I find wintertime to be the most difficult time of year, for me! I'm not used to living in a cold climate at all, and I find wintertime to be cumbersome. Coats, hats, gloves, scarves, extra moisturizer ... and WIND! I find that whatever hairstyle I start off with gets frizzy in the front in minutes, no matter what I do, because of the wind. How do you ladies deal with this, apart from pulling your hair back into a bun? Buns work for me, but they aren't always the most flattering of styles. Please post your favorite winter styles!

down in the winter, but that is because I live in a Hot climate, so its the only time of year I can enjoy it down without sweating so much!  That said, we don't have wind here, so hmm, I don't know what I would do if it were windy.  I would imagine a hat?  But then again, I don't wear hats either because hats and bangs (at least the wispy ones I have) don't mix.

So I'm not much help.  Hope someone else is!

I have a cute hat that can cover my intire hair!

It is like a rasta-hat (picture above), it's a dark purple one. It keeps my head warm and my hair dry and tangle free. I just hold my hair in a bun, pull the hat over my hair and the hair falls loose in the hat. It's so comfy.

my favorite winter hairstyle was to do braids wrapped in leather strips over my head, like Princess Leia in Return of the Jedi (pic below). You can also wrap them in silk ribbons if you don't use leather. This keeps the hair neat in the wind and allows a soft winter hat to fit over it. In the picture below she has braids over the head and buns in the back. I also liked to have all of my hair in the braids sometimes, but then it was harder to fit a hat over it.

I love that hat! Wonder where I can find one...



In winter I often wear my hair braided because it keeps it back, still looks flattering and a hat can be worn over top!

Lots of love,

~deanna~





Age: sixteen

Height: 5'2"

Type of hair: 2aNii

Colour: Naturally golden brown/Auburn

12"/27"/35+"(That's tail bone for me)



My routine:

Wash 2-3 times a week with Jason shampoos + conditioner. I sometimes do CO washes also. I use coconut oil on the ends of my hair every so often a week. Once every two weeks I use coconut oil for deep conditioning. I sleep with a braid or scrunchies down the length.



Other info:

I love literature, art, music, nature and animals

I usually make a long braid on my left side.

I also own a hair glove that is black leather with pearl snaps that makes a great protected long ponytail down the back.

My favorite so far has been a ponytail that looks like it's wrapped with my own hair. Easy and fun.

my favorite winter hairstyle isn't really a hairstyle at all! it's hijab. even though i'm not muslim i find that it's really comfortable if you have to go out in the wind to have a pretty scarf wrapped around your head and ears and neck that you don't have to worry about unwinding once you're indoors. my mom thinks i'm completely bonkers, but when I was in college i spent an entire winter (going from work to class to home back to class to the library to a class then to the theater for the afternoon, it just got exhausting taking off the hat and scarf, fixing my hair, putting it back on only to repeat the whole thing 45 minutes later) wearing a style called the shayala. of course it helped that I was costuming a play in which three of the main characters were palistinian women and i could chalk up any weird looks i got to "research". it's very practical, unless you only live a five minute walk from home to work at a call center, like i do now. but i'm usually there for at least a four hour stretch at a time (my lunch break is in the exact middle of my shift). anyway . . . pretty fabric instead of hat head, i think that was the point i was trying to make here?

I fear I'm not much help since I wear my hair bunned 95% of the time. To keep my head warm I use a calorimetry (<a href="http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PAT ... metry.html>) and this also keeps the flyaways around my face in place. (At least until I get inside and take the calorimetry off LOL). If it's really cold and I need to wear a proper cap I usually just make a single braid down my back." target="_new" rel="nofollow">http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter06/PAT ... metry.html>) and this also keeps the flyaways around my face in place.

alot of updoes. If I do wear a hat I usually have my hair in a french or dutch braid. Sometimes when I do wear it down, I will wrap my hair up into a hat and then when I get inside, I remove the hat and just let my hair hang loose. I go back outside, I wrap it up again. I'm not outside alot since my job is indoors. When I do know that I'll be out alot I choose a different style.

I live in WI and I've been braiding my hair at the nape of my neck, twisting it into a bun, and securing with those pinch-open grabbers.  Doesn't hurt my hair, easy and fast to do.  The air gets so dry here in winter that I may very well keep it in this style until spring!

I've recently started wearing this:



http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Chunky-Kn ... snood&sh=0

I have one in bright pink. It's kind of like a hijab, but since it's knitted it doubles as a scarf. And also, I look really stupid in hats, so this is a good solution!

How do you do the shayala style? The girls I see in London wearing the hijab usually wrap it around their heads quite tightly (with not a strand of hair showing!) and then wrap it around a pretty bun. Lots of them top it with pretty scarves. I like the "snood" though because it's easy to pull on and off - except I do have to keep fixing my hair!

I'm not one who really likes scarves, but that one is kind of a mix between a hat and a scarf. I think it's very fasionable and it looks comfy too!

see if I can dig up the websites I used for research. I don't do everything completely authentic (just so I don't offend anyone you know how people are) but i usually take a large shawl/scarf and wrap it around in a looser version of what you probably see ladies wear. although they could also be wearing a different kind called an amina that's like a tube with a little cap underneath.

I like it! I usually wear a satin lined hate, sort of a throw back look, but it works for me. I can tuck my hair up in it and let it out when I'm inside. Because it is Satin lined, it doesn't mess with my hair too much.

I would imagine that since you are unused to the colder climate all the jackets, gloves etc., would seem even more cumbersome that it does to those who are used to it!

I find wintertime to be the most difficult time of year, for me! I'm not used to living in a cold climate at all, and I find wintertime to be cumbersome. Coats, hats, gloves, scarves, extra moisturizer ... and WIND! I find that whatever hairstyle I start off with gets frizzy in the front in minutes, no matter what I do, because of the wind. How do you ladies deal with this, apart from pulling your hair back into a bun? Buns work for me, but they aren't always the most flattering of styles. Please post your favorite winter styles!

So it will be a fun and new experience for me.

It's already so cold here. I am on a 2 hour delay from work as I write this.

For styles, buns and a very tight peacock twist are working for me. I have a lot more hair in the twist and less hair hanging over the top now so there is little hair to be blown around and exposed. I have the wrap around earmuffs that fit under a bun and my twists. When I wore it in a bun this week I applied some Coconut Oil to sneak in a deep treatment. My hair felt nice and smooth when I took it down at the end of the day.

Hope all is well with you Leia.
Do take care ((hugs))

I've recently started wearing this:



http://www.asos.com/Asos/Asos-Chunky-Kn ... snood&sh=0

I have one in bright pink. It's kind of like a hijab, but since it's knitted it doubles as a scarf. And also, I look really stupid in hats, so this is a good solution!

How do you do the shayala style? The girls I see in London wearing the hijab usually wrap it around their heads quite tightly (with not a strand of hair showing!) and then wrap it around a pretty bun. Lots of them top it with pretty scarves. I like the "snood" though because it's easy to pull on and off - except I do have to keep fixing my hair!

I'm not usually a hat person either, even though I really like hats. (I just think they don't suit me.) But I like that a lot because it's unstructured. I wonder if I could crochet myself one!

I really have to find out how to knit something like this myself - just started on my second calorimetry, but as I have bought too much wool I could start on this when I'm finished...

2aNii, middle brown, 20/BSL/waist length

current routine: Wash every two days with organic shampoo and conditioner or with baking soda, jojoba oil on the ends. From time to time deep conditioning with egg, honey and jojoba oil.

This would be really easy to crochet. I can send you a close-up picture of mine if that would help. It looks like a rectangular tube that you put over your neck, and then pull over your head.

If you can send me a detailed picture, that would be so cool and I'm sure I can make it from that; that's what I usually do. I'm excited!

Thanks, Leia!

You know, I never really even thought of it that way until I was ready this thread.

I still say the best thing I have done was to give up coloring. It took me many years to realize that though. I could never get past BS length and would keep trimming and cutting more layers starting the process over again.

Thanks again
