There are very few things that make the debacle of winter hair worth it—pumpkin spice latte, reading your favorite book by the fire, and cozy beanies, among a handful of others.

And while we all want to pull off cute beanie styles and look adorable like all those influencers do when flaunting their winter #OOTDs, very few of us manage to put one on without turning our hair into a frizzy mess.

If you belong to the second category of people, and are looking for a way to fix the issue, you’re reading the right blog.

Here’s how you can have the perfect beanie-hair look.

Dry Hair is Your Best Friend

As tempting as it may be to bring some warmth to your freshly washed head, it will result in more stubborn, frizzier fair.

So before putting a beanie on, make sure your hair is completely dry. This will allow your hair to stay smooth and silky under the beanie.

Take Your Time When Choosing The Beanie

Aside from the fact that your hair is super-dry, the material of the beanie also makes a huge difference when you’re trying to get your hair to behave.

A coarse beanie has a higher chance of causing frizz and making your hair unmanageable.

According to many stylists, cashmere, angora, and silk make for the ideal beanie materials.

If The Beanie Fits

Here’s a rule of thumb when it comes to beanies: the tighter the beanie, the more unmanagable the hair.

But that doesn’t mean you should walk around with a beanie that’s looser than your oversized jumper. Find the perfect fit. One that doesn’t feel too tight, but also keeps the winter cold out and doesn’t move around on your head.

Style The Pre-Beanie Look!

Beanies are cute—but they can also be a little risky if you’re already having a bad hair day.

So if you’re a little nervous about them messing up your hair even more, spare a minute or two to pull together a quick and easy pre-beanie hairstyle.

Usually, braids and low ponytails are ideal.


Even though beanies are a great winter aid, many people only wear them to deal with hair woes on a bad hair day. If that’s the case with you, an easy fix are hair extensions.
