As the months get colder, many naturals will be whipping out the beanie hat for warmth. It’s a cute style and very functional, but it can leave your hair a dry mess if you’re not careful. We’ve compiled some styling and care information for those who plan to rock a beanie this winter.

First, check out this video on beanies and natural hair by Naptural85. She recommends not bothering with satin-lined beanies, as they are only moderately effective and don’t protect your hairline. A better option is wrapping your hair with a satin scarf and putting the beanie hat over it;

Now on to the different looks you can rock.

1. Texture in the front
Leave a tuft of your kinks and curls out in the front for an adorable look.

  1. So cute! I’m going to try the curls out in front look. I think I can pull that off if I tuck and pin the back to the front. I don’t have bangs so that’s the on,y way I think I can get shat short look in front. So clever. Thanks very much for these ideas!
