We’re not going to lie: Last year’s winter was terrifying. There was boiling water turning into instant snow
, anamorphic snowmen singing
, and this poor L.A.-born-and-raised writer learning how dreadful a windchill could really be. With the polar vortex and its inevitable doom fast approaching, you need not just weatherproof your wardrobe but your hair as well. And, that’s why we’re
proactively planning the styles that’ll ward off any and every hair ailment in the face of even the worst weather forecasts.
We reached out to hairstylist extraordinaire, Adam Maclay, for the best hairstyles that’ll not only look amazing in the threat of frizz, static, and general dishevelment, but are easy enough to whip together on your own with a few Pantene
essentials, too. From the braid that won’t make you look like a drenched sewer rat when caught in flash-flood conditions to the adorable pouf that promises to keep your hair in place during a windstorm, these are the easy styles that’ll help you looking kempt and prepared for anything.
So, while your skin may be chapped, your lips cracked, and your rain boots filled with icy slush, we promise you this: Your hair will look amazing.
