Winter is right around the corner, but fall is also pretty chilly. You might want to reconsider your decision not to wear winter hats for their appearance alone. The right hat can be a perfectly charming accessory that only complements your look.
If you’re worried about how you’re going to pull off a thick, warm hat and still look fabulous, we’ve got you covered. There are plenty of ways to style a hat with your outfits, and more importantly your hair and makeup.
Popular Hairstyles to Pair with Winter Hats
It’s a normal concern to have, when you’re worried about the hats flattening out your hair, making it greasy or giving it static. You can easily style your hair to keep it looking fresh and flattering with the right hairstyle.
You can wear your hair up or down, depending on how you feel. Our top recommendations for hat-friendly hair are:
1. Low Ponytail
Not the kind the founding fathers had—we’re talking about sleek, loose but not quite ponytails that frame your face and look good under your hat. These are a classic and easy to pull off look, saving you on styling time and effort.
2. Low Bun or Chignon
The trick with buns is to keep them low enough to show, otherwise you run the risk of seeming bald. You want to let the bun hang low and the front to frame your face too. Try a fancier chignon or a simple bun with your beanies and they’ll go perfectly!
3. Waves or Curls—Both Loose and Tight
A classic look, you can enjoy curling your hair or letting your waves hang loose under any cap. The best part is, you don’t need to re-do your hair over and over because once you curl them, they’ll keep opening up. Make it last and hide the rest with your cap. If anything, spray on some dry shampoo for added volume. Both tight and loose curls look great with hats!
4. Straight Hair
We know curls look great, but would straight hair look too flat? Not really! If you have straight hair, or prefer to run a flatiron over it, that’s perfectly okay. Sleek, straight hair peeping from under your warm, soft cap—what a gorgeous sight!
5. French Braid or a Loose Side Fishtail Braid
Braids look amazing, no matter what the occasion. They look even better with hats and caps, since your hair looks neat but stylish. A casual side braid looks super chic and gives you that creative, mysterious vibe while keeping your ears cozy! Here’s a step-by-step guide to braiding your hair.
