Here are 3 travel hairstyles for your wintertime adventures!


Textured top knot

We have been hearing about the top knot for years due to it's easy to achieve nature; not to mention, it's an effortless style excuse to hide unwashed hair and stubborn texture in one fell swoop. The textured top knot combines the usual style with a slight variation. To get this super convenient hairstyle, follow these 3 steps:

1. Separate the top half of your hair from the bottom. If you just want those pesky flyaways out of your face, start gathering your hair in line with your temples. If you want to pull it all up so you don't have to worry about a single hair, begin to gather towards the front of your ears. 

2. For a little extra volume, gently tease your hair near the root and hold it in place with a little shaping spray. You could also opt for a braid to add a touch of style as seen above. Then, tie your hair off with a small elastic band at the crown of your head.

3. If you want to make your bun a little more voluminous, gently tease your strands near the elastic band before twisting your hair into a bun.

Clipped back half-up

One of the downsides of travel is the hard-hit it takes on your hair. Oily, flat hair is often a side effect of continuous traveling and hours spent in one seat. And that’s exactly what makes the clipped back half-up hairstyle the perfect on-the-go hairstyle. This look pulls the hair out of the face, preventing pesky fly-aways. Adding a trendsetting clip, broach, ponytail cuff, or braid to this style adds a bit of personality. Arrive at your next destination in style with this trendy, and adventure-ready look.


Hair scarf

Add a chic element to your travel look with the ultimate hair accessory. Hair scarves can either modernize the traditional updo or accessorize your everyday style. These accessories can help to hide oily roots, and hold the hair in place. Additionally, a hair scarf can be worn in multiple styles. Wrap the scarf around the crown and tie it off in a comfortable bow on the lower back of your head or upper neck. Allow the scarf to rest at the nape of your neck. For a different, boho scarf style, try running a clear elastic band through to the middle of the scarf before wrapping it around your head.


Pack your bags, and your travel accessories and get ready for the winter months ahead. Incorporate these must-have styles into your travel look to achieve hassle-free hair.
