Hats and hair have historically had a complicated relationship. After all, the term “hat hair” literally refers to hair that has become rumpled and unruly because someone was wearing a hat.
But wearing a hat doesn’t have to be synonymous with a bad hair day. With some planning and the right coiffure, you can create a look that’s stunning and stylish. Here are some of the cutest hat-friendly hairstyles for women to get you started.
Straight and Sleek
As far as simple hairstyles go, it doesn’t get easier than letting your hair hang loose. And, sometimes, simple is the definition of stylishness. Wearing your hair down is a style that works with a wide variety of hats, especially baseball caps, berets, newsboy hats, and bucket hats.
If you’re worried about getting that annoying hat-hair dent around your head, there are plenty of ways to avoid it. First, don’t put on your hat while your hair is still wet. Also, you should ensure you aren’t wearing a hat that is too small for your head. If you can fit your index finger between your head and the brim, you should be okay.
Buns and Ponytails
The bun or ponytail is great for a quick hat hairstyle, especially when you have full, high-volume hair. But just because a hairstyle is easy, that doesn’t mean it has to look lazy. Try one of these looks if you want to dress up your bun or ponytail:
Run your ponytail or bun through the hole in the back of your hat when you wear a baseball cap.
Use several ponytail holders to create a “bubble” ponytail.
Add an accent braid to your ponytail.
Make two buns instead of one.
Add a ribbon to your ponytail
