In this article, I Love Ski will help you choosing the most suitable hairstyle to go skiing because, above all, we love to feel beautiful and comfortable while practicing this sport.

Peaks are covered in snow and winter holidays are coming! Your suitcase is ready, you have everything ready to spend a few days on the slopes, but … haven’t you forgotten something? Arming yourself with a good repertoire of comfortable ski hairstyles is essential. Braids, buns… are some of the ideas that we bring you here so that you can opt for fast, practical and feminine hairstyles!

It is important to choose a hairstyle that avoids having hair in the face and that lasts for a whole day of skiing. With that in mind, here is a list of the best hairstyles to spend a day skiing, but without giving up on style!

Braids hairstyles

Braids are, without a doubt, the ultimate solution so that our hair does not bother us. Besides, we can still look nice in the multiple selfies that we will take for posterity. Braids are both beautiful and practical hairstyle with endless varieties. Thanks to their shape, they will adapt and hold perfectly to the helmet. In addition, if you have long hair, you can avoid your hair from suffering and frizzing because of the humidity of the mountains.

In this post we already told you which were the best braids to enjoy skiing. If you don’t want to miss a thing, take a look! There are multiple types of braids: from basic to more complex ones, like the French braid or the fishtail braid. You can also bring your braid back, side, low or root, wear two or even join several to make a elaborate hairstyle.

The options are endless and the choice will depend on our skills and practice.

Our recommendation are the famous boxer braids like the ones we show you in the following photo. They are a perfect choice to keep your hair tight and out of your face. They are also very fashionable.

Braids are a safe bet for an impeccable hairstyle


A low bun

If you want to keep your hair up, any low bun can be your salvation! A basic low bun is an elegant hairstyle, it is incredibly quick to do and it will keep your hair out of your face while hitting the slopes.

Two low buns

If you want a more casual style, you can choose to make two low bows. It’s very easy: make a line in the middle of your hair, then another going from ear to ear. Tie each strand of hair so that you have two low ponytails on your head. Texturize the hair strands and start twirling them. Put a ponytail holder around without giving the hairstyle too tight an effect and secure them with a hairpin. It is done! Your hairstyle is ready, all you have to do is go skiing!

Low buns with braids

You can also easily combine low buns with braids. The effect is very beautiful and it will also ensure a greater hold of the hair. For example, you can make a French braid with each half of your hair and then join both in a low bun: more subject impossible. We love this type of hairstyle!


It is clear that, with the helmet, a high ponytail is not a good option. But don’t worry: if you want to ski comfortably, but without wearing your hair too tied up, you can opt for any low ponytail variant. If you have short hair, a simple low back ponytail is a good option.

Tip: any simple ponytail acquires an elegant touch if, instead of holding it with a rubber band, you do it with a lock of hair wrapped around it. You can also make one or more side ponytails, bubbles or complicate it a bit more and combine them with braids, increasing the hold of the hair that is attached to the head and giving a more special touch to your hairstyle.

Here we leave you some ideas of the most successful, comfortable and super easy to do ponytails!

Ideas for short hair hairstyles

If you have short hair, don’t worry, we did not forget about you! There are also many options to style your hair and to be both comfortable and divine when you go skiing. You can make braids to hold the bangs or strands closer to your face and avoid being disturbed. You can also use a wool bandana with which you can hold your hair while you are warm, comfortable and very fashionable.

There are many options to be able to comb your hair when you go skiing without giving up being comfortable. You may prefer a very tight hairstyle, that stays well attached, or perhaps a looser one, that doesn’t feel too tight throughout the day.

You can adapt the different hairstyles depending on how you feel more comfortable. Be that as it may, there are no excuses for not wearing an ideal hairstyle for skiing and for the après-ski.
