Out of nowhere came these bone-chilling mornings that had us slipping into opaque tights and heavy coats. (Fall, we were just starting to enjoy your cool, leather jacket-wearing days.) In addition to figuring out how to dress for these unusually cold temperatures, we've also got to figure out what to do with our hair.
In the video above, PopSugar beauty editor Jessica shows us three braided hairstyles that can withstand cold and windy days.
The Tousled Side Braid
This braided look (recently spotted on Chloe Moretz) is perfect for beginners. Plus, you can put on a hat and not worry about it messing up your look once you take it off. Use dry shampoo to build texture and keep your hair from getting greasy. Then pull strands over to one side and twist or braid them to the very end. Use an elastic ponytail holder to secure.

The Fishtail Braid
We wouldn't have made it through summer without the fishtail braid, and we can trust that it will take us right through winter. When you want to keep those flyaways in check, try a sleek fishtail braid ponytail like this one worn by Selena Gomez. Hair serum will hold the braid together.

The Crown Braid
Have a special event to attend? Then this beautiful braided 'do that Poppy Delevingne is sporting will certainly turn heads, and it can also be achieved by women with short, medium and long hair. Simply create a middle part and smooth strands with a touch of pomade. Create two side braids, wrap around head and secure with hair pins. Set style with a blast of hairspray.
