Mamas, have your read our round-up of super-stylish winter hats? Some of the comments we received were from short-haired mamas, noting that hats are tricky (at best) with a super-short haircut. Reader Erica said:
I like the idea of adding style via a hat…but don't think they'll work well with my super-short mom hairstyle. 🙁
Bummer, right? Then reader Meagan B responded:
Erica, when I had super short hair I found that I needed to wear a really feminine hat or one with a brim. If you wear a beanie style you can easily be called "Sir" (trust me, it happened to my sister!).
Hmmm….where there's a will, there's always a way, right? But it's clearly a tricky situation. And I wanted more…proof? Inspiration? And it just so happens that Meagan Francis (The Happiest Mom) had somewhat recently cut her hair. Short. Really, really short. And it looks great. I love how a short hairstyle can be so chic, and in Meagan's case, makes her bright blue eyes pop.
So cute. And since Meagan is a super-fun, up-for-anything kind of a gal…I emailed, asking if she'd be willing to test out some winter hats. As a leeetle expirament, if you will.
Yup. She was. And she did. (OMG LOVE HER)
Meagan sent pics with the following note:
I took these pics at Meijer while grocery shopping…it's not exactly a fashion mecca, but I thought they had some cute styles!
(The newsboy cap did look hideous so I chose not to take a photo of that one, lol.)
And one thing I thought was much better about the hat over really short hair as opposed to mid-length or kinda short hair is that usually hats would push the hair down around my face and neck and be all itchy. Not a problem at all with the super-short hair. I'm totally getting hats this winter!
And no wonder – look how cute!!
My personal favorite is the white fuzzy one. This look would look especially cute with bright lipstick.
Meagan, you are such a great sport! And you look adorable, as always!!
