Cold weather tends to have a way of killing any volume your hair may have and a lack of volume means a need for hairstyles. Enter braids, a favorite style year-round, that really comes in handy when your hair is looking a little flat. A fishtail, side, crown, or accent braid can easily transform your look from dowdy to dazzling. Plus, considering all a good braid takes is a little bit of skill, it’s a beauty trend that’s wallet friendly.

After going through the community page on StyleCaster, we found loads of braid inspiration for chilly temperatures. Whatever the length, color or texture of  your hair, a good braid will suit you. For a rougher texture, try using Oribe’s Wave and Shine Spray. If you want a sleek look, go for Living Proof’s Prime Style Extender. The best part about a braid is how customizable it is, so you can really make it your own.
