natural looking color that can be very flattering for some eye colors. If you're going to be lightening your hair to achieve this color, make sure you keep it moisturized with a good moisturizer. Cantu Leave-in Conditioning Cream is affordable leave-in works great for fine curly hair textures. This product is especially great for those who dye their hair or use heat styling tools. This leave-in provides your hair with incredible moisture and shine while protecting your curls against damage. The Shea butter and naturally infused ingredients help to keep your curls healthy, strong, silky, and looking at their best.
No matter what cut or color you're rocking this season, make sure you incorporate a deep conditioner into your routine. I like the Long Aid Naturals Manuka Honey & Bergamot Double-Cream Moisture Masque because it's a texture-friendly masque that's the perfect product if you are trying to achieve extra hair growth, moisture, shine, and care. The natural ingredients of the manuka honey and bergamot leaf exact, deeply moisturize your curls, help to fight frizz, and encourage them to grow.
