5 New Winter Haircuts to Try for 2018

Cold weather calls for cool hair. This winter, consider styles that stand up to the elements—high ponytails, Zulu knots, and more. Clayton Hawkins, the hairstylist who has worked with Elizabeth Olsen, Dakota Johnson, and Vanessa Hudgens provides major hair inspiration, ahead.

Full Pony

Hawkins pulls inspiration form Amanda Brugel and Gabrielle Union’s recent textured ponytails. The look is a sleek top that leads back into a textured ponytail. Hawkins recommends a strong gel and toothbrush to snatch your hair back into the tightest pony possible. Next, brush out your natural texture and let it get as big and wild as possible. “The juxtaposition is gorgeous and perfect for the winter,” says Hawkins.

Old School Glam

This winter, ditch the straight-ended beach waves and embrace the old school glam. Hawkins recommends investing in a quality hot roller set to complete the glossy bouncy waves. We’ve had years of undone bends, but the old waves are refreshing and perfect for any holiday party.

Knots

“If your hair is super textured, try Zulu knots this holiday season,” says Hawkins. Not only is it a great protective style, but it adds an instant edge to your basic holiday party ensemble.

Flip Out

When in doubt, flip it out! Stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Bella Hadid have been rocking a ‘60s-inspired flip lately. The modern take is sleek, straight, and shiny with the ends flipping out perfectly. It’s feminine, fun, and perfect if you’re tired of doing the same old waves on your lob.

Tie It Up

Elevate your holiday party beauty game by adding a velvet detail to your look. Stars like Elizabeth Olsen have been rocking this distinct look for a while and this holiday is the perfect time to try it out. Hawkins suggests wrapping a black velvet ribbon around a ponytail. For an extra edge, wrap the band down more than a few inches. If you’re feeling extra girly, opt out of the classic elastic band and try using the ribbon to make a bow.
