No matter how much you love your hair, there will always be days when it gets out of control. Especially in the winter. Gusty winds, swirling snow and freezing temperatures bring out the worst in your strands. Unruly, static-filled, and tangled tresses can be too much to handle. But you don’t have to fight an unruly mane. Instead, wrap it up in a silky glamorous scarf. You can even add a broach if you’re feeling dressy. You’ll look like movie star, and keep your hair on lockdown, all in a few simple steps. –– Laura Martin

There are few hair problems that can’t be solved by a strategically placed undercut.

Tapered areas give a cut a tailored, menswear-influenced feeling, a lovely contrast for soft, feminine shapes.
