A Hat Is For More Than Just A Bad Hair Day!

A Hat Is For More Than Just A Bad Hair Day!

Tomorrow is National Hat Day and there’s reason to celebrate. Not only do hats keep you warm during the winter months, but they also tie countless looks together and make amazing statement accessories. People love to throw on hats when they’re having bad hair days, but we don’t think hats and bad hair days are mutually exclusive!

There are many chic ways to style your hair to compliment that fantastic hat that’s been sitting in your closet for far too long. The great thing about hat hairstyles is that they are fairly simple. The hat takes care of the majority of the style, leaving just the ends to play with. Here are some of our favorite hat looks so that you can release your inner Jackie O and celebrate this holiday in style.

 

Braided Pigtails

Braided Pigtails

If you’re in the mood for a boho vibe that is equally stress-free to create, go for some maintenance free pigtails. We love the braided look on this model, but regular pigtails that begin at or below the ears also achieve the look! Loose or tight braids work, but if you like your braids clean, we suggest spraying them with a finisher.

 

Wavy Tendrils

Wavy Tendrils

Tendrils have been all the rage since supermodel Kendall Jenner whipped them out on various red carpets last year. They are a fun homage to the 90s, and look incredibly sexy, effortless, and chic. Curly tendrils give your hair a fullness and movement under a hat, which isn’t an easy feat. We suggest adjusting your hair into a bun or ponytail and curling the tendrils you choose to leave out with a ceramic curler.

 

Au Natural

Au Natural

You might be shocked to know that your natural hairstyle is in fact a style ! The beautiful thing about hats is that they make ‘sloppy’ hair look intentional and trendy. You don’t have to be totally natural if your hair bothers you. Before putting on the hat, tame your wild strands with a drop of smoothing serum.

 

Nape Bun

Nape Bun

Pairing a neat bun with a hat is nothing short of regal. It’s a quick way to achieve intimidating style. The bun should sit at the nape of your neck (hence the name) and should be tight, but not ballerina-tight. Slick back your flyaways with some hair gel, so that they remain neatly in place beneath your hat.

 

Sleek Ponytail

Sleek Ponytail

This look is bad, but in a good way! In other words, it’s for baddies who want a low maintenance, but killer look. A slick low ponytail under a great hat is both classic and edgy. Straightening your hair with a styler will be worth the time and keep the look smooth rather than boho. It’s also a fantastic style that translates from day to night.

 

Straight Up

Straight up

Straight hair that shows a sliver of a middle part is a fantastic way to wear a hat. Not only is the style easy to achieve with a bit of heat protectant, a straightener, and satin treatment, but it also turns any outfit into a glamorous look! Party effortlessly from the day into the night with this elegant style.
