10 No Heat Hairstyles for Fall and Winter


Once cold weather hits, do we really have to pull out our blow dryers? Nope! If anything, fall and winter should be when you take the biggest break from those tools. With the heat cranked up and hotter showers, your hair takes a beating — not to mention the static that comes with too dry of hair.

If you’re worried about heat damage (or, let’s be honest, would rather be sleeping than styling), you’re in luck — because us too! From messy waves to braids, here are ten pretty and presentable hairstyles to get you through the seasons, sans an ounce of heat.


1. Side Swept Bangs

The ideal condition for day-old, greasy bangs of any length. After you spritz a little dry shampoo to revive your texture, use anything from fancy bobby pins to a vintage barrette to pin back the front of your hair.


2. Ribbon Pony

To channel your inner French Girl, let your hair air dry and do its thing texture wise. Then, tie it up in a dainty ribbon. Stick with something thin and classic to forgo competitive cheerleader vibes.


3. Half Up Top Knot (High)

Again, a great situation for when your hair is a hot mess. And the style looks appropriate whether you’re heading to barre or the bar (see what we did there?!). This looks especially cute on short to medium hair, since the bun can stay smaller.


4. Half Up Top Knot (Low)

For those of us not sassy enough to wear our knots on top, this is a more traditional version of the hairstyle above — and just as pretty! Especially if you have wavy or curly hair, this is a simple way to get the hair out of your face but to show off your waves.


5. No Heat Beach Waves

Let’s get real, we can’t live without beach waves, no matter the season. Which is why we’re all about no-heat beach waves (say whatttt?!). It takes time to let your hair dry, but as long as you shower the night before, your waves will form and dry just in time to start your day.


6. Twisted Side Braid

Girls with thick or long hair, we’ve got you! Instead of tying everything back in yet another boring ponytail, consider stepping up your game with a twisted side braid. It’s a lot easier than it looks, but we promise we won’t tell.


7. Side Braid Bun

If you dig the side braid action but prefer a bun, this look is even more effortless – and the answer to all those snooze-button-quick-shower kinda mornings. Holiday party hair winner, right here!


8. Dutch Boxer Braids
