Flyaways? Unwashed hair? Bad hair day? Winter isn't always kind to our hair, meaning sometimes there's no alternative but to wrap it up and think no more about it. But instead of a regular ponytail, braid and/or a hat, what about trying something a little different to show your creativity?
Here are four ideas to unfreeze your imagination!
A scarf doesn't just have to keep your neck warm, it can also be used as a cute hair accessory. Simply fold, wrap around the head (whatever hairstyle you're wearing) and tie in an easy knot or bow at the front. Practical and fashion-forward!
An edgy bandana can also double up as a hair tie. It's a great way of adding a pop of color to your hair and keeping it under control on blustery winter days. To avoid the hair slipping out, tie a transparent elastic underneath, then wrap the foulard around the base of the ponytail. Keep hair super sleek to finish off the look by using the Huile Originale from the Mythic Oil range on the lengths and ends for ultra-shiny hair.
Add an edgy element to your outfit and distract from hair that isn't on top form with a metal cuff. Usually worn as a bracelet, there's no reason you can't clip it around a high bun or ponytail instead. Spray the rest of the hair with a hairspray such as the best-selling Infinium from L'Oréal Professionnel to ensure the style holds all day, and use a dry hair shampoo like the Morning After Dust from Tecni.ART to revive your hair between washes.
Long textured ribbon
More and more, we're seeing this ribbon-ponytail trend move from the runway to the street. Ultra simple, it involves tying the hair in a low ponytail, then wrapping a long ribbon of your choice from the base to halfway down the hair. Top tip: thicker ribbons with texture are more likely to hold in place than satin or silk. Avoid flyaways by using L'Oréal Professionel's Infinium hairspray, which gives your bow-look long hold with unparalleled shine.
