Five head-turning hairstyles for your hats
Simple tips on pairing hats with your hairstyle.
We all know how horrible it is to be caught with the dreaded “hat hair”. So, we have compiled some ideas on how you can style your hair to complement your hats, so that you will never need to take your hat off!
Read on for more tips.
1. The “James Bay”: Wide-brim fedora/bowler
We can’t all have English singer-songwriter James Bay’s gorgeous long hair, especially when it takes forever just to maintain that silky softness in our humid weather.
If you have long hair, however, take a style cue from James Bay. If not, start with clean, blow-dried hair. You can choose to either wear your fringe down, like this:
Nothing says chic more than a fedora perched on your head. Instead of letting your hair down, try a messy side bun with some loose wisps of hair.
Or, just section a part of hair and fishtail-braid it, pin it back, then place your pretty hat on top of your head. Easy.
Take this tip from us: stop wearing your cap backwards. With freshly washed hair, slick those locks back with gel (heavily), and then position your cap on top. This ensures your hat doesn’t fly off, too!
4. The laid-back skater: Slouchy beanies
Beanies simply spell “sexy”. To complement the beanie’s slouchy style, show off some fringe. Don’t forget to position your beanie atop your head before you style your fringe, though!
Another look to try with beanies is to have your all hair slicked back. Warning: this look only works if you have a square-shaped face or a strong jawline.
Another way to wear beanies is with side buns, because it’s cute!
Or, you could just braid everything. Side braids, fishtail braids, pigtail braids… The list goes on. Find a great tutorial for a headband braid here. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
