Don't know what to do with your hair this winter? Toni & Guy's hair expert Sam Overton shares his top five winter looks for your locks, and explains which products work best in cold weather so you're ready for all of the seasons' festivities.
1. Use dry shampoo.
In between shampoos, use dry shampoo (no water) to give your hair a dry, gritty, textured feel. Flip your head over and work in the dry shampoo, then blast it like crazy with your hair dryer. This will create natural body and texture.
2. Wear it out with curls.
Wear your hair out with soft, sexy waves. Randomly pick bits of your hair out and twist them around your iron to create some loose curls. Do this all over then brush the curls out to create, soft, sexy waves.
3. Bring back braids.
Get a few more days out of your hair with braids, which are big this season. Loosely braid your hair to the side (either side will work), tie it, then ruffle the braid so it looks a bit tousled.
4. Hairspray, hairspray, hairspray.
Don't be scared of hairspray, it's your friend. Once you've styled your hair (short or long) grab your hairspray and start shaking your head like a madman, all the while spraying the hairspray and blasting your hair with a hair dryer.
5. Get your hair moving!
This is so the hairspray doesn't just end up in two places. The reason for this is to create separation, texture, and body, and also to look like you haven't used any product in your hair — an all-natural look is preferable.
6. Use good shampoos and treatments.
Spoiling your hair is good for you. Try and repair all the summer beach damage you've caused to your mane. Hair is forgiving but make sure not to leave it too long without a thorough, deep condition.
