With bitterly cold temperatures and snow hitting parts of North America, this week now is as good a time as any to talk about hygge!
Hygge has been a phenomenon these past few years, so we're not going to dwell on lifestyle. Candles, soft lighting, and blankets? We're sure you've got that covered!
Hygge is a cozy, hibernating aesthetic and concept, but we can also introduce that philosophy anywhere. Even with your hair! Hygge hair–the trend, not the philosophy–was really big last winter. Warm, autumnal shades brought some warmth and dimension to a chilly season.
And while hygge hair might make a comeback, we're going to talk about how to bring that cozy good vibes to your hair routine! Winter hair won’t know what hit it!
HYGGE AND YOUR HAIR
Start a ritual
Wintertime naturally means a lot of indoor time. if you're already doing self-care Sunday or give yourself self-care rituals on the regular, incorporate a hair routine into the mix. Hair, skin, nails? Get them all on point!
Bring that coziness into your hair routine with a hair mask. If you're hunkered down at home and doing a spa day, include a hair mask and multitask on self-care.
Indulge in a hair mask or hair oils
Kick off a hair routine with a hair mask! Couple it with a shower cap to keep things clean. A hair mask will winter-proof your hair from the brutal cold, wind and constant heat it gets subjected to constantly during the season.
A hair mask is a great way to do self-care and get things done. Clearing out your inbox will be less of a pain to get through with a hair mask!
If you’re more into relaxing, couple a hair mask with traditional hygge activities like reading!
Are hair masks not your thing? Try a hair oil to get a similar effect!
Entertain at home with style
Entertaining friends and family at home is so hyggeligt! Not only is it so cozy, but having your friends and family come over means you’ve got more time to prepare. Crack out those candles, the nice plates and grab the board games.
Just because you’re home, doesn’t mean you can’t dress up! Whether you're throwing a formal affair or a casual get together, use our lunata hair straightener or cordless curling wand to create a look to suit your mood!
Snooze with some silk
Cozy might not be the first thing to come to mind, but silk pillowcases are hygge. Silk pillowcases, while seemingly bougie and extravagant, are great for hair and skin!
Are you a side sleeper? Sleeping with silk might keep those awful pillow imprints at bay or eliminate them completely! Do you have natural hair or are prone to frizz? Silk, in comparison to cotton, is less likely to cause friction or damage fragile strands.
Throw in your favorite, requisite hygge blanket to prepare your bed for the long season ahead!
Here’s to a cozy winter!
