Sure, between November and March, the city of Chicago is a permanent polar vortex—but there's no need to spend the rest of the season with limp locks — at least, not as long as you've got some killer DIY expertise at your frostbitten fingertips.

, we present you with three perfect 'dos for fixing any cold-weather hair disaster — that dreadful wintry mix included. Oh, and did we mention that they were super-easy, too? From an updo with purposely exposed bobby pins to a textured bob to a bun that doesn't
require a hair-tie, these hairstyles will make you happy you got caught in a snowstorm.
