Long hair among men has become popular in the last couple of years. The fact that nowadays there is so much variety when it comes to hairstyles, clothing and so on makes men with long hair not so rare. Therefore, we need to leave a bit of article space for them as well. Studies show that more than 18% of men have longer hair – past their ears.
Since this is a blog that covers hats and everything there is about hats, we’ll mix up these two things. We’ll talk about what are the best hats with men with long hair and we’ll see what are some tips on wearing those hats with long hair. There are many different styles you can go with and we’ll cover the ones which are most common among the younger generation.
Longer hair keeps your head warm and so do knit caps. During winter, you can see most people wear this type of hats around. Knit caps are simple, warm and they can be very stylish depending on which color you buy. They also go good with a pair of sunglasses. What makes this type of hat so good is the fact that it pretty much doesn’t matter if you have longer hair or not. There are other types like a straw hat for an example which can sometimes be hard to mix up with long hair and doesn’t look quite good.
Knit caps are different. You just pop them on your head and you’re ready to go. It pretty much doesn’t matter what head shape you have or what type of hair you have. Knit caps look good on everyone. And, if you have long hair, things are no different. It will look good on you. The general idea behind wearing such a hat with long hair is to let your bangs show. Everyone likes to see healthy-looking hair, especially on a male. Therefore, you should use this to your advantage. Stand out from the crowd. Let everyone show you have long hair and combine it with a knit cap.
We said that this type of hat is often used in the colder months since it provides warmth to your head. But, don’t be amazed if you see dudes wearing this cap during hotter summers as well. Yeah, it might sound a bit silly, but if you push this hat a bit back you’ll get a cool, laid-back look which will make you again – stand out from the crowd.
Fedoras are a favorite type of hat for many people around the world. Even more, people would know about it but they are afraid of how stylish it looks and think that they aren’t up to it. Wrong. Even though that fedora is a bit more stylish than let’s say a baseball cap, you can still wear it on many occasions. Fedora has a large brim that amazingly frames your face and puts a spotlight on it. Now, don’t be afraid. It doesn’t do that in a bad way. Like, if you have a zit, it’s not like a fedora will show it even more to the world. It’s nothing like that.
Fedora goes exceptionally well with long hair. Put it on your head and tuck the hair behind your ears. What you’ll get is a look that most rock stars will be jealous of. You can also put your hair over your ears and let it fall naturally although it’s not a look that will suit everyone. Most women wear their fedoras like this though.
Another good thing about wearing a fedora is that it is very lightweight and you won’t even reckon it’s sitting on your head. This might not sound like a big deal, but it is, especially in the summertime. During summer, it gets hot and therefore at some point, your hair will probably get sweaty. This is an even bigger issue if you have a bit longer hair since the hair can soak up the sweat and become oily really fast. Having a hat on your head which isn’t lightweight will create an even worse situation for you and we guarantee that after one extremely hot day, you won’t even consider wearing a hat ever again.
However, since fedoras are made from light and quality materials, this won’t be the case. As we said, you won’t even feel it on your head so you can relax and just rock your new summer look.
Yea, you thought we won’t mention them since we started with fancy hats like the fedora, right? Well wrong. How can we not mention one of the most popular hats out there? Baseball caps are worn by millions or even billions of people in the world. Yea, fedoras are great, but you can’t wear them on every single occasion. Knit caps are also great, but the same goes for them. However, baseball caps are a bit different. It’s cold? Wear a baseball cap. Hot? Same thing. Want to protect from the sun while you’re running? Well, the baseball cap. Want to go out to the club and look cool? You know the answer. You get the point. Baseball caps are so versatile that it comes as no surprise that they are part of the wardrobe of almost everyone. And yes, you don’t need to be a baseball fan to wear it. It’s okay.
Since baseball caps are so popular and can be worn on every single occasion, the question that arises is if they go well with long hair? And, the answer is yes. And they go perfectly.
We said that it is of huge importance that a hat is lightweight. Baseball caps are like that. They are also very adjustable. Something that most hats lack. Take a fedora for an example. It has an average hole where your head goes into and it will suit most people. But, not everyone. If your head is a bit bigger or wider, you’ll have trouble if you try to put it on. Furthermore, you’ll need to squeeze your head in and probably stretch the hat once for good. Imagine that you even have long hair and want to put it on. It could be a huge issue.
On the other hand, baseball caps and other sports caps that simply have a visor, have an adjustable strap which lets you configure how it will sit on your head. Will it be loose or they’ll have a grip. It’s a neat feature to have since that means you can buy a hat and not worry too much about the size of it. Baseball caps will suit everyone, even the big brain ones.
But, how does long hair go with such a hat? Similar to fedora. The general point is that you tuck your bangs behind your ears, put some sunglasses on and go to the street with style. You can also wear it in reverse mode. Have you seen rappers wearing a cap like this? The visor turned back, to their neck? Yes, you did. And admit it, it looks cool. You can do it as well! Apply the same concept – hair behind your ears, and reverse your hat. Sweet.
Nowadays it’s also popular to wear a man bun. If you don’t know what it is, look it up since it’s a bit hard to explain. Girls will know. The man bun is a no issue for a baseball hat as well. On every hat of this type, there is a hole between the adjustable strap we talked about and the rest of the hat. Now, this is made so that women can put their ponytail through it and wear a hat that otherwise they couldn’t. Your man bun can go there as well. It would look weird if you wore the baseball cap over your bum. It will look like you have something on your head and it will seem weird. Put your bun through that hole and rock the hat.
Long Hair No Issue
As you can see, if you have longer hair, don’t feel bad that you can’t wear hats. You can! And to be honest, it can look even better on you than it would on me who have shorter hair. Use the hair you have to your advantage and stand out even more from the crowd. The hats we mentioned go really well with long hair and you should utilize it as long as you could. You never know when that precious hair you have might start to fall out? So, use it while you have it!
And yes, we know that we probably didn’t mention all the hats that are out there. The list would be too long. We covered the ones which are being used mostly during the past couple of years and truth to be told, it will stay like that for the years to come. Therefore, take our advice and wear hats. It will make your life a whole lot better.
