Hat weather (and hat hair) season is upon us, Leah Hoffman is here to show us how to deal…
Something happens to my hair as soon as the cool weather breezes in… it gets covered with a hat. Constantly. I’m ashamed to admit that more often than not I find myself reaching for a beanie over my curling rod or hairspray on chilly mornings, content enough to tug a hat over my mop and go about my business. A quick fix, sure, but not a very exciting one. Which is why today I’ve called on one of my favorite hairstylists, Leah Hoffman. She’s sharing two easy to achieve looks that go perfectly with cold weather accessories.
Cozied up in the cabin room of her 1940’s cottage, which was inspired by the handmade houses of the ’70s and classic Woodstock vibes (that Jimi Hendrix poster is an original signed by the printer… swoon), with her sweet cat Dolly keeping her company, Leah exudes the laid-back mood of crisp autumn mornings. Scroll on for the step by step on how to achieve the looks and to take a peek at her sweet digs:
Pull hair to side and separate into one larger section and one small section.
Loosely braid larger section to your liking and secure with tie.
Take smaller section and wrap around braid and secure with pin.
Looser version or tighten up and add a beanie.
Pull all of your hair to one side to make a side ponytail, secure with tie and tighten.
Separate smaller section of pony and tightly braid this section.
Back comb braid to add texture and secure.
