5 Easy Hairstyles To Wear Under Your Hat

With summer right on our doorstep here in Australia, it’s important to make sure that you have a few hats that you like in your wardrobe. Not only do hats protect your skin from the sun, but they also protect your hair. 

Not only should they be worn at the beach, but our St Ives hairdressers believe that you should get into the habit of wearing a hat each time you are in the sun for extended periods of time.

While a hat is often used to hide a bad hair day, it can also show off your hair and accentuate its beauty. A hat provides the opportunity for some fun and exciting hairstyles, so here are just a few ideas to get you started.

The below hairstyles are incredibly cute and also very easy to pull off— even if you don’t have that much experience in styling your hair!

Accent Braids

Instead of just leaving your hair loose under your hat, why not add two little accent braids with the pieces of hair closest to your face? This adds that little bit of extra interest to your look and can make your entire outfit look more put together.

Low, Messy Bun

A low messy bun is an effortless yet chic look that looks great under a hat. Pull out a few strands from your messy bun to frame your face under your hat. Quick, easy, and cute!

Side Plait

If you’re looking for a quick and easy hairstyle to wear under your hat, a side plait is an easy go-to hairstyle. It looks great under a peak, beach hat or even cowboy hat, so don’t forget about the good ol’ side plait next time you’re stuck with what hairstyle to use.

Shoelace Buns

Shoelace buns could be described as the cousins of space buns. Separate your hair into two even parts, and tie up these parts in low buns, using a shoelace knot technique. It’s certainly not as complicated as it sounds, and it looks really great!

Beachy Waves

As an ode to summer, beachy waves always look great under any sort of hat. And these waves are easy to achieve as you don’t even need to use heat. Simply sleep with your hair in two braids the night before.
