Winter months are fast approaching, and the wind and rain is beginning to make the tangles and knots more unbearable. The thought of waking up and putting in the effort to make your hair look good only for it to be ruined whilst commuting to university seems just too daunting.
With the chilly weather, maintaining a sleek hair look seems near impossible. But winter doesn’t have to be a season of bad hair days especially when you have this list of five weatherproof hairstyles at your disposal.
The claw clip:
The claw clip is most versatile and convenient hair accessory you could own. They come in various sizes and styles so you can dress it up and down with full hair up or half down or somewhere in the middle. You can go for the clip up ponytail or the complete twist bun: the options are endless. It's perfect for a quick and easy last-minute hairstyle before running out the door for a lecture and the best accessory for avoiding breakage.
The French plait:
The timeless choice that will keep your hair secure and out of your face. Perfect for early morning classes and looking like you put that little extra effort in. If your hair is dry or damp pulling it into a French or even a Dutch (if you are feeling fancy) just looks super cuter and effortless. Very useful for preventing the windswept frizz and also an added bonus is the waves you will have for the next day. Two in one hairstyles right there.
The sleek low ponytail:
Still a trend after several months and no doubt why because it is super practical. Whether with a little bit of mousse or gel, slicking those sides and gluing them down means those pesky short baby hairs will not budge! Long-lasting and can be dressed up or down with professional or casual outfits is once again a versatile and minimum-maintenance style. If you choose to wear a scarf you can tuck your hair underneath to further weatherproof it for your commutes.
The thick hairband:
We are talking a five second hair style transformation here and that is what we need when we need to be out the door in ten minutes. Making sure all those baby hairs are swept off your face and tucked in under a chunky band is great for on-the-go. It can be re-adjusted throughout the day and means you have the options to keep your hair down or tied up.
Finally, if you are not feeling up for any of these styles, put on a beanie or a cap and call it a day.
In the winter, hair accessories are your best friend. Rotating these styles with a little bit of creativity means you can keep those knots and tangles at bay and look a little more put together for a day on campus.
