When it comes to hair during the autumn/winter months, your caveman instincts would be forgiven for assuming that it’s a case of the more, the better (insulation, right?). But those long locks are also just one temperature fluctuation from turning into a flaky, itchy, dry mess.

When the mercury reaches its lowest point, most barbers would recommend a short clippered-and-scissored cut. In the meanwhile, ask for a medium-length hairstyle with added texture for a look that’s on-trend but doesn’t require much maintenance.

By avoiding anything too polished, you can style out gale-force winds with little more than some salt spray, a matte paste or mousse and upkeep from a decent conditioner and six-weekly tidy-ups.
