With the cold weather finally upon us, we couldn’t be more excited to bundle up in coordinating comfy sweaters and cozy beanies. But while a winter hat may be a necessity for keeping us warm during the cooler months, it’s sometimes not so practical for the hairstyle we’re trying to rock. After all, no one wants to spend hours on their hair only to cover it up.
Still, though, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your ‘do for staying warm this winter. In fact, there are myriad hairstyles (for all kinds of hair types!) you can wear under your winter hat that are still stylish and noticeable. And with the right styling techniques and hair care tips, you can achieve these looks. From textured waves to fun pigtails, here are nine of the best hairstyles to try out under your beanies, berets and fluffy bucket hats this season.
1. Bubble Braids
Level up your ponytail with bubble braids, an alternative to classic plaits — with no braiding skills required. Instead of weaving your tresses together to form a braid, this low-maintenance hairstyle involves wrapping hair elastics continuously down and around your ponytail until it forms a bubble effect, hence the name.
In addition to hair ties, effective hair-smoothing products are essential for achieving this look. Apply an anti-frizz serum, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In, throughout your strands to prevent flyaways. Then, when you’re done, lock in your style with the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Strong Hold hairspray.
2. Low Space Buns
In case you haven’t heard, Y2K beauty is in — and it’s here to stay. One early aughts hair trend that we’ve been seeing everywhere again is space buns. While the playful style is typically worn at both sides on the top of your head, you can also wear them low.
All you’ll need to do is part your mane into two ponytails, twist each into a fluffy bun at the nape of your neck and secure. Just be sure to seal the look with hairspray to smooth away any frizz.
3. Textured Waves
Sure, rocking straight hair under your beanie is simple and fuss-free — but adding some texture and loose waves to your mane can give the entire look some extra oomph. Before styling with a hot tool, spritz on a heat protectant — such as the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray — to prevent damaging your strands.
If you have wavy or curly hair, you’re in luck. Just apply a bit of the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel to damp or dry hair and shape your spirals into your desired look.
