Look, I love intricate party hairstyles as much as the next person. Perfectly imperfect up-dos? Of course. Red carpet – ready for curls? Definitely. Sometimes, though, I’d rather take the path of least resistance. And by sometimes I mean most winter days. It’s cold and windy outside, and for me the ideal hairstyle is one that won’t take too much time or cause too much fuss to fix when the wind whips it out of place. Low stakes is the name of the game.
Now, that’s all well and good, but easy-to-find hairstyle inspo can be hard to come by — especially when you’re looking for celebrities to give it to you. After all, most of them have insanely talented stylists on speed dial. Still, they are out there if you just look hard enough (I know because I found them). Keep scrolling to see the only five winter hairstyles that matter this season, according to celebs like Dua Lipa, Hailey Bieber, Zendaya and more.

#1 80’s Flip
Eighties-style hair is having a moment. I’m talking big curls, big volume and an even bigger side parted flip. Here, Winnie Harlow shows us how to modernize the hair from our favorite teen movie. That gives young Julia Roberts, right? All you have to do is curl your hair or highlight your natural curls, add volume at the roots and give your hair a flip. A good tip is to flip your hair to the opposite side of your natural part. This will give it effortless volume.
#2 Drew Barrymore
Who else is better suited to play an ’80s flip than Drew Barrymore? She mastered both parts of the trend – firstly, there’s volume at the roots, and secondly, there’s the curls.
#3 Emily Ratajkowski
It’s not a trend until Emily Ratajkowski joins in, is it?
#4 90s Supermodel Updo
Nineties supermodel hair may be the biggest trend of 2022 so far. We saw it everywhere, including on the red carpet and on social media. This winter, however, it’s all about a certain type of ’90s supermodel hair – also known as the updo. To recreate it, tease your hair at the crown to give it volume, brush it back and secure it. Be sure to leave a few wispy face-framing pieces in the front.
#5 Hailey Bieber
Hailey Bieber chooses a modern take on the look, which is perfectly tousled.
#6 Kim Kardashian
If anyone has made this hairstyle their trademark, it’s Kim Kardashian.
#7 The extreme side part
Sorry, Gen Z, the millennial side part is officially trendy again (at least according to celebs). Whether you wear your hair up, down or somewhere in between, give it an extreme side part. It’s incredibly simple and it’s such a vibe. For proof, just look to Jasmine Tookes.
#8 Taylor Hill
Taylor Hill is in it too, except she wears her hair in a slicked-back bun.
#9 Bella Hadid
Leave it to Bella Hadid to combine trends: ’90s supermodel hair and an extreme side part.
#10 Braided details
If millennials get a point for side parts, Gen Z gets a point for braided details. Whether it’s a single braid, a French braid, a Dutch braid, or multiple braids, celebs are proving that this effortless look will be big this winter. Lucky for us, braids are so easy to do.
#11 Ashley Graham
Ashley Graham makes the case for a sleek and shiny statement braid.
#12 Olivia Rodrigo
Olivia Rodrigo accessorizes her braided pigtails with a Gen Z staple: colorful barrettes.
#13 The Wet Look
The wet look is nothing new, but it is not going away anytime soon either. That is, according to Zendaya, who paired her wet-look slicked-back style with an incredible Loewe dress. The style couldn’t be easier to replicate. Just apply the right products throughout the hair and smooth it or tie it back. The shaggier, the better.
#14 Josephine Writes
Josephine Skriver makes a case for a sleek and shiny half-up style.
#15 Addison Rae
Addison Rae’s shiny high bangs are perfect.
