  • Sun bleached hair will take time to repair. To return the natural moisture that a few months in the sun have stripped, use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner throughout the fall and winter like the ones from Head & Shoulders.
  • If you've been toying with the idea of making a dramatic change to your hair style, winter is the time to go for it. Get a great hair cut, and ditch any dry ends you may have.
  • A change of color is always good for winter. Don't be afraid to try dark and rich colors.
  • Cold winter air can cause your hair to dry out, making it brittle and hard to style. To prevent dry hair, use a deep conditioner once a week. A deep conditioner is heavier than your usual conditioner, and leaving it in for five to ten minutes can do wonders.
  • Wavy hair is a terrific look for the winter. For a soft and glamorous look for the evening, I find a heated roller set works well. They are easy to use and gentle on your hair.

    Long and beautiful Waves

    What you'll need...

  • large barrel curling iron

  • light mousse
  • For straight hair:

    1. Do two loose braids while hair is damp, let dry and then undo for soft waves
    2. To add extra waves and additional curl use large barrel curling iron by wraping large sections
    3. Finish by running fingers through hair to separate waves

    For naturally wavy hair:

    1. Allow hair to dry on its own, apply light mousse for texture

    Sleek Ponies

    What you'll need...

  • gel or shine wax

  • hair elastic
  • 1. Determine the part that best suits your face shape
    2. Gather hair and pull straight back using hair elastic
    3. Use gel or wax to slick back hair in a tight pony tail -- avoid getting product in ponytail

    Relaxed Updos

    What you'll need...

  • hair pins or thin hair elastic
  • 1. Keep texture fluffy by using no product in hair
    2. Pull hair back loosely, finish with a loose braid or a soft bun loosely pinned
    3. Allow wisps of hair to escape in front and back to add softness
