For the latest in hair inspiration, we look to celebrities. They pull out all the stops when they step out in the chilly weather, and we’ve been taking note! If you want to try a celeb-inspired hairdo this winter, we’ve got you covered! With the celebrity-inspired winter hairstyles in this article, you’ll have no excuse to wallow in your hair rut.
Kim Kardashian-Inspired Sleek Low Ponytail
Care to channel your inner Kim Kardashian? The low ponytail is the way to go. Kim K has been spotted all over the world rocking her signature sleek low ponytail, and she always looks flawless! There’s no wonder why she loves it - this hairstyle takes the focus off of everything else and puts your face front and center. You’ll also enjoy a touch of luxuriousness as the long hair in the back grazes your shoulders and falls down your back. Wear this style to the gym, for a girls’ night out, or even on a hot date with your partner.
To get the look, apply a hair pomade or gel around your hairline and the nape of your neck. Then, smooth your hair backward with a boar bristle brush until it’s sleek and smooth, and gather it all together with an elastic. If you want some extra length, wrap some human hair wefts around the base of your ponytail and secure it with bobby pins or another elastic.
Bobs Every Way
Celebrities from all over have donned bobs in every way possible for decades: asymmetrical, curly, straight, highlighted, ombre, long, and even with bangs. Singer and actress, Selena Gomez, wowed with a chin-length rounded bob in 2021 in a popular Instagram post. Acclaimed actress, Regina King, dazzled in a pin-straight brunette bob at the 2021 Oscars. Mega successful singer and businesswoman, Rihanna, took everyone by surprise with a wavy fringed bob in 2018 on the red carpet. Clearly, bobs show no sign of going out of style. And as a major plus, they’re great for winter strolls, errands, and date nights.
DIY bobs are difficult to pull off, so we recommend that you call up your local hairstylist for a professional bob that fits your face shape and personal style. If you’re concerned about getting too cold in the frigid winter temps, opt for a lob, a longer version of the traditional bob.
SZA-Inspired Ginger Fro
When you want to look fabulous and stay warm in the winter, no style works better than a larger-than-life afro inspired by SZA. SZA has broken the internet several times with her copper-hued hairstyles, but her signature afro really took the cake in 2020.
This look may be too much for the average gal, but if you are feeling daring, there are a couple of ways you can achieve this look at home. The first option is to get your hands on a curly ginger wig and comb out the curls. The second option is for people who already have long textured hair: dye it ginger and pick it out for max volume. If you’re not sure how to achieve the right color, you can always reach out to your local stylist for help.
It can be extremely difficult to choose a new style - that’s why we narrowed it down to three of the absolute best celeb-inspired styles out there. Take your pick - you can’t go wrong with any of the styles on our list.
