Happy New Year friends! I’m so happy to be back posting. It was hard to take a break, but also easy at the same time. I think I really needed the time away, to be offline and be present with my family during the holidays. The season was way too short, don’t you agree? I’ll be chatting more tomorrow about my New Year’s goals and resolutions, but today I wanted to chat hair! The new year is the perfect opportunity to try new things, especially when we’re post-holidays and in the middle of winter. This time of year is always a hard one to adjust too but that’s why I like to try new things, like new hair colors {I recently went darker} and new hair accessories. Today I’m sharing 3 easy ways to update your hair for winter that will hopefully make you that much more excited to go into 2018. Let’s do this!


I feel like headbands have always been in style from Audrey Hepburn to Blair Waldorf. These women have rocked headbands from the beginning. Even though I don’t wear headbands as much on a day to day basis, they really do add something fun to an outfit. As soon as I found this headband with a large pink bow, I was obsessed! The headband almost looks like you tied a large bow in your hair!

What’s so great about headbands is how they work with your hair styled multiple ways – in a ponytail, down, or even in a bun. I paired this headband with my loose every day curls, but it would look gorgeous in an updo, too! Say for Valentine’s Day? That’s the next holiday I’m looking forward to! Below I’m sharing a few other favorite headbands I think are so pretty and will help update your winter hair.

Berets are in and I couldn’t be more excited. I think this type of hat is always such a classic, but I love that this one has the fun pearl details. Pearls are also very classic and ladylike, but the addition on the beret makes them more modern. This beret was the perfect touch for my French-inspired look the other week! Hat options are great to have on hand because sometimes you need something extra to add to an outfit, or you forget you’re on day 3 hair and need a cover-up {anyone else?}!  Some of my favorite styles right now are berets, pom beanies and of course a floppy hat!

The most minimal touch to update your hair this winter could be a cute hair tie. I hadn’t thought much about adding these to my hair but, once I did, I can see why they’re so popular right now. Seriously how cute is this bow hair tie? Love the sequin one too! It makes a basic ponytail so much more polished.What I also love about this hair tie detailing is that it hides the look of a regular ponytail holder. It makes it looks like you spent more time on your hair than you really did. And to make things even easier, here’s a black bow barrette that has the same look!

Although most of the fancier hair ties I have come across are bows, there are some pretty ones with metal detailing for a more modern look.

  • I feel like hair accessories have taken a back seat over the past couple of years, I am so excited to see them coming back in full force this season! Such an easy and fun way to add something extra to a look. Love the pink headband especially!


    • I couldn’t agree more! Love seeing them come back!

  • I really need to refresh my headbands. I have two go to ones, but feel if I added in a few bright ones with bows I would wear them more. Love your pink one!

    Love these accessories and I am especially excited about the bow hair tie. It is probably because I can now put my hair in a bun! Huge milestone for me haha!


  • I love all these ways to update your hair for winter! I have definitely been using hats a lot this season, especially when my day 3 hair needs some covering up. You’ve also inspired me to start wearing that cute bow hair tie I bought a few months ago.


    • yes! hats are perfect for Day 3! Hope you’re having a great week Helen!

    • aww thanks Natali!! That is such a sweet compliment. And happy to be back too! It was nice to take a break though 🙂

  • Hair accessories can really make an outfit! I love that pearl beret.


  • I love all of these accessories, I can’t even decide which one is my fave on you. I love your darker hair colour. But I do need to find myself a cute bow hair tie or diy one.
