Stylish Winter Hairstyles

Sleek Ponytails

Ponytails can never go out of fashion. But winter is all about simplicity and minimalism. So style your hair with a sleek, shiny low ponytail. You can have center part or deep side part.

If you have very long hair a high pony will look as elegant. Grab a tiny section of hair and tie it around the elastic band. You can bring in some variations to your regular ponytail like a knotted pony or a side ponytail.

Bob With Fringe

Bobs are perfect hairstyles for short hair. Give a touch of chic style to your classic bob hairstyle with perfect fringes covering your forehead. Shade these fringes and the hair touching your chin with glossy brown or purple highlights.

If your hair is bit longer then opt for one of the trendiest lob haircuts. Keep the longer hair in the front and graduated shorter hair at the back.


Braids are not just for summer, they are a favorite in colder months too. Braids range from simple thin strands to elaborate complicated updos. For winters, sleek braids can be worn in different ways; a braided hair band, a French braid across the hairline or a braided ponytail. For your long and straight hair a waterfall braid looks awesome and flattering.


Another simple braided hairstyle is to part your hair side ways and take a small section from the minor part and tightly braid up to the back.  French braid a thin section of hair just near the hairline and tightly braid back and secure both the braids using bobby pins. You can let your hair straight or curl them for soft waves.

Long and Straight hairstyle

If you don’t want to keep it straight and simple, you can add a bit of twist to your simple yet stylish hair. Instead of center part, take a side part and leave the side swept hair loose. Pull one section of the hair from the left and secure it underneath the layers.
