Three Hairstyles to Wear with a Hat!
Hi Braiders! I’m back with another quick hair tutorial! This tutorial will teach you three different hairstyles to wear with a hat. If you’re looking for a stylish and high quality hat, my absolute favorite are from an Australian brand called, Lack of Color. They have a wide variety of hats, and they truly are the finest quality (why is everything from Australia just so perfect?!) You can find Lack of Color hats at a lot of SoCal boutiques, including Stitch and Feather. That way, you won’t have to pay the heavy shipping price from Australia. In these photos, I am wearing, “The Mack” hat my Lack of Color.
If you know me, you know I am obsessed with a good hat. I basically wear one to every wedding I work. Partly because my hair is greasy and I need to cover my roots (yikes), but mostly because I love statement pieces! Hats are so stylish and can spice up any boring outfit.
I have noticed that a lot of women are afraid to rock a hat. I’m here to say, don’t be!! Hats can be a bold statement, but I think every woman should have a good hat in her stable wardrobe. Because what’s wrong with making a statement?! Let these three hairstyles give you some confidence and encourage you to rock a hat on your next outing!
All three hairstyles are all incredibly easy, and the the only supplies you will need are some hair elastics.
Let’s break these hairstyles down:
1- SIDE BUN
I loveee this bun! It’s amazing, because you only need 1 elastic to have the bun last the entire day, no bobby pins necessary! Medium to long hair is necessary for this bun, in order to be able to wrap the ends of the hair up and over the bun. Don’t forget to add a little volume and pull out some face framing pieces.
2- TOPSY TURVY PIGTAILS
These pigtails look intricate, but are actually very simple. If you’re trying to be an over achiever, you can wrap a piece of hair around each elastic to cover it. Medium to long hair is needed for this style as well.
3- SIDE PONY WITH BOHO BRAIDS
Who doesn’t love some boho braids?! With this style, I did a classic 3 strand braid and a fishtail braid. I always pancake my braids for that messy boho look. Pro tip- make one braid longer than the other to add a little dimension!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!
