6 Hairstyles That Work Great Year-Round

Hairstyles are a great way to improve your look at any time. No matter what the intention is behind your hairstyle, you’re likely going to want to have beautiful hairstyles no matter the weather. That’s where weatherproof and year-round hairstyles can really come into play. You can take these six hairstyles from the hot Texas summers to the dry Texas winters with no problems.

1. Loose Waves

Loose, beachy waves are always a great choice for a year-round hairstyle. It showcases just enough texture and style to be extremely beautiful while also being fairly low maintenance and unlikely to sustain damage from winter hats. If you’re planning to regularly do loose, beachy waves, it’s a good idea to talk to your stylist about the best ways to achieve the style for your specific hair texture and styling process.

2. Low Ponytail

A sleek ponytail is one of the best ways to make a hairstyle look like you put a lot of work into it without actually putting that much work into it. By ensuring it’s a low ponytail, you also make sure the ponytail fits easily under a winter hat. During the summer, the low ponytail keeps your hair out of your face, and you can turn it into a bun if it feels like it’s too warm.

3. Silky-Straight Hair

Basically everyone has seen silky-straight hair underneath a winter hat, and everyone can agree that it looks gorgeous. If you want to take your silky-straight hair from summer to winter, it’s an especially good idea to do your research on the best options for creating that hair. For people who already have super-straight hair, it may be as easy as brushing it well every morning; individuals who don’t have that super-straight hair should consider looking into methods of getting it without heat styling, which can be even more damaging.

4. Low Side Bun

Instead of going for a super-traditional low bun, you might want to spice it up a little bit by shifting it to the side a bit. A low side bun allows you to get the beautiful bun look without having to keep it tied down to the top of the head, which can be annoying to shove underneath a winter hat. Plus, many people find this look very professional, which can be incredibly helpful when it comes to your job.

5. Single or Double Braids

Braids allow you to move your hair mostly to the back of your head while also presenting it cleanly to the front. A single braid will typically allow you to hang your hair easily to the back of your head, while double braids will more frequently allow you to bring the hair to the front instead. Whether you decide on single or double braids, this style plays well underneath a winter hat and under the boiling summer heat.

6. Milkmaid Braids

Milkmaid braids are ultra-cute and ultra-simple. All you have to do is take braids on either side of your head, pull them up, and cross them over in the middle. It’s an easy and effective way to create the milkmaid style. Plus, you can wear them underneath a hat, and they’ll keep your hair off your shoulders and back during the summer. It’s simple and effective for any weather.


There are all sorts of styles you can use to move your style from the summer to the winter and back effectively. Many individuals are interested in getting a simple style that they can wear year round, and this list showcases some of the most interesting ones. If you find that you’re interested in these types of simple, elegant styles, you might want to consider signing up for the cosmetology program at Ogle School, which can help you learn how to create them for other people.
