Top 5 hair accessories for winter

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: hair accessories are a must-have. In fact, they’re a must-have for every season. They don’t just look good, they can also be super practical and really come in handy for certain situations. Like when it’s raining, a hat can prevent your hair and makeup from being affected. So with this in mind, we’ve put together a list of our top 5 hair accessories to wear in winter weather.

One of the best ways to keep your head nice and warm in cold weather is by wearing a beanie. So of course this winter accessory had to be listed first. We love plain beanies in neutral colours like black, but the options are endless with this one. Invest in a fluffy beanie, colourful beanie, or one of those cute ones with a fluffy bobble on top.

Speaking of fluffy hats… that’s definitely one of the hair accessories you should invest in for the cold weather. These days you can even get fluffy bucket hats, so there’s a load more variety than there used to be (yay!).

The page boy is a vibe no matter the weather, though it is a nice option to keep our head warm for events where beanies aren’t appropriate. These hair accessories have a more formal, smart appearance that makes them a bit more versatile in this way.


Head wrap

As if we ever needed an excuse to encourage people to wear head wraps, they also make a great winter accessory! This is because you can touch your hair away nice and safely underneath the fabric. This is great because it works as a quick, easy protective hairstyle.

Why not take advantage of the protective nature of this accessory, than by deep conditioning your hair underneath the wrap? Give your hair a treat by applying a deep conditioner / hair mask before wrapping it up in a satin wrap. We love the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Treatment Mask, especially for the winter time. It’s formulated with richly nourishing ingredients like shea butter and baobab oil to moisturise and hydrate your hair.

A staple in South African street fashion, bucket hats are not just great winter hair accessories — they’re perfect all year round! This definitely won’t be an accessory you regret; it’s an easy way to add a bit of casual streetwear chic to any outfit.
