6 reasons topknots should be your go-to winter hairstyle
They’re not just a summer ‘do
Beauty Crew Contributor / August 08 2016
No doubt already a regular in your summer hairstyle repertoire, we’re here to remind you topknots are a winter staple, too. Whether it’s plaited, messy, sleek or half-up, buns are good to go year-round.
They allow you to hide a hair treatment
Just like your skin, hair needs extra pampering in winter to combat the harsh and drying conditions. With a topknot you can apply on a leave-in hair mask in the morning and leave them in all day without anyone being the wiser.

They’re not affected by the wind and rain
Rain, hail or shine your topknot looks great in all weather conditions. Just secure any strays that break free with bobby pins.

They pull hair off your face
So that when you lather your parched winter skin in oils and rich creams, your hair won’t get greasy in the aftermath.

They work with a fringe
You don’t need to worry about sweaty foreheads in winter, so let your fringe hang loose during winter.
