Are you afraid to rock the Fedora trend? Well, fear no further because I have got you covered on all the how-to’s that will get you feeling comfortable and ready to take on this trend!
At first, when these soft brimmed beauts came back into style, the first thing I thought was, “ I could never pull that off I would look too silly or my head shape(a pea head) would just be consumed by it right?” As it turns out ladies and gents, I was wrong because it’s all about your hairstyle when it comes to pulling these hats off. Not to mention, on those days where your hair just won’t budge no matter how many times you spray and tug…these hats are a gift from the hair Gods for covering up those bad hair days. You can even have a narrow oval-shaped face like I do and still rock it as a casual or nightlife fashion accessory. Trust me, I wasn’t much of a hat kind of girl myself till learned how much little effort it takes to style a fédora.
What is my fedora Hairstyle?
The ultimate key to wearing your fedora right is to create wavy texture or scrunched tresses in the hairstyle, and then let tresses fall out of the hat in a casual yet elegant way. As another alternative, the style also works well with loose ponytails or casual buns.
If you want a laid-back look: Wear your hair down but a little messy. The softness of soft hair with the harsh angles of the hat make a great pairing.
For a sultry look: Drawn hair back into a ponytail or bun underneath the fedora.
Blow-dry Tips: For wavy texture, lightly blow-dry and use hands to toss hair from side to side as you apply heat. This encourages natural texture and volume. For a Scrunched texture, apply hair texture creme/mouse or sea salt spray on damp hair and squeeze hair with your hand in an upward motion while applying heat.
Here are the Do’s and Don’ts to get your hat vibes kickin:
DON’T wear a fedora that doesn’t fit you.
If the brim of the hat is smaller, tilt the hat toward the back of your head leaving the front of the brim sitting on your forehead. If it’s wide brim fedora sit the hat directly on top of your head. Big hats look better on big heads, whereas small hats look better on small heads. Make sure the hat fits well and feels comfortable before you purchase it. If your hat is too tight or constantly falls off your head, you’re not going to want to wear it often.
DO step out of the box sometimes with your fedora.
You can go monochromatic for an edgy, cool vibe like the look on the top or throw it on with your favorite comfortable pieces.
DON’T match your fedora too perfectly.
I like to stick with basics and easy flowy pieces. I tend to add them to any outfit that’s a bit rough around the edges( Leather jackets, ripped jeans, moto jackets…) or throw on a dark brown wide-brimmed fedora to break up your all-black outfit.
DO wear a woven fedora for the perfect spring/summer look.
A good pair of worn-in jeans and a simple white blouse … and wear a casual woven hat with a flowy patterned sundress.
DO develop a signature hat style.
Find it. Love it. Own it.
