From ponytails, to short hair, to man buns (not those buns, stay with me here). Learn how to wear your handmade hat no matter the length of your locks and let’s take the snarls out of short hair and hat wearing (sorry, no man-bun photos).
How to Wear Your Hat with Long Hair
There are multiple ways to wear your hair with your handmade hat. These examples show the different options for how to wear your hair with your hat. Remember, we’re shooting for quick fashion ladies, not dinner with the President.
Braid (photo 1) If you know how to throw together a quick braid, fabulous- you’re a step ahead of me. Braids can be worn down the sides like Laura Ingalls or simply draped down the back. Whether you want a double or single braid, twisting them under your handmade hat is a super cute style. Of course I want to add my own plug that this Sister Newsboy Hat is a great handmade hat to get custom made in your favorite colors. Not only will your favorite colors accent your hair color but your eyes and skin color, too! Find it here in my Etsy shop!
Messy bun (photo 2) Yes, a handmade hat can be worn with a messy bun. Wear the messy bun down low by the nap of your neck. If you want to hide any stragglers simply tuck them under the hat or let them wing-dingers fly! How do I get a messy bun? Start with a ponytail holder wrapped once around your hair and then the second time around don’t pull your hair all the way through. This is super fun way to look pulled together in less than 30 seconds. Quick tip: If you’re finicky about that messy bun touching your neck, no worries, simply put your messy bun at the back wherever it’s comfortable, pop your hat up a bit in back and adjust the hat to desired scrunchy position. Absolutely perfect for heading to the grocery store or walking the dog.
Hair down (photo 3) On the occasion that you’re having a kick ass hair day (that’s great, good for you.) AND you still want to throw on your handmade hat – guess what? YOU CAN! This photo does double duty because the hair is worn down and I’m also sporting a blanket scarf. Tie your scarf under those gorgeous locks and head out the door to that football game.
Ponytail (photo 4) The ultimate easy hairdo to go with a handmade hat is a good ol’ fashion ponytail. Wear it high or low and adjust your hat to desired fit and rock it. Grab one of those fun ponytail wraps from the bottom of your purse and you have instant fashion, especially after working out at the gym.
Wearing a Hat with Short and Medium Length Hair
This is one of my favorite myth busters. I’ve said it a thousand times – yes, your short hair can look fabulous in a handmade hat. Here are some examples of medium and short lengths wearing the Cloche Hats. This also does double duty for the must-wear glasses gals.
Short hair In photo 5, Emily is wearing this handmade cloche hat off to her right side slightly which makes room for her must-wear glasses. Notice that she is wearing her hat low down as to show some of her hair in the back – personal preference. In photo 7, Sandy is wearing this particular cloche hat further back off her face because this is her comfort zone also while wearing her glasses. She also has the hat slightly turned to the side. How do I “turn” my handmade hat to the side? Great Q! Put your hat straight on center and then gently lift about 1/2 inch off your head and place back down in desired position.
Medium length hair In photo 7, Mandy and Gretchen have very similar straight medium length hair. Take notice of how Gretchen (left) choose to tuck her hair behind her ears and tip her handmade cloche hat slightly to her right side – this is her comfort zone. Mandy choose to leave hair right where it was and throw her handmade cloche hat on all while holding her adorable little boy.
No matter the length of your hair- it’s important to be you! You can be confidently cute wearing your handmade hat!
