Hats can be great. They keep us warm during the winter months, and even better, they’re great at hiding bad hair days! That being said it can be hard to figure out what to do with your hair once you put a hat on top of it. Today I’m going to show you 3 simple hat hairstyles. 2 of them are super quick and easy and perfect for when you’re in a rush. The third one takes a little bit more time with a fishtail braid, but you could opt for a normal braid to make it a bit simpler and faster.
