Refresh Your Hair with Winter Cuts and Styles

The festive season is upon us. It’s a time to put your best foot forward and not have a hair out of place. The holidays are a chance to refresh our hair with the trending winter cuts and styles that are all over social media.

2022 is the first post-pandemic holiday season without restrictions, meaning more of us are jetting off to celebrate with friends and family. What better than showing up with a new hairstyle? Winter is a chance to experiment with your hair, from trying new winter cuts to trending styles.

The winter months are also a chance to give your hair some TLC with conditioning treatments and regular trims. We’re sharing the winter cuts and styles that everyone is talking about this season. Speak to your hairstylist at 212 Salon and Day Spa about how to personalize these winter trends to suit your style.

1. Chin-Length Bob

Elevate your look with an added touch of glamour this festive season with a chin-length bob. Your stylist can work with you to find a cut that suits your face shape, from a fuss-free shaggy bob to an angular cut.

The beauty of a chin-length bob is that it’ll keep you looking fresh for the whole season. You can maintain the look with regular trims. It’s a ‘90s look that you can make more feminine with curtain bangs or face-framing features.

Although the hair is short, it’s easy to add texture to your hair by softening the edges. A hold cream is a perfect investment to keep this look chic without weighing it down and straighten your hair for a glass-like look.

2. High Pony with Face Framing Pieces

We’re throwing it back to the ‘70s with this vintage-inspired hair trend. Embrace your inner starlet with bottleneck bangs or face-framing pieces. Keeping your fringe soft will give the hairstyle a ‘70s feel and keep it feminine.

Nothing shows bottleneck bangs off more than a high ponytail. This supermodel-worthy hairstyle is a favorite of Sophie Turner and Taylor Swift, both of whom opt for a fuller fringe to complete their looks.

Book in to have your hair shaped and fringe cut to make it easier to achieve this look at home. This winter hair trend is one we’ll be wearing to cocktail parties, after-work drinks, and Christmas markets.

The secret to recreating this look at home is to practice your blow-drying technique and use a round brush to give your ponytail an extra bounce. Keep a few pieces of hair loose around your face and separate a section of hair from your ponytail to wrap around the base for a sleek finish.

3. Copper Brunette

Every season we see a new color trend. It’s usually one that reflects the feel of the season – from cool blondes to warm brunettes. Zendaya has set the winter 2022 hair trend with her cooper brunette locks. It continues the winter trend of adding more warmth to your hair as the temperatures start to drop. Most people will choose to add caramel or copper to their hair for extra warmth to brighten their complexion.

Maintain your hair’s natural warmth or add a copper brunette hue with a gloss treatment. Give your hair extra support with a hair mask to lock in the shine and give it an elevated finish.

You can take this winter hair trend and make it your own. Gigi Hadid has given her copper brunette locks a vintage-inspired twist with a long fringe and multi-dimensional tones. This winter cut is perfect for those who curl their hair for added depth and definition.
Incorporate a color-protecting hair mask into your routine to maintain the color between treatments.

4. French Twist

Is your calendar full of festive events and family get-togethers? Treat yourself to a hair appointment to try out one of the winter season’s most popular hair trends – the French twist.

It’s an effortlessly chic Parisian look that will see you through the holiday season. Our stylists can give you a polished French twist that’ll guarantee you a spot on the best-dressed list. It’s easy to master this look with the help of styling products and a little hairspray.

It can take some trial and error to perfect the French twist, but it’s easier than you might think. Keep a few strands loose around your face for a more casual look or sleek back the sides for a glamorous finish. You can add a little sparkle to this holiday season hairstyle with a sequin or pearl clip.

5. Butterfly Cut

Hair trends in the ‘90s were dominated by ‘The Rachel’, the hairstyle Jennifer Aniston wore in Friends. Flash forward to today and this iconic hairstyle has been given an update as the butterfly haircut. It’s been gaining popularity since the Spring and has become the must-try hairstyle for winter 2022.

This winter hair trend is universally flattering and works for all face shapes and hair types. The butterfly cut is an easy way to add extra volume to your hair and give it another dimension.

The name ‘butterfly’ comes from the shorter face-framing layers that blend into the longer layers of the hairstyle, creating the illusion of wings. These shorter layers typically sit at chin length, while longer layers go beyond the shoulders.

Want to take this winter hairstyle to the next level? Speak to our colorists about adding mini highlights to your face-framing sections to brighten your complexion.

You’ll want to add a volumizing spray to give your hair extra movement with this style. If you prefer a sleeker look, add a styling cream to flatten any flyaways or frizz.

These 5 winter cuts and styles are ones that our stylists can bring to life. The beauty of these trends is that you can tailor them to suit your face shape and complexion.
