Hairstyles to Look Hot when the Temperatures Drop

With the chill of colder months fast approaching, weatherproofing your hair is just as important as weatherproofing your wardrobe. The bitter cold, dry air, and unpredictable wind can make doing your hair a nightmare. Luckily, we’re proactively planning the hair looks that’ll help you ward off the cold weather in style. We’ve come up with three easy to achieve looks to keep you looking hot while bearing the cold when the temperatures drop this season.

Our first look is perfect for combatting the fierce, bone-chilling winds that literally suck the moisture out of your hair, leaving you with dry, split, tangled ends. For a style that will stay put in the wind and help your ends stay hydrated, try a modern beehive. Apply Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair 11-in-1 Leave-In to your clean, damp hair. Work in the product from the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair (slather on a little extra on your ends). Section away the front center of your hair, from temple to temple. Gather the rest of your hair, and twist it into a chignon. Starting from the nape of your neck, twist the hair onto its side, and tuck in the ends, pinning as you go. Tease the back section of the front hair and pin into a small pouf. With this look, your hydrated ends are tucked in and out of sight, while the rest of your hair will stay in place no matter how cold the wind gusts get.


Our second look addresses the dreaded enemy of strands everywhere - static electricity. This look minimizes static from the dry air of the colder months and also goes great with your favorite cold weather accessory, a knit beanie. A twisted ponytail looks just as chic peeking out from under that beanie as it does on its own. For this style, smoothness is key, so prep your damp hair with Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair 11-in-1 Leave-In, and comb it through. Make a center part from the hairline to the nape of your neck. Twist each section towards the center part and secure each with a rubber band. While twisting, use Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Satin Frizz Control Straightening Spray to keep any flyaways intact as you make your way down. Twist the two ropes together until you reach the ends. Secure with a clear elastic, and just like that you have a pretty alternative to a ponytail or bun.


Finally, if you’re looking for an option to keep your locks under wraps while you trudge through the cold getting from point A to point B, a sleek bun with a twist might be just what you’re looking for. This one is simple. Run a dollop of Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume Mousse through your damp hair. Begin by braiding your hair, twist the braid into a bun, and secure it with bobby pins. Then, when you get to your destination, take your hair out you’ll be left with the most perfect waves for the rest of the day.


Your skin may be chapped and your lips cracked, but we promise you that no matter how low the temps drop, your hair will look amazing. With our cold weather hairstyles and products from the Schwarzkopf essence and styliste ULTIME lines, you’ll be ready for anything the cold hits you with when you walk out the door. It’s never been easier to look hot in the cold than it is with Schwarzkopf by your side!
