Winter season is upon us and so is the season when you don’t feel as excited about washing your hair every other day. Your hair gets slick or dry as hell with all the static from rubbing with your sweater.

To keep the strays controlled and to also sport a new look everyday, you can try experimenting a bit. Seriously girls, open hair or ponytails are not the only options available to you.

So try these nice, quick lifesavers of hairstyles and glam on!

Braided Ponytail

This will turn the ­ponytail from boring to snazzy. Make a side part. Then, take a section of your hair and start ­weaving it in braids. Stretch out the braid to make it look thicker and flatter. Secure the end with a pin or a rubber band. Lead this braid to the ponytail. It is no ­longer a straight-from-the-gym hairstyle.

The French braid

For those sparkly occasions when you want to be a headturner, try French braided pony. Pick up a two-inch thick strand of hair from the front. Divide it into three equal strands.

Now, while braiding, pick up a bit of hair, add it to the rightmost chunk, and then cross it over the middle chunk. End it into a pony.

Give an unexpected twist to the predictable bun! Loosely braid your hair, and secure it with an elastic band. Wrap the braid, like you would do while tying a normal bun. Tuck the ends of the hair with bobby pins. Voila!

There might be a dearth of hairstyles for short hair, but this is the one you must master for a fun look. Take two thick front strands of hair and roll it all the way back. When you reach the centre, roll the right side towards the left, and the left towards the right. Hold with a bobby pin. You can even try some braiding.

Soft waves

If you wake up at zero-time, and still want to look your stylish best, all you need to do is braid your hair loosely after washing your hair at night. Make around 7-8 braids. Undo the braids in the morning, and scrunch them with your hands to get bouncy waves.
