Winter is always great at first with a change in our wardrobes, new furry boots and the endearing wintery scents which start to surround the air around us. Usually after several weeks though, the cold, dark and grey days start to wear on us both mentally and physically. While some plan a vacation to help melt away the winter blues others find undergoing a beauty transformation to be a simple way to freshen appearances and boost self-confidence.
From trending hair colors to must-have styles, get the scoop on how to enjoy winter to its fullest by trying some of this season’s latest hairstyle trends. Be sure to dial in and take notes because Signature Salon & Spa of Waukesha is spreading some stylish cheer.
Style is all about looking cool while keeping warm this season. Embrace the cold with some bold, cool hair colors for a fabulous new look.
If you currently fall into the blonde category, an icy blonde hue is a simple color transformation and totally trending upwards. This striking look features the palest of platinum tones and sometimes is paired with a silver, white or blue hue. Strands should shimmer as if they’ve been lightly touched by frost.
While switching over to the fiery side may not make you feel warm it will definitely leave you looking smokin’! If you have pale skin, it’s best to go with a lighter, warmer red like a cinnamon or a soft peach. The softer the red the more feminine tone you will attain. For a deeper skin tone choose a rich violet or a deep ruby.
The great thing about a red hair color is the different shades you will achieve over time. Rich electric reds transform into soft, delicate peachy shades perfect for a less dramatic transformation.
If changing your hair color isn’t your forte, playing with different hair accessories gives you the same effect. Printed scarves are a classic accessory and are absolutely fabulous to have a little fun with. From silk or jersey materials to houndstooth and floral prints, the possibilities are endless. A beautiful scarf can dress up any outfit and even help beautify the unwashed, on-the-go hair we all rock from time to time.
Sparkly accessories are also a fun way to dress up your hair. Whether it’s an antique barrette you pin to your bun or a dazzling headband, some subtle sparkle will go a long way.
Some simple face framing pieces added to your existing cut will freshen up your look. Adding a few layers around your face will offer a more flattering look by complimenting your face shape. Many different types of face shapes benefit from strategically placed layers by emphasizing cheeks, eyes or lips. Framing layers can also add more volume to your hair for an extra boost which can come in handy with hat hair season upon us.
If you have medium length hair or long for it, get ready to fall in love with the blunt jawline bob. This cut is extremely versatile and very low maintenance. From wavy thick strands to straight, almost anyone can rock this look. If you like the bob cut but don’t want to go too short, a heavy mid-length lob is the style for you. Super versatile and super chic, there’s a reason why we’re starting to see lobs make a comeback.
Grown out pixie styles are starting to bloom as well. Not too short but short enough for a drastic change, a shaggy pixie is flattering to most. Accentuate your cheekbones and go shaggy short this winter for an easy to manage style great for fine or thin hair. This longer pixie cut is a great way to take your short hair to the next level.
If you’re not ready to cut or dye your hair but are looking for a change, trying a new hairstyle might be just the change you need. A softly worn high or low bun will add a little class to your everyday wear or can perfectly complement a favorite LBD on your next night out. Cool weather curls are always a great way to switch things up and escape the mundane regularities of life and offer a romantic change to your look.
