3 Hat Hairstyles for Winter

3 Hat Hairstyles for Winter

Use these three hair styles to rock a winter hat without the hat hair.

Hats are such a chic way to keep warm in the winter: They add an entirely new dimension of oomph to an ensemble, and also work well to conceal the inevitable bad hair day. Here are three ways to wear hats — in the winter, or any season.

The Hat: A wool beret or slouchy knit

The Look: Side Braid Slouch
If you’re feeling the need to keep your hair out of the way, try an easy side braid under your hat. Just gather your hair on one side at the nape of the neck and loosely braid to the ends.

The Hat: A beanie

The Look: Beanie Babe
Beanies are the perfect accessory to still showcase your wavy hair while staying warm. Be sure to let your waves fall around the face and in front of the shoulders for a truly lush look.

Tip: Don’t have waves? Sneak in a few curls! Wrap a few sections around a 1-inch curling iron. Keep them small — around 1-2 inches around the barrel — for a soft, loose look.

The Hat: Your favourite winter cap

The Look: Double Duty ‘Do
This is the perfect “before and after” look. If you’re in a hurry, pull your hair into a top knot on the back of your head. Add a fun cap to keep things in place, and be sure the hair underneath the cap is pulled taut and untangled. When you pull out the bun later, just flip your head, add a tiny dab of styling cream to the ends, and you’ll have beautiful waves!

4 Hat Hair Eliminating Tips
All of these styles are easy to achieve, but also remember these four simple tips for reducing hat hair and eliminating static:

  1. Keeping your hair in tip-top shape will help with any style. Try a deep conditioning treatment like Pantene 2-Minute Moisture Masque once per week to help seal damaged cuticles.
  2. Shaping mousse helps to keep flyaways in check. Simply spread a tiny bit of Pantene Extra Strong Hold Mousse over the inside of your fingertips before pulling your hair into shape.
  3. If your hair falls flat after wearing a hat, just flip over and sprinkle some dry shampoo into the roots to give instant volume.
  4. Applying a hair cream like Pantene Ultimate 10 BB Crème will help keep static at bay.
