 Few things are more annoying that hair full of static when you are trying to look your best during the dry winter months! Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to prevent winter hair static, as well as quick fixes when this sticky problem pops up unexpectedly. Try these easy tricks to make hair static part of your hair’s history!


1. Spray a fine mist of your favorite medium hairspray (nothing too heavy that will leave your hair crunchy) onto a brush or comb and work evenly through the static heavy areas of your hair. Don’t have hairspray? Dab a little bit of water on the brush or comb instead. You can also spray a fine mist of medium spray directly over the troubled areas of your hair and carefully smooth through with your fingers.


2. Rub a small dab of leave-in conditioner or even lotion into your hands and smooth lightly over static heavy strands. If you are using hand or body lotion, make sure it is a very small amount and almost dry to the touch before running it over your hair to avoid making your tresses too heavy and oily.

  • "Anyone remember the topsy tail? I know I know, it may sound a little retro, but this double wrap topsy tail tutorial takes an old school ponytail and quickly morphs it into a super trendy look that is guaranteed to turn some heads," explains contributorJennie Kay. "This pony style works just as well for the office as it does for a day at the pool. Let’s get started, shall we?"

    What You Need:

    - Hairbrush
    - Comb
    - 2 Clear Hair Elastics
    - A Few Bobby Pins
    - Your Favorite Soft Hold Hairspray
    - A Smoothing Pomade (optional)

    Step 1: Using a brush, smooth hair into a ponytail at the mid to bottom of your neck and secure with a small rubber elastic.

    Step 2: Take a small section of hair from the ponytail (about 1/2-inch thick) and pull it aside.

    Step 3: Wrap that section of hair around the ponytail to camouflage the elastic and secure with a bobby pin. Spritz the hair in the ponytail with an aerosol hairspray (or smoothing pomade) and comb through to smooth the ponytail.

    Step 4: Using an additional small elastic, secure it midway down the shaft of the ponytail.

    Step 5: Spread apart the section within the elastics into two. Flip the bottom of the tail up and through the opening.

    Step 6: Repeat step 4 again.

    Step 7: Repeat step 5 again. Spritz the entire style with an aerosol hairspray to smooth flyaways or frizz.

When I started dress shopping for my wedding, one question that came up again and again as I tried on dresses was, “What kind of veil do you want?” To be honest, the question always caught me off guard because I knew there was only one answer: “It depends on the dress!” Your entire wedding look, including your jewelry, veil and wedding hairstyle, should absolutely match with the wedding dress you pick! So how can you match your hairstyle to your wedding dress? Don’t fret, we’ve got some great tips on coordinating your hairstyle to your wedding dress with ease.

Backless Dress
Backless wedding dresses are very on trend. And whether it’s completely open in the back, partially so or just the illusion of an open back with lace detailing, you’ll likely want to show off that sexy back! Consider an updo for your wedding day hairstyle to give your back the spotlight. If you aren’t feeling an updo but still want something that’s flattering, you can also try a longer hairstyle where your hair is pulled and styled to the front and side. Think: An ultra glamorous low side pony with curls.

One-Shoulder Gown
A one-shoulder gown is great for showing off fabulous arms and a little skin, so don’t have your hair covering that up! A half-up half-down wedding hairstyle is a great way to balance off this asymmetrical look. If your wedding is a bit on the formal side, an updo works really well with this look, too. And since the focus on the gown is showing off the shoulder, you can also rest assured that just about any veil length works.

Strapless/Sweetheart Dress
Strapless and sweetheart-neck dresses are still some of the most popular wedding dress styles. The good news is, they not only flatter just about every figure, they work with just about any hairstyle, too! If you are having a church ceremony or concerned about showing too much skin, consider a long hairstyle instead of a half-up or formal updo.

Casual/Beachy Dresses
If you are having a beach wedding or a more casual affair, embrace the afternoon vibe with a non-fussy look. Long hair styled in beachy waves or even loose braids and half-up half-down looks are perfect for beach weddings. This is one look where you’ll want to avoid the formal updo and have fun with your wedding day hairstyle.
