If your feelings toward chapeau-ed coifs are along the lines of #hathairdontcare, then it’s time to change your ‘tude and we’re here to help! Believe it: there are more than a handful of options when it comes to hot hairstyles you can wear while you’re rocking a hat, beanie, or other kind of winter headgear. We give these 12 hair hacks “lifesaver” status considering the chills just don’t seem to be letting up anytime soon (though a girl can dream of sunnier-day styles, can’t she?). Good news is that when the weather does warm up, these ‘dos look equally as fierce on their own.
1. Grown-Up Pigtail Braids: Part, tease, braid—it really is that simple! Pull apart each plait till you reach that effortless messy perfection, toss on an embellished beanie, and you’re good to go. (via Refinery29)
2. Bohemian Twist: This seriously swoon-worthy twisted updo takes less than five minutes to do—simply twist and tuck your locks around a thin elastic headband. It would look lovely under a floppy beret. (via Merrythought)
8. Knotted Side Braid: Here’s a hair style that has the wow-factor of a fishtail braid but with just half the effort (dreams do come true!). It’s a stand-out ‘do against any knitted or brimmed hat. (via Camille Styles)
9. Wraparound Boho Braid: This wraparound braid is a perfect ‘do to pair with a low-coverage cap, like a vintage box hat or ear muffs. Don’t let the cold get the best of you, so pair it with a cool circle scarf. (via Story by ModCloth)
10. Straightening Iron Curls: Add this to your list of curly hair hacks: the straightening iron curl. It’s another pretty-messy style—a go to in the winter time—that looks right at home under a furry trapper. (via Refinery29)
11. Hair Chalk: Hair chalk? Heck yeah! We’re big fans of this daring ‘do that adds a fun pop of color to your curled locks. Imagine how cute your stained strands would look under a turban hat. (via Brit + Co.)
12. Full Freaking Curls: That’s right. Go all out for this ultra glam look. Finish with an anti-frizz shine serum to keep those locks bouncing under whatever fine piece of headgear you choose. (via Refinery29)
