According to Tangle Teezer ambassador and celebrity hairstylist Clayton Hawkins, heavy layers, shags, and bangs are popping up everywhere this season. And MariLynne Cosmillo, hOURS Haircare Founder, agrees: “Soft, fluffy, layered looks are growing popular, right on time for the cold weather season.” And there really are options for everyone, especially if traditional cuts aren’t your thing — there are always new twists to take that can make a classic winter look feel fresh: “Waves and fringes will continue to spill over, but with a softer finish — think shine and soft hold for more natural-looking texture,” Cosmillo says, crediting the pandemic for making low-maintenance cuts a consistent top priority.

If you’re ready to update your look for the months ahead, take in the six winter haircuts to serve as inspiration for your next hair appointment.

The bodied bob

Cosmillo says this short, polished style is ideal for fine to medium density hair. “It has long layers and a slight face frame that complements the side part.” And fortunately, the classic cut is easy to style with a plumping mousse like hOURS Full-Time, which helps to hold the shape of a round brush and provide long-lasting bounce. To finish, grab a flexible texture spray like hOURS Well Traveled Tousle and Shine Spray for a glossy and voluminous mane.

Voluminous layers

“The voluminous, Barbie-reminiscent style is popular and an easy upgrade for medium to thick hair types,” Cosmillo tells TZR. Here, texturized layers help encourage volume without leaving hair looking too choppy. Pro-tip: Because a deep side part can weigh down the volume of one side, creating a higher face frame along the heavy side of the part will help lift the hair at the root and make it look fuller. To style, use hOURS Full-Time plumping mousse all over, then blow dry in sections with a large round brush (or your favorite hot rollers) for more definition. Spray hOURS Mostly Modest Flexible Hairspray all over before gently brushing out for bombshell volume.

Shoulder-grazing bobs

Remember to always switch out your shampoo and conditioner regimen in the winter. “Cooler air can cause dryness, so shifting to a more moisturizing routine, including a mask treatment will help prevent winter static and dullness,” Cosmillo tells TZR.
