Hats are a staple piece for colder weather, but specifically beanies. Typically, we throw on the hat and go and take advantage of non-hair wash days. But sometimes, we wonder if there’s more we can do to uplift the look. Here are a few creative ways to style your hair in a beanie to help get you started.
Frame Your Face
Probably the most common hairstyle under a beanie is wearing your hair as is and parted naturally. If you have bangs or the appearance of a frame, pull those pieces down to give your face even more shape. Regardless of your face shape, framing it is always an excellent way to accentuate your features.
Something a little more fun for a hat is to have braids coming out. There are various ways to achieve this, and the other cool feature is the versatility of the hairstyle when you remove the hat.
Say you’re in a pinch and don’t have time to follow through on a complete set of braids from the root down. Simply braiding the hair outside the hat can provide a little more style and keep your hair from tangling.
Classic French Braid
A classic French braid is an excellent choice for textured hair that you don’t want to wash. Maybe you want to wear your beanie in the cold and then take it off inside; this is a great way to do that.
Double Dutch braids will function like your classic French braids; the only minor difference between the two is the braid’s texture. A French braid is flush with your hair, and a Dutch braid will have more depth and a raised appearance.
Extensions Add Depth
Sometimes our hair is on the short side, but we want to wear long hair outside of our beanie or try the braided techniques. In this situation, it’s best to consider the possibilities of extensions and how they can benefit you in a beanie. Whether it’s more depth and volume or increased length, having the perfect set of extensions can do wonders.
The cold months are difficult for some people to navigate, and often the accessories are one of the only ways to stay positive. Hopefully, with the help of a few creative ways to style your hair in a beanie, you can enjoy the cold and look stylish doing it.
