     Warm Up Your Look This Winter With the Hottest Hairstyles

    As mornings become colder and gloomier, it may be hard to find motivation and hairspiration to keep your look fresh and exciting. That cozy heating system and hot shower can be harsh on hair, leaving it dull and lifeless. Be sure to load up on conditioner. But also, consider a new look to add life to those locks.Winter is a perfect time for a change of hairstyle, or a time to make an old look new again. Add a little style to the season and embrace the hottest  hairstyle trends.

    Make the Cut

    If you’ve considered going for a shorter hairstyle, now is the perfect time, with the season’s hottest new pixie cuts. Asymmetrical shapes with long sharp edges or tousled looks, a pixie cut is chic and totally fashionable. If you’ve always worn a longer hairstyle, consider taking the first step with one of this winter’s edgy bobs. Be sure to take a few pics of your favorite looks and ask your hair stylist for styling tips and product recommendations. For a fun, messy style, one of my go-to products is a spray wax, Tigi Headbanger and with it’s yummy coconut scent . . . is an awesome choice!

    Color Your World

    A new hair color is a great way to change your style without opting for a drastic haircut. Why not add some heat to your winter with a sexy, fun color change this season. A reverse ombre hair color, where roots are lighter and ends gradually become darker, is a hot new direction in hair color. Celebs like Jessica Simpson and Beyonce are fearlessly rocking this flirty look.

    Shades of reds (a personal fave of mine) are showing up bold this season! Whether you want a dramatic coppery red or a cool auburn look, (think Ashley Greene -Twilight) red is a fun way to spice things up. If red is your hair color this winter, be sure to invest in a color protectant or color depositing shampoo to keep your color bright. Bumble and Bumble Color Minded Shampoo (protects color from washing away) and Color Support Shampoo (actually deposits red color back into hair!) have been go-to products for me when rocking my favorite red hairstyle.

    Embrace the Braids

    If you don’t want to go for a permanent change but need a little hairstyle inspiration, consider channeling you inner renaissance girl and try out an adorable braid. Whether it’s a simple single braid down the back, a side french or fishtail braid, or a braided headband, braids are an easy way to embrace one of the hottest hairstyles. We’ve got some great ideas on our Pinterest braids board, a great source for ideas, and also includes some great tutorials.
