Usually you won’t be able to take off a hat once you’ve put it on, because if you do your top will be totally flat, making it difficult to wear a hat with curly hair.
I totally love the combination of curls and hats, but after dressing up as a pirate (and thus wearing a hat) for a past halloween party I decided not to ever wear a hat again and this is why: After a few hours at the halloween party it was getting pretty hot and I therefore wanted to take off my hat. But I couldn’t! Taking it off left me looking like I still wore an imaginary hat: the top of my curls was totally flat and pressed against my scalp while my ends still were perfectly curly.
Being inspired by last week’s fashion week photos (hats are going to be a key piece this fall) I was rethinking my decision never to wear a hat again and started thinking about how I could style my curls and still be able to take off a hat. Like all of my hairstyle ideas this one is quite simple and you won’t need anyone’s help styling your curls.
I took the pictures with a summer hat, but a nice looking hat for colder weather is on my wish-list (like this one from Accessorize).
- 4-6 bobby pins
- any kind of hat
You basically style your curls to any kind of half-updo, just keep in mind to chose a hairstyle that separates the top (the top will get flat from wearing a hat) of your curls from the ends with either a twist as shown here or if you prefer a braid (the braided second day hairstyle for curls is also perfect for styling a hat). I think the curls and hats combination looks best with a half-updo instead of putting all your curls back into a ponytail or bun. Have fun trying this hairstyle!
