Chilled out winter hair: surfer girl waves vs. middle part wet look

Surfer girl waves vs. middle part wet look

Surfer girls meet winter chic in these two trending hairstyles. But which one - the beachy waves or wet look - really reinvents the meaning of "winter chill"?

Styles for all seasons

You don't have to change your hairstyle entirely every time a new season comes around: certain styles work seamlessly from summer through winter. These two looks can both worn with the same haircut, so you don't even have to choose!

Surfer girl waves

Swept over one eye, these beachy waves are a great option if you're growing out your natural color, missed an appointment at the salon, or simply plan to embrace those visible roots. Mid- and shoulder-length hair look modern and casual with this style.

How to style: When blow-drying your hair, use Hollywood Waves Spiral Queen by Tecni.Art mousse and scrunch your hair upwards in the palm of your hands, letting a natural curl form. Use a cool heat and a diffuser head on your blow-dryer to get that piecey finish.


Middle-part wet look

From a sexy summer beach look to a chic winter soirée style, the wet look is one of the most versatile trends, which may explain why it's not leaving the runway any time soon. Whether you keep the gel to the roots or along the entire length of the hair, it's up to you how wet you get!

How to style: Use a large-tooth comb to gently smooth out the hair after washing and create a flawless center part. Blow-dry using a concentrator and aim the nozzle in the direction of the hair to prevent flyaways. When dry, use a small-tooth comb to spread a wet-look gel as far down the hair as you like, starting from the center part.

Will you be hitting the waves this winter, or do you prefer your seasons a little more slick?
