While we survived the Polar Vortex here in Chicago, we are still in winter hat season and probably will be for some time. A lot of my clients have complained about hat head and it’s definitely something I struggle with all the time and don’t even get me started on the static issue. Additionally, a lot of my go-to styles just don’t work with a hats. Even a ponytail causes a big lump in the back, which just isn’t cute. So, it got me thinking… What are some styles that work well with winter hats and minimize hat head? Two puffy multi-band ponytails keep hair together eliminate static problems. Also, if you incorporate your fringe area into the style or wear your hat behind you can avoid the dreaded hat head.

Double Bubble Ponys
1. I lightly diffused my hair because I’m loving messy texture lately. You can also start with it round brushed or even air-dried.
2. Divide your hair into two equal sections.
3. Section off a small amount of hair on the top of one side and secure it with a small rubber band.
4. Working down the side, take another section incorporating the first and use another band to secure.
5. Now gather the entire side at your nape and secure with another band.
6. Add another band every 2-3 inches down the remainder of your ponytail. This meant only one more band for me.
7. Repeat on the other side.
8. Gently pull the sections a little looser to create “bubbles.”by
