Styling Tips and Tricks for Fall’s Hat Hairstyle Trends

From edgy street style to real life.

Fashion week may be over in NYC, but the Fashion Month train is still making its stops. We’ve been virtually following along, of course, looking for the best and latest beauty trends of the moment. What do we have on our radar? Fall’s hat hairstyle trends, and we’re not just talking about the return of the baker boy hat.

Once the fall season hits and it starts to get chilly, many of us reach for hats for two reasons: to accessorize and to keep us warm. Whatever your reason, the hair underneath your hat should be protected, and most of all, remain stylish. Scroll down as we highlight our favorite street style hat and hair trends, and how you can keep your mane safe while sporting ’em all.

1. The Baker Boy Hat

Yes, this hat is still holding on strong. If you don’t own one as yet, you just may have the urge to get your hands on one of them now. However, there is something you need to know: If you happen to purchase a hat that isn’t lined, you may be in for a little bit of trouble but it’s nothing you can’t handle. To prevent snagging and friction, prep your hair with a serum, like Suave Professionals Split End Rescue Hair Serum, before wearing your hat. The serum creates a protective barrier on your hair and helps prevent split ends. As far as styling goes, you can head back to our baker boy hairstyle round up for easy hairstyle ideas.

2. The Dad Hat

The dad hat was one of fall’s hat hairstyle trends last year and we’re seeing it again. It’s the perfect hat for a bad hair day or for a cool off-duty weekend look. Try a deep side parted style as pictured above. If you want to go for a style with a bit more pizzazz to it, try breezy fall waves. Finish your style with a flexible hold hairspray, like Dove Style + Care Flexible Hold Hairspray, to set your hair in place without sacrificing the natural movement.

3. The Beanie

Easily everyone’s favorite hat every fall/winter season. While the beanie doesn’t actually give you enough wiggle room for fancy styling, that doesn’t mean you can’t do anything exciting and on-trend with your hair. Prep your hair with a serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to prevent damage caused by the fabric of your hat. Pair the hat up with a sleek, straight style or add a bend to the ends of your hair à la Carolina Herrera S/S 2018 for a bit of volume.
