Cold temperatures can be extremely harsh on our hair, but that doesn’t mean we have to hide it under beanies and scarves for the next four months. Let your hair down—or pull it up—with styles that can withstand the elements, including high ponytails with a retro twist, protective looks with endless styling options, pixie cuts and more. Inspo from your favorite red carpet stars, ahead.

High Ponytail

High ponytails are all the rage right now. We’ve traded in the Ariana Grande-esque long pony for something a little more retro. Lizzo, Ciara, and Sofia’s ponytails all gather at the top of their heads, allowing the hair to fall down into a dramatic flip that recalls the 60s.

Knotless Braids

Knotless box braids eliminate the tension you would experience with traditional box braids by starting each braid with your natural hair before adding extensions. This style doesn’t leave you with bulky roots, tense hair or sleepless nights. Plus, it’s a versatile protective style that can be accessorized with jewels and gold string and morphed into buns, high ponytails, and more.

Low Ponytail

If high ponytails aren’t your jam, keep it simple by gathering your hair at the nape of your neck. For a voluminous take on the hairstyle, follow Marsai Martin and H.E.R by brushing out your curls or slick your hair back and seal the deal with a bow a la Chloe Sevigny.

Variations on the Bob

Summer is usually when people get scissor happy but who said bobs can’t work in the winter? Opt for Selena’s subtle brown highlights or Julianne’s choppy layers and waves for a summery vibe (even if the temperature is in the teens) or go color crazy like Charlie XCX by adding a eye-popping neon shade to your ends.


The pixie is the ultimate get-up-and-go style. Shorter hair allows people to really see your face, so bold makeup and statement jewelry will be your best friend this winter.
