Made for Each Other: Headwear & Hairstyles


Unless you’re barreling down the slopes, speedskating, or partaking in any other winter activity that’s part of the X Games, your winter headwear and hairstyle should always complement one another. Take a page from some of our favorite celebs’ stylebooks and beat hat head with these pointers:

Earmuffs: You skate a delicate line between looking like an ice princess and looking like Princess Leia. Go minimal and polished with center-parted, straight hair like Kate Bosworth in her buffalo-plaid earmuffs.

Headwarmer: I was once called “Rambo” when I entered a bar sporting a headwarmer with my hair down and straight, and trust me, I won’t be making that mistake again. Try wearing one with a teased high ponytail or a fishtail braid to look like you belong in a snow globe rather than in combat.

Slouchy beret: Feel free to leave your hair as relaxed as this hat is. Nobody does it better than Blake Lively with her long, tousled waves.

Beanie: Soften up this boyish hat by framing your face with a few pieces of hair, then pulling the rest back into a low bun or loose braid. Taylor Swift hits the perfect note with a few strands of her wavy, blonde hair peeking out at the front.
