Winter has arrived and it calls for a change in wardrobe with lots of woolens and jackets, and scarves and hats! But why leave your hair behind? This winter style your hair differently and flaunt your tresses while protecting it.
Don’t be afraid to think ‘outside of the box’ when it comes to a new style this season. Dare to go short, add some layers, rock a bang or try a new hair color. On the occasion of TRESemmé’s first anniversary, Marcus Francis, Global hairstylist TRESemmé shares some tips on how you can craft your hair this winter!
Experimenting with hues
Cold seasons are the perfect time to darken your locks. Choose your natural shade to just a shade darker to complement the dreary cold days and the heavier clothing that you’re wearing.
For Indian skin tone, try warmer colors to suit your complexion. One can go for darkest brown, golden honey blonde and deep red to be as dramatic as the cold weather. Burgundy is another popular color on olive and yellow skin
Opt for Bangs
Now is the perfect time to opt for bangs. Heavy, blunt bangs and straight-edged hair help make a sweater and dark jeans and boots look all the more fashionable. If you do not want heavy-thick bangs, even side-swept bangs for the winter months are a great change. It gives you a softer look bringing the focus on your eyes.
Layer your hair If you have long or medium length hair, adding layers will give you a glamorous look this winter. Layering makes your hair look more voluminous especially for women with thin hair. If you have thick, long hair, this style will suit you the best as layering will break bulky texture and set you free from exhausting styling.
The winter season also means a whole lot of parties, flirty-romantic curls, last minute shopping and much more. Be dramatic and create loose ringlets in your hair and pin back one side behind your ear with a pearly or jewel-toned hair clip.
Play with accessorizes
Whether you let your hair loose or braid it up, or tie a bun or a pony, add some accessories to your hair before you step out. Embellished bobby pins, head bands or elastic bands just add a chic look to your winter style. Just carry few bobby pins and hair pins in your bag and you can style your hair anytime.
Braids, knots and buns
Braids, knots and buns are great for winter as well. While summer is all about windswept, beachy hair, winter seasons are all about looking polished with warm winter jackets, thick sweaters, and turtlenecks. Having your hair pulled back simply in a bun, braid, or knot helps your silhouette and complements bangs for winter. Particularly for darker hair in winter, these styles are great ways to keep your hair from adding onto bulky winter clothing, to give you a complete look all around.
